Holidays to Playa de Muro give you a long, sandy beach, laid-back nights and a fantastic national park right on your doorstep.
A Majorcan retreat
Playa de Muro, on Majorca’s northeast coast, has successfully made the leap from fishing village to holiday centre without losing its laid-back appeal. It’s surrounded by a national park and is roughly split into 2 areas – the quietly secluded Alcudia Pins and Las Gaviotas, which has most of the pubs and bars. The place is also conveniently close to Alcudia, which comes with a lovely marina as well as an historic old town.
Playa de Muro’s main draw is its beach. You’ve got 5 kilometres of pristine Blue Flag sand, divided up into balnerios – sections which have their own supply of bars as well as a lifeguard. Fish swim round your ankles in the shallow waters, and there’s a host of watersports to try.
A family welcome
Another great thing about Playa de Muro is how well it’s geared up for families. For a start, the restaurants usually have children’s menus. And activity-wise, there’s the Amaze’n Laberintos Fun Park – a huge wooden maze with games to play in it. Plus, about 10 minutes’ down the road, you have a go-karting track at Ca’n Picafort.
Day out in Alcudia and Palma
Alcudia is only 15 minutes away by bus. There’s the coastal part, with its marina, shops and bars, and the inland old town that you’ll find behind Medieval walls. Its Moorish good looks seep through narrow alleyways and tiny squares, and San Jaume Church is worth a look. Or an hour’s drive gets you to the capital, Palma, for cosmopolitan cafés and a Gothic cathedral.
