resorts, Alcudia, Mallorca

The Port of Alcudia, two kilometres from the town of Alcudia, has grown considerably over recent decades. Until the mid sixties it was a small harbour with one storey houses.

Now it's a thriving resort and beloved by British holidaymakers with many returning year after year, and it’s easy to see why!

With its wide sweeping bay of soft golden sand, just perfect for family fun, an expansive selection of bars and restaurants and a very pretty marina...it all adds up to a fabulous holiday destination! Add to that a back drop of pine covered mountains, a protected natural park loved by bird-watchers and an ancient walled town within easy reach and you have the full package!

If you ever manage to get the family off the fabulous beach, Alcudia is a three in one holiday!
There’s the main resort area known as ‘the port’ which is built around a network of canals, an historic walled town (2kms inland) with its atmospheric medieval quarter, and finally the old fishing port choc-o-bloc with local flavour. With some terrific bars and shops each has its own ambience, and no doubt you’ll discover your favourite!

Getting out and about on the bus service is easy or hire a bike as a bike lane runs along most of the length of the main road round the bay.

Beach:

The star of the show as far as Alcudia is concerned! Calm, shallow waters gently lap the shore so it’s ideal for toddlers to play safely. There’s over 5 miles of light golden sand to enjoy, so you won't be stuck finding your own spot to relax in. If you continue along its length it eventually joins up with Playa de Muro. Good facilities, water-sports etc. Blue flag beach

Nightlife:

Laid back and family orientated (many bars have fun parks or children’s entertainment).
Head for the Bellevue area for nightlife and visit the late night market on the seafront. Plenty of choice for those who enjoy dining out.  The old town is more sophisticated than the resort and suits couples. The Vai Fora (Son et Lumiere) light shows by the city walls are worth a look.

Who goes there:

Families, couples, groups of friends. In fact this resort suits everyone, and the old town has even started to see some trendy 'boutique' style hotels springing up.

What to do:

  • Visit the Old Town of Alcudia and discover the rich history left by the Moors, Romans and Byzantines to name a few! The Roman amphiteatre is worth a visit. http://www.ajuntamentalcudia.net/pollentia/
  • Market day in Alcudia Town (can be busy through!)
  • Hydropark water park http://www.hidropark.com
  • Take a ride on the Sightseeing bus that tours the resort in the summer months
  • Pirate show (one for adults and one for kids so be careful which you book!)
  • Boat trips along the coast

Fiestas:

17th January with the festival of the patron saint of animals, Sant Antoni. Locals  light fires and roast "botifarrons". The next day is the ‘blessing of the animals’ when locals have their pets blessed by the town priest.

January 20th is the festival of Sant Sebastia (St Stephen). The saints statue is festooned with orange blossom and paraded through the town.

29th June the patron saint of sailors, Sant Pedro (St Peter) is honored. Boats, all decorated for the event, escort a statue of the saint around the bay followed by celebrations.

July 25th is a week of fiesta celebrating Sant Jaime (St James) the patron saint of Alcudia. There’s plenty of live music events, dancing and religious celebrations.

August 24th the children of Alcudia parade the streets carrying Chinese lanterns carved from melons for the fiesta Les Llanternes.

Psst! Alcudia was once the Capital of Majorca during the Roman invasion before Palma took over.
