Alcudia is a sun-soaked resort in Northern Majorca and has everything you could need for a fun holiday. It’s split between three areas: the beach, the harbour and the Old Town. The beach is set around a sheltered bay with a selection of watersports. Around the harbour, there are plenty of restaurants and bars as well as boat trips. The Old Town is set back from the sea and was founded by the Romans. It still lies within the 14th century walls and you can easily spend an hour or two browsing the many boutiques that line the narrow streets and people watching at a café in the square with a coffee or ice cream. Nearby is a fantastic waterpark with plenty of rides and slides.
Alcudia Old Town has a twice weekly market on Tuesdays and Sundays. You can also shop in the many boutiques selling local produce and crafts. From May to September, the marina also holds a nightly market where you can purchase gifts to take home. You'll also have a choice of supermarkets and mini markets throughout Alcudia where you can buy daily essentials for your villa holiday.
There are plenty of restaurants in Alcudia catering to all tastes from international options to Majorcan specialities like tumbet. The night scene in Alcudia is lively and you can choose between dinner in the Old Town or the marina and drinks in the Bellevue area. Vibrant Dollar Street is where you can enjoy live music and karaoke in the lively bars and pubs. In this area you’ll find a mixture of sports bars, German beer gardens, Scottish and Irish pubs and even the occasional Spanish bar.
Alcudia is set around a huge bay which gives it a glorious long sandy beach that stretches five miles from the harbour round to the neighbouring resort of C’an Picafort. You’ll find plenty of watersports to keep you occupied or simply hire a sunbed and parasol and relax. When you’re ready for an evening cocktail, choose one of the many chiringuitos (beach bars).
Alcudia Hydropark is a short drive from the resort centre and ideal for cooling off on a hot day! At Alcudia Marina, you'll find lots of boat excursions on offer for a great day trip. Or, if you prefer to keep your feet on dry land, why not try horse riding or go-karting?
In the 2nd century, Alcudia was occupied by the Romans and you can visit their former capital, Pollentia. These are the best preserved Roman ruins in Majorca, just outside the city walls.
