Alcudia is the main tourist centre in the north of Mallorca and is popular with families.
A historic old town combines beautifully with modern shops, cafes and bars behind the city walls. The long Blue Flag beaches of Alcudia are lined with bars and restaurants. The marina area is picturesque and attracts visitors from all over the island.
Playa de Muro is one of the quieter beaches and covers part of a nature reserve on the way to the resort of C’an Picafort. The water is clear and attracts divers from all over Europe. Plenty of water sports are also on offer including wind surfing and skiing.
If you are planning a trip to the old town, enter one of the two gates built after the conquest of the island by King Jaime I of Spain. Narrow winding streets lead to ornate squares lined with pavement cafes and quirky shops.
A day trip to the Parc Natural de S’Albufera also comes highly recommended. The nature reserve consists of dunes, lagoons, paths and trails.
