Situated on the North-East coast of Majorca, Alcudia is one of the most popular Balearic resorts with English-speaking holidaymakers. This website is dedicated exclusively to the resort.
If you are coming on holiday to Alcudia, we hope the site acts as a useful aid to your visit. However, if there is anything you still want to know check out our Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) page.
Alcudia has almost 5 miles of golden sands stretching from the Port of Alcudia through to Playa de Muro. Because of the extent of this area of Mallorca, this site covers the area only up to the boundary Playa de Muro - but don't worry, as this covers the area most popular with the English-speaking holidaymakers.
The port area is relaxing by day and by night, and there is a wide choice of bars and restaurants which offer local Mallorquin, as well as other Mediterranean and European dishes. The fish restaurants around the port are a must if that is your preference.
But don't worry you can also get your full English (or Scottish) breakfast, or traditional Sunday lunch with roast beef and Yorkshire pud, and of course a pint of bitter to wash it down.
The original Alcudia old town is situated around 2 miles inland from the port, and for many centuries it's imposing city walls protected the local community from invasion and frequent pirate attacks. The old town is certainly well worth a visit whilst on the island, with parts of the town dating back to around 1300.
However, what visitors may not realise, is that it was originally the Phoenicians and Greeks who first settled here, closely followed in the 2nd Century BC by the Romans, who made Alcudia the capital of the island.
Covering an area of almost 150,000m2, the Belle Vue Apartments in the resort of Puerto de Alcudia is, at the time of writing, the largest resort complex in Europe, and offers visitors 1,474 guest rooms which are distributed between 17 buildings.
The area of the resort around the Belle Vue Apartments is very popular with the English-speaking holidaymakers and as a result, there is a host of bars to pick from, many offering food and/or evening entertainment. This is where a large part of the nightime entertainment takes place.
The resort of Puerto de Alcudia is spread either side of the busy Ma-12 northern coast road, and when booking accommodation here it is our recommendation to first check on which side of this road your hotel or apartment is situated.
For the more adventurous, brave or just stupid, this road does also have a "dedicated" cycle lane running the full length of the resort, although on occasions you do have to share this lane with taxis, or other locals who can't be bothered with the formality of using the main road.
Overall, Puerto de Alcudia is a very family friendly resort. The warm shallow waters of Alcudia Bay make the resort very popular with families with young children, and the beach is without doubt a major attraction here with its fine, clean sand and wide variety of water sports and other facilities available to suit all tastes.
Yes, the resort does have a small number of late night bars and nightclubs, but these could never compare either in quantity or volume to the all night clubs to be found in the popular south coast resorts frequented by the 18 - 30 crowd.
