Alcudia beach stretches for around four kilometres and is one of the best beaches on the island. It is a safe area for swimming, paricualrly with young children because the water goes out a long way before its gets deep. The main beach joins onto the Playa de Muro beach, and this takes the total expanse of beach to over seven kilometres.
Sunbeds and parasols on the beach can be hired on a daily basis. The attendants, who will collect your money from you shortly after you take occupation of a sunbed, also have pedalos for hire.
There is also a small beach at Alcanada, which is past the commercial port. It gets its name from the small islet opposite. A sandy and shingle beach, it is very popular with the Spaniards and gets rather full on Sundays.
Illegal fruit sellers often parade up and down the beach in the summer months trying to sell slices of pineapple, melon etc. They are very tempting, particularly if you have been lying in the sun for hours but beware - the fruit has often been exposed to the heat for some considerable time and the price you pay for one slice of melon - well, you could buy several melons if you went to a local supermarket!
