If you hire a car during your stay here, there is so much to see on the island. Day trips to Valldemossa and Deya are highly recommended.
Deya is a picturesque town and is home to many artists and painters. When you see the tranquility of the place you can see why. It is also the home of the world famous La Residencia Hotel that was once owned by Sir Richard Branson, and many famous celebrities still often stay there, so keep your eyes open while walking through the streets, you never know who you might bump into.
The same can be said about Valldemossa, because Michael Douglas and Mrs. D can often been seen walking through the town. They own a house nearby (a big one!) and have close links with Valldemossa.
The road from Alcudia through Pollensa, Lluc, Soller and onto Deya and Valldemossa is very twisty - but is spectacular at the same time.
A bit closer to Alcudia is the famous S'Albufera nature reserve where a small selection of the Mallorca's wonderful wildlife and plantlife can be seen. There are estimated to be some 230 species of bird either nesting, passing through or permanently in Albufera at any one time.
Another nearby trip worth making is to Formentor. You can either make the journey by car, or catch a ferry from one of the various points along the beach in Alcudia.
For the more adventurous, you can catch a ferry from the commercial port of Alcudia to Ciutadella in Menorca. It is a lovely town and worth a day trip if you have the time and money. There are two ferries a day in Summer (8.30 am and 5.00 pm) and one on Sunday (5.00 pm)
The remains of the only Roman town in Mallorca can be found at Alcudia Old Town. Known as Pollentia, it was the ancient capital of Mallorca and dates to 123 BC. And nearby is the remains of the old Roman Theatre which was built in 1 AD.
Travelling down the coast you can visit the resorts of C'an Picafort, Cala Ratjada, Cala Bona, Cala Millor and Sa Coma, the furthest of which is only about a 45 minute drive away.
