Things to do in Alcudia
Alcudia's attractions spring up all along the Bay of Alcudia. Beginning at the Alcudia marina, you head past the quieter beach of Playa de Muro, along with the sands and shops and hotels, towards a nature reserve, and eventually the resort of Ca'n Picafort. If you're looking for a hotel with access to plenty of sights, then Alcudia could be the place for you in 2018.
- S'Albufera Nature Reserve - The nature reserve, S'Albufera Nature Reserve, is a lovely space to spend a warm day. There are dunes, lagoons, paths and trails that ramble across the wild country. Expect delicious holiday scents, plenty of spots to stop for a picnic - remember to pick up your waste - and many seabirds to spy.
- Pollentia - Once a bustling and prosperous Roman town, founded in 123 bc, Pollentia now stands in ruin just outside the heart of Alcudia. You can visit the site and walk amongst the ruins, ideal for a cooler day. There's also a museum next to the church in Alcudia which shows off some of the artefacts found in Pollentia and also representations of what the city may have once looked like.
- Bay of Alcudia, Playa de Muro, C'an Picafort - The Port d'Alcudia, as the name might suggest, was once a thriving port that serviced the town of Alcudia. Now the area is mostly a commercial marina, and although there are some restaurants, shops and bars, you only have to head 100 or so metres down the coast to get away from the mudflats of the beach around the port. The coast transforms from Alcudia Beach to Playa de Muro, a popular spot for families, and as you head further south you'll pass a rugged area of beach that belongs to the nature reserve, and then finally hit C'an Picafort. A hotel or aparthotel at any point along this coastline is bound to please the whole family.
When to visit Alcudia
Alcudia is located in the north of Majorca and enjoys a lovely warm climate. The summer months of July and August are the best times to visit the town as the island basks in hot sunshine and there is hardly a chance of rainfall.
