What is Alcudia Beach Like?
Playa de Alcudia is a long stretch of beach that has soft white sand and turquoise waters.
The beach has something to offer for everyone, whether you are into watersports, have young kids that want to play in the sand or swim in the shallow water, go browse in the nearby shops or discover the nearby attractions such as Alcudia old town.
This is not a party beach and offers a very relaxed and laid-back atmosphere. Therefore, it never gets too crowded, and you will be able to find a nice spot to rent a sunbed any time of the day.
Playa de Alcudia is one of the best beaches in Mallorca, thus definitely an attraction worth a day trip, if not even an extended stay in one of the many hotels nearby.
Playa de Alcudia is located next to the Port d’Alcudia in a beautiful bay that offers shallow waters and a lavish beachfront.
The beach itself has a lot of attractions nearby, for instance, a huge water park or the Puerto de Alcudia, which was built in medieval times.
Restaurants, Bars & Facilities
There are several beach bars and beach clubs available to choose from if you would like to sip on a fancy cocktail or a refreshing cold juice after some hours on the beach.
When it comes to restaurants, there are lots of places to choose from. There are especially a lot of chiringuitos, which serve tapas and beach food.
Otherwise, the boardwalk promenade right next to the beach offers ample options and restaurants with different cuisines as well.
You won’t need to use the beach bar or a restaurant to wash up or do your deed, though, as the beach itself has a lot of public toilets and showers, as well as other facilities that are necessary when spending a whole day on the
Lifeguard & Watersports
The beautiful blue waters at this beach are perfect for the infamous glass bottom boats one sees all too often around the Balearic islands. You will launch right from the nearby sports harbour of the Port d’Alcudia and enjoy the underwater world below your feet.
From there, you can also rent a wild ride on banana boats or oft for water skiing and other water sports that are enjoyed on speed boats.
With all those water sports and fun activities, you do not have to worry whether your children will be safe to play and swim on this beach, though, as the beach has clearly demarcated swimming areas and also a daily lifeguard station.
Is Alcudia Beach Family-friendly?
Yes, this is a place families enjoy especially, as it has a bit of a quieter vibe and does not get too crowded or party-like during the high season in the summer months.
Where to Park at Alcudia Beach
Parking is relatively easy to find thanks to the plenty of car parks on the beachfront and close by; on top of that, you have easy access from most parking lots onto the beach as well.
Other Nearby Beaches
To the left of Playa Alcudia, you will find the Playas de Muro, while a little bit further down on the right is the equally long Playas de los Pinos.
Nearby Hotels & Resorts
Since the Port d’Alcudia is such a highly frequented entrance to the area, you will find lots of hotels and resorts right by the beach.
We recommend the Hotel Paraiso d’Alcudia, Zafiro Tropic or Sofia Alcudia Beach.
However, you will find something for every taste, requirement and budget in the greater Alcudia area.
