Puerto Alcudia is a large, family resort in north east Majorca, set just outside the old town of Alcudia. Holiday amenities and sandy beaches meet traditional Mallorca.
Puerto Alcudia, and the neighbouring old town of Alcudia, are about 60km (approximately 37miles) from Palma International Airport, and typical transfer time from the airport is 1 - 1� hours, depending on traffic.
The resort of Puerto Alcudia is often mistakenly referred to simply as Alcudia, however the two are separate, with the old town of Alcudia situated a couple of kilometres inland from here. Puerto Alcudia is a tourist-focussed resort based in the port area and along the coast, which attract a huge number of international holidaymakers each year.
Running along the entire resort of Puerto Alcudia is the stunning beach, part of the Bay of Alcudia - a vast, sweeping bay lined with soft white sand lapped by clear shallow water, with dunes and palm trees scattered around. The spacious, sandy beach slopes very gently into the warm, clear Mediterranean sea - you can see tiny fish in the water when you paddle. Safe, clean and picturesque, with fine, soft sands, this is a lovely beach with plenty of room for everyone. This is a nice beach for children's games and family fun.
There are plenty of facilites along the beach, showers, toilets etc. There are also plenty of places to grab refreshments. You can hire sunloungers and parasols, of which there are hundreds.
You will find a vast array of watersport facilities, from banana boats and pedaloes to windsurfing, plus boat trips including glass bottom boats.
The Bay of Alcudia stretches some 11km, and this stretch of beach extends from Puerto Alcudia through neighbouring resorts Playa De Muro and on to C'an Picafort.
The port area in Puerto Alcudia is partly pedestrianised and has a promenade from which you can take in the views around the bay, and enjoy the glittering sights of the luxurious marina. Around the marina area you will find a great range of shops & boutiques, restaurants, bars and discos.
Away from the marina area there is also another tourist-focussed area based around Cuidad Blanca, known as the strip, or the Bellevue strip (so called because of a large hotel complex at the top end). This area of Puerto Alcudia is also packed with hotels, bars, restaurants, gift shops and amusements - all the usual tourist attractions you would expect from a large and well-established resort.
For a change of scenery, why not visit the old town of Alcudia, a historic old town with plenty to see and do. The town provides quite a contrast, and has several sites of historical significance for sightseeing.
In summary, Puerto Alcudia is a lively family resort, with facilities to suit most holidaymakers' requirements.
