Holidays in Alcudia are highly popular with British and European travellers. With its beautiful white sandy beach, Alcudia is one of Mallorca’s more quiet and relaxing resorts. Situated just over thirty miles north of Palma, the purpose built resort of Alcudia has a laid-back atmosphere and is ideally positioned for exploring the north of the island. Holidays to Alcudia can be a little more expensive than other resorts in Mallorca, you’ll find plenty of package holiday deals and all-inclusive offers for many of the hotels.

While a relaxed resort, there is a lot to see and do in Alcudia. Along with the usual watersports on the five miles of beach, the resort has numerous tennis and squash courts, a go-kart track, a water park and stables for horse riding. For those looking for a little culture, the nearby old town of Pollenca offers plenty of opportunities for exploration, with its medieval architecture and Roman ruins. If you want to do a bit of shopping, Alcudia is a bit short with just a few touristy souvenir stalls, so your best bet is to head to the adjacent resort of Playa de Muro, which has some upmarket boutiques and designer shops.

For those not on all-inclusive package holidays in Alcudia, there is no shortage of restaurants and fast food diners, although many are unadventurous, serving mainly traditional British fare. For more authentic Spanish cuisine, head to the harbour, which has a great selection of seafood restaurants. If you are after nightlife, Alcudia doesn’t really cater for serious clubbers, although there are plenty of discos and bars, and the hotels often put on cabaret and comedy nights. If you want to see a bit more of the island, the monastery of Lluc and Caves of Drach are worthy of a day out.
