Playa de Alcúdia

Playa de Alcúdia - Spain

Alcúdia’s main beach lies at the northern end of a vast curving stretch of fine white sand. In fact this is the largest beach on Mallorca running for seven kilometres along the shores of Alcudia Bay.

Being one of the major resort towns on the island you might expect Alcudia Beach to be blighted with the overdevelopment seen on some of Spain’s holiday coasts. However, this is not really the case with Alcudia with only a few relatively low-rise hotels and apartments along the beachfront, and much of beach backed by trees.

It seems to a large extent Alcudia’s beaches have all of the benefits of being in a resort town with few of the drawbacks. For instance, the water here is as clean as it is clear, and along with the abundant facilities and amenities this has earned the beach a Blue Flag Award.

The immense size of the Playa de Alcúdia is not without its benefits either; even on the busiest summer’s days you won’t have much trouble finding a place to throw your towel down, or park your lounger. Not only is the beach kilometres long it has an average depth of around 80 metres. And wherever you decide to set up for the day you will have the same white sand, turquoise waters and views to the mountains.

On Playa d’Alcudia you are never far from whatever you need. Replete with beach bars, restaurants and cafes this is the perfect place to eat out day or night. But Alcudia is first and foremost a family-friendly beach and things never get too lively like in certain other notorious Mallorca resorts…
