In the relaxed town of Alcudia visitors can experience culinary revelations, ancient Roman happenings and, most of all, some serious rest and relaxation. From winding along the rugged coast on a 4x4 experience, to hiking into hidden caves nestled into the coastline, there's no limit to what you can do on this half of the island. Or, of course, you can just set up camp underneath a thatched umbrella and gaze out at the sea.
Alcudia's coastline is varied and scenic, broken into a number of beaches that each offer a unique way to relax beside the sea. The most popular beach is the Playa de Alcudia, where you can rent sun loungers and umbrellas for added relaxation. It's also bordered by bars and restaurants, which keep this beach scene lively and, most of all, convenient.
The gorgeous Playa Coll Baix is a sheltered cove carved into a cliffside. It's as stunning as it sounds, with turquoise waters and a pebbled beach that's only accessible on foot or by boat. Needless to say, it's pretty tranquil and idyllic. Once there, you can meet and greet the colourful fish swimming offshore or explore the caves lining the coast.
The Playa de Sant Joan is a peaceful bay lined with green cliffs, while the bustling Playa de Aucanada is a great day out with the family. Thatched umbrellas and sun loungers line the shore, while a long, wooden pier extends out into the water and is an excellent leaping-off point for a cool swim. It's no wonder that for many people booking last minute holidays to Majorca, Alcudia is the destination of choice.
