Playa De Muro

Playa de Muro Holidays

This secluded spot, nestled between Alcudia and Can Picafort, is popular with honeymooners and couples who want relaxation, pampering or a romantic escape. The resort is surrounded by immense natural beauty, from the clear, blue sea that laps its pristine shores to the lush national park behind it. Peaceful Playa de Muro has only recently been built up from a sleepy fishing village, but is already making its mark as an exclusive destination, thanks to its luxury 4* and 5* resorts. Playa de Muro is absolutely renowned for luxury, romantic holidays to Majorca.

The beach life

The main attraction at this resort is by far the vast stretch of sandy beach that runs between Alcudia and C'an Picafort. Playa de Muro beach is almost eight kilometres long and is surrounded by swaying palm trees and gardens.

Most of the hotels are located on this sandy stretch and have beachfront access. You'll also find an array of restaurants and plenty of shops lining the coastal promenade. The beach itself has soft, white sand and shallow waters so you'll be able to walk far out into the Mediterranean Sea while the water still only comes up to your knees.

There are tons of activities and water sports taking place down on the beach and you can join in with the kite surfing, snorkelling and boat rides that sail from resort to resort. Hiring bikes is a great way to make your way around Playa de Muro. You can ride the long cycling path that leads from Alcudia to C'an Picafort and spend a day exploring the neighbouring resorts.

If you have children with you they'll love splashing in the gentle waves and you can feel at ease knowing that a lifeguard is always keeping watch over the waters. So, simply hire a sun lounger and unwind under the sun as the kids play in the shallows.

Most of the shops and boutiques in Playa de Muro are located on the promenade by the beach. Here you'll find tons of little places to pick up some souvenirs of your trip as well as a few clothing stores selling the latest fashions and all-important beach gear.

The Saturday market beside the beach is the place to eat Majorcan doughnuts and browse the jewellery, leather goods and local olive oil. Or for a traditional street market, head to nearby Muro on Sundays.

Restaurants on your doorstep

There is a great variety of restaurants available in Playa de Muro. Again, the majority of these are situated on the promenade – ideal for beach lovers to drop in and grab a bite before heading back to top up their tan.

These restaurants and cafes offer stunning views out across the Mediterranean Sea and are in a great location only a few minutes' walk from the main hotels. You'll find a diverse selection of food, from authentic local Spanish cuisine to Irish pubs and pizza joints. Whatever you're craving there is a restaurant for you, with an epic view to top it all off.

Family fun

Even though Playa de Muro is mostly geared towards adults, there are a number of things for kids to do around the area, perfect for those on a family holiday to Majorca. The main event is without a doubt the beach, with its tame, shallow waters.

But if the kids are looking for a bit more excitement the Amaze'n Laberintos Fun Park is right next door in Alcudia. This Fun Park consists of a giant wooden adventure maze with games within the labyrinth. Inside, kids will meet wizards, magicians, dragons, monsters and fairies who will help them make their way through the 1356-metre long maze.

Another fun family day out involves spinning around the go-karting track just 10 minutes away in the neighbouring resort of Ca'n Picafort. This exciting speed circuit is open every day from May to October and can be enjoyed by anyone ages four and up. The go-karting track is also a favourite with adults.

Nearby neighbours

If you are staying in Playa de Muro for a while and the quiet beach life isn't enough, head to the much busier resort of Alcudia, a 15-minute drive away. This Moorish city boasts amazing architecture and medieval walls to explore. Walk down the twisty narrow alleyways and make your way to Alcudia's stunning Marina and you'll find an array of shops, bars and restaurants to keep you busy for most of the day.

Meal and a cocktail

The majority of Playa de Muro's restaurants are found on the promenade which means you can enjoy a stunning view of the white beach and blue ocean as you dine.

Some of the great beachside restaurants include Elisa, Can Gavella and Royal Beach. Most of these eateries are also great locations to sit and enjoy a fruity cocktail too as you watch the waves brush the shore.

Footfall in this resort never gets too busy and with 5km of beach to share you'll never feel overcrowded. That means you can choose your travel time to enjoy the best weather possible.
