Shopping around town
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.
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.
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.
Best time of year to visit
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.
There are comfortably over 300 days of sunshine a year in Majorca and Playa de Muro’s temperatures get as hot as 30C during the summer days and stay warm at night. Winter sees an average of 9C but the days could still provide comfortable temperatures to laze by the pool.
