Alcudia Beach Guide

A family favourite, Alcudia’s beach is located on the North coast of Majorca.

Locally the beach is known as Playa d’Alcudia.

Alcudia beach is one of the most popular beaches on the island of Mallorca, and it’s easy to see why.

With its white sand and crystal-clear water, Alcudia beach is the perfect place to relax and enjoy the Mediterranean sun.

Alcudia beach is located just a few kilometres from the Port of Alcudia (Port d’Alcudia) & just a stone’s throw from the beautiful Alcudia town which is worth visiting for its market & to explore the medieval old town area.

Alcudia beach is not just a place to sunbathe; there are plenty of activities to keep you entertained.

From windsurfing and sailing to paddle-boarding and kayaking, there’s something for everyone.

Alcudia beach has been a family-oriented favourite holiday destination for years.

If you want to explore the area, there are plenty of restaurants, bars and shops to keep you busy.

It boasts the largest beach in Majorca, stretching out over 7KM and is perfect for all swimmers, as the water gets gently deeper.

Alcudia beach is actually 4KM and joins Playa de Muro beach which is a further 3KM.

You can’t tell where one stops and the other starts to be honest.

So whether you’re looking for a relaxing break or an action-packed holiday, Alcudia beach is the perfect destination.

Alcudia beach safety

During peak season there are lifeguards on duty along the entire length of Alcudia beach.

The beach is not particularly dangerous for swimmers, however, there can be high winds in the area which can sometimes cause large waves to form which can sweep people off their feet if caught out.

As always when visiting the beach, take sensible precautions.

Take note of any flags the lifeguard has placed on the beach & obey them.

Check out our guide to the beach flags of Mallorca so you know what to look for.

If you are swimming, also make sure you stay out of the allocated boat channels that are marked from the beach with buoys.

These are used for jet skis, windsurfers, etc. to safely enter & exit the water & reduce the likelihood of accidentally hitting a bather!

Hotels in Alcudia beach

There are plenty of hotels fronting the beach at Alcudia.

One that I’ve stayed in & found to be very comfortable is the Iberostar Playa de Muro located on the main beach road (Ma-12).

The beachside rooms face diagonally over the pool area with views of Alcudia Bay through the trees.

Another hotel I can personally recommend is the Iberostar Alcudia Park which, when I visited, had excellent food & great unhindered views toward the beach from the inner rooms.

The last time I counted there was about 30 large, multiplex type hotels along Alcudia beach.

So you have plenty to choose from!
