About Playa d’Alcudia
Playa d’Alcudia is a long, white sand beach in the north of Mallorca, located just a few kilometres from Port d’Alcudia and near the medieval town of Alcudia. Playa d’Alcudia is one of the island’s prestigious Blue Flag beaches, marking its strength for cleanliness and sustainability. Stretching nearly 3.5 km long, this beautiful beach has something for everyone. It is popular among locals and especially tourists, many of whom base their holiday here in one of the many hotels that line the beach and surrounding area.
Playa d’Alcudia is very family friendly. There are good facilities with showers, toilets and changing stations, a special kids play area with gym equipment, and of course tons of water sports such as kayaks, SUP, and paddle boats, as well great sand for making castles. Lounge chairs and umbrellas can also be rented for the day. The water here is very clean, particularly for a large resort beach, and generally calm, but occasionally waves can pick up from the north so it is important to keep an eye out for water conditions. This is not a party beach, though there are bars and restaurants open in the evening, it remains low-key.
A good part of this beach backs up to a long boardwalk where there are a host of shops, restaurants, cafe’s, and accommodations, as well as a local tourist office. In one part of the beach there is a canal that winds besides the hotels and restaurants which is really unique for the island.
Towards the Port d’Alcudia side, it is generally busier as there are the most amenities and activities here, and as you move down towards Playa de Muro, it is a bit quieter. But this beach is so vast, it rarely feels over crowded, even in peak summer months. That said, it is not a beach for solitude!
