General info: 

Alcudia Beach is a beautiful blue flag, fine white sand beach that stretches from the Port of Alcudia, along the 'golden mile' of hotel-backed coastline. The resort of Alcudia has long been popular with holiday makers coming to Majorca and the main reason is because of the beach.

It does get busy in the summer months as the purpose built resort behind the beach fills up with holiday makers. The beach by the Port of Alcudia doesn't have the best sand but is handy for cafes and facilities. Further up the bay finds quieter spots and silky soft sand as you head more towards Playa de Muro.

Life guards are on duty during the busier periods. No pets are allowed on the beach. Toilets and showers are plentiful.

Getting there: 

There is a public bus service or you can park in the dedicated free parking areas, or on the roads behind the beach.
