Alcudia - Old town, Porto and Playa Beach

Alcudia gateway
The old town of Alcudia is stunning and gives a warm welcome for
approach to Alcudia Mallorca
visitors seeking the rich cultural heritage of Mallorca.

Beautifully preserved, there is an archeaological museum celebrating finds from the Roman period

and historic buildings abound. This was the fortified site slightly inland from the port and beach to the south and the old town walls are impressive.

Alcudia was the original Roman town of Pol-lentia after which the town of Pollensa to the north gained its name. Occasionally one sees an especially Malloquin breed of dog, the Ca De Bestiar.

The magic of Alcudia is that you have the history, the beach, the activities . . . and yet whilst being at the edge of the island, the excellent motorway from Palma means that you can be at a concert at the Palma Auditorium and have found a place to park within only an hour. The motorway makes this a good place from which to enjoy the beach but from which to explore the island if you want . . .

Playa Alcudia

The beach is impressive for its size, possibly only exceeded by that of Playa del Palma and the popular resort of s'Arenal adjacent on the south coast.

Behind the beach, villas and hotels stretch back into an attractive area towards the Albufera natural park. In Alcudia this watery area has been drained by canals which present a Venetian character.

In addition to the visual attractions, there are also the more boisterous activities for young people, resort facilities, local shops, as well as traditional cafes and restaurants with an 8.50 Euro or so Plat du Jour for lunch.
