Lying near the north-coast of Majorca, the largest of the Balearic Islands, this small town’s prime lure is its location close to the golden beaches of Port d’Alcúdia, which stretches along the bay of Alcúdia. The resort is immensely popular with holidaymakers during the summer, catering well to families in particular.

The town itself also has a few historical attractions: its imitation medieval walls and fortified gates, and the remains of a Roman settlement and theatre.

Nearby is the Parc Natural de S’Albufera, a 2,000-acre oasis of swampland with excellent bird-watching opportunities.

For stunning sea views, visit the Santuari de la Victòria, a 17th century church and hike up Penya Roja mountain.

Dining and Nightlife

For a varied selection of restaurants and bars, head to Port d’Alcúdia, 2km south of the town. Here you’ll find typical, Spanish fare, alongside pizzerias and cafes. There are several palm-thatched bars along the beach to keep the sangria flowing while you sunbathe.
