Interesting facts about Alcudia!
Alcudia is one of the most unique towns off the Northern coast of Majorca. Surrounded by a medieval wall, built sometime in the 13th century, this beach town is a favourite of travelling families searching for relaxation and excitement. It first became a tourist destination in the 1970s as Puerto de Alcudia developed golf courses, parks, and beaches that attracted visitors from all over Europe.
The year-round summer spot has something going on every day. Sunday and Tuesday, a famous market takes over the streets of old town Alcudia, perfect for finding unique gifts and keepsakes to take home with you. After shopping, head to one of the many quiet coves and sandy beaches that stretch as far as C'an Picafort.
If you're coming in town for one of Alcudia's many festivals, whether it's Alcudia Jazz Festival or the Ironman Triathlon, consider staying at Bellevue, a large resort featuring eight swimming pools and 17 apartment blocks.
Spend at least one day taking in the history of this incredible town, from the Roman amphitheatre to the church of Saint Jaume, built in 1882. Or charter a boat for the day and take off from Playa del Puerto de Alcudia to relax amongst the waves. End your night at one of the many delicious restaurants along the northern part of the island, where you'll find everything from Italian to Chinese cuisine.
