Holidays in
Alcudia

A beachside beauty in Majorca

Bringing together idyllic beach and an ancient old town, Alcudia holidays offer the best of both. At this charming resort on Majorca’s northern coast, you can expect ravishing views of the glittering turquoise sea, plenty of history and enough activities to keep the whole family happy.

Alcudia’s atmospheric old town is one of Majorca’s most beautiful. It’s steeped in history, having been inhabited since the Bronze Age. Echoes of the past can be seen today in its medieval wall and Roman ruins, while more recent culinary traditions are showcased at its many rustic Spanish restaurants. Hours can be spent exploring old Majorca, wandering its narrow, winding streets, browsing the market and feasting on tapas.

Then there’s Alcudia’s gorgeous beach that stretches from the marina – a sandy sweep fringed by rocks and palm trees, it’s the perfect spot for secluded sunbathing. The waters are calm, and great for snorkelling, and there are lots of cool beach bars and seafront shops as well. Not just a brilliant beach resort that the whole family will love, holidays to Alcudia offer a memorable historical hit, too.
