Alcudia Beach, Majorca

MAJORCA is hotspot for many tourists every summer with the Spanish island becoming even more popular since the popular TV show Love Island.

With places like party central Magaluf and the stunning capital of Palma already high up on many visitors’ lists to visit, Alcudia Beach in the west should also be a must-see before going home.

Why you should visit Alcudia Beach

The seven-kilometre stretch of sandy paradise is one of the best beaches in Majorca to visit due to its picturesque shores and shallow waters making it the perfect spot for people of all ages.

The white sand makes you think you are on the Caribbean or another tropical haven, but you are just a couple of hours from the UK, making it significantly cheaper.

And when you are relaxing – whether that’s lying on the sand or a sunbed – make sure to take in the incredible views, from the amazing blue waters to the distant hills in the south of the Alcudia Bay.

You might even catch a glimpse of Menorca in the distance, especially from the 100m boardwalk. Simply stunning.

Not content with just sitting on the beach all day? That’s not a problem with plenty of watersports activities available to give you the thrill of a lifetime – from flyboarding and parasailing to going on the Banana Boat.

Or if you are looking to get the most out of the incredible scenery, there are numerous boating adventures to go on and explore the coast of Majorca – and even see some dolphins with Alcudia Sea Trips.

Why not get your holiday started and book your flights to Majorca from just £14.99 per person with Ryanair.

How to get to Alcudia Beach

Alcudia Beach is just under four kilometres (2.4 miles) by car from the town of Alcudia or you can hop on the 302 or 315 buses.

If you prefer to walk, it will take around 35 minutes – but Majorca can reach temperatures of around 30°C in the summer, so make sure to take plenty of water with you for the journey.

For those looking to escape the party town of Magaluf for the day, it will take over 50 minutes by car, spending it mostly on the Ma-20 and Ma-13 motorways.

Or you can go on the 104 or 105 bus and then the 302 to reach Alcudia Beach, but this would take over two hours.

Travelling from Palma is slightly easier with the 302 bus running directly to the Alcudia coast taking around an hour across the island.

By car, this is shortened to just 47 minutes to get from the capital’s city centre.

Where to stay near Alcudia Beach

There are a number of amazing hotels and apartments to stay in right by the seaside hotspot, not least at the four-star Sofia Alcudia Beach with a beautiful pool and there are sunbeds only hotel guests to use on the beachfront – all from just £107 a night.

If you are looking to guarantee some peace and quiet from any children, you can stay at the adult-only VIVA Golf – located just mere footsteps from the sandy shores of Alcudia and rooms cost from £74 per night.

But if you want the ultimate experience, stay in the luxurious Botel Alcudiamar Club, which sits on the port with boats coming to and from the hotel.

You will be able to see the beach and the rest of the Majorcan landscape from your sunbed – or room if you are lucky – as well as the incredible boats that dock at the harbour.

Rooms are available from an incredible £68 a night – but book quickly as they sell out fast.
