Summary of the Beach Inspectors
The range of facilities on the biggest beach in the north of Majorca is almost as large as the area of fine sand. A huge number of sun-hungry relaxation-seekers come here, mainly in the height of summer, to find peace, but also entertainment. Playa de Alcúdia offers everything you could possibly wish for - countless loungers, beach umbrellas, restaurants, beach bars, shops and water sports operators ensure that each and every visitor feels at home and no one has to be bored. The fine sand, the good bathing conditions, the many hotels within walking distance and the child-friendly facilities, both on shore and in the water, do the rest to create an ideal holiday setting for the whole family.

Playa de Alcúdia - One of the largest sandy beaches in the Balearics

Alcúdia beach begins right by the port of Alcúdia, the popular holiday resort in the north of Majorca. It merges seamlessly into its neighbouring beach, Playa de Muro and together they extend over a length of about five kilometres, forming the largest beach area in the Balearic Islands. A beach promenade runs along the entire length of Playa de Alcúdia. Here there are numerous restaurants, bars, shops and hotels, and many more can be found in the street parallel to the beach, where most of the parking spaces are also located.

The nice restaurants near the harbour have slightly more exclusive prices. The closer you get to Playa de Muro, the cheaper things are in general. The beach itself consists of fine, light sand. The waves are usually moderate. This is due, amongst other things, to the fact that the water here is very shallow. You have to walk in a long way in most places before there is no ground beneath your feet, which is naturally quite reassuring, especially for parents with small children. Needless to say there are also lifeguards in situ, who keep an eye on the water over the whole of the beach.

There are a huge number of loungers and beach umbrellas. Nevertheless, they can still be in short supply in the peak month of August. If you do get to the beach a bit later in the day though, you'll always find a spot to spread out your towel. If you prefer water activities to relaxing on the sand you will find an almost infinite range of water sports on offer - there's everything here from pedal boats, banana boats, kayaks, SUPs, jet skis, flyboarding and parasailing to catamarans and speedboats. The operators work well together and if one doesn't have something available, he'll be happy to recommend one of his competitors. You can also dive and windsurf here, although the conditions are not ideal because of the shallow water and the wind, which is usually very light. There are plenty of trips on offer as well, on the water and on shore.

It goes without saying that there are showers and free toilets here. Large parts of the beach are also wheelchair accessible and there are shaded spots for wheelchair users. For younger visitors there are play areas on the beach and even one in the water, as well as children's courses at the water sports schools. For younger and older visitors there are also beach bars spread out across the sand at distances of a few hundred metres, in addition to the wide range of places to eat on the promenade. Despite the large number of people who come here, especially in the height of summer, in general it's quite peaceful on Playa de Alcúdia. Playa de Alcúdia is not one of those beaches on Majorca that has particularly boisterous parties - it's an ideal beach for the whole family.
