Alcudia has plenty of beaches - plenty of kilometres worth, in fact. Some beaches are smaller and receive less attention, such as Alcanada Beach, which has beautiful turquoise water and small pebbles instead of sand. This beach is located about three kilometres from Puerto Alcudia, which is Alcudia`s main beach. Puerto Alcudia is a beach that has warm, white sand, beautiful and clear waters, and plenty of shallow places to paddle. Other beaches in Alcudia include Playa de Muro Beach, which is a pleasant long stretch that starts after Puerto Alcudia, and also S`Illot Beach, which is known for its beautiful grey pebbles that take the place of the sand on other beaches.
Culture and Sightseeing
Sightseeing is one of the most popular things to do during a holiday in Spain, and Alcudia has several sites worth visiting during your stay. One of these is the well known Alcudia Old Town. Alcudia`s Old Town has a large, impressive fourteen foot wall that stretches around the city. The wall spans the perimeter of the city, which is one of the most visited cities in all of Majorca. Within Alcudia`s Old Town, you will find markets held several times during the week, small shops, restaurants, and the city offers guided tours for those who are interested in seeing the sights within the city, with the North of Mallorca Highlights Guided Day Tour. There`s even well preserved houses contained in Alcudia`s Old Town that pre-dates all the way back to the 1200`s!
For those interested in seeing the old Roman architecture that still has a place in the city, the Church of St. Jaume is a great place to visit. The church had begun being planned in the year 1302 by the King of Majorca, Jaume II. While the church spent many years under construction, it was finally finished (and reconstructed) in 1893. The neo-Gothic design, which is popular in many different churches throughout all of Spain, is present here, as well.
Art and architecture museums are always wonderful places to visit while on holiday, and the Yannick & Ben Jakober Foundation has plenty to offer. From modern contemporary art to a nature and art exhibit, there are a lot of things to see here. The museum also offers an educational program that will help enlighten both children and adults alike about the amazing world of art.
While there are no real bullfights still held today, the Bullring in Alcudia is a popular must-see for some tourists who are interested in the culture in the city. The Bullring is located in Old Town, and along with being a great tourist location, it is also home to several festivals and celebrations throughout the year.
