Majorca’s family beach holiday resort with an attractive nightlife

Puerto de Alcúdia, Mallorca, Balearic Islands, Spain
You will find many restaurants on the docks and along the beach. Further restaurants can be found along the main street.

The long stretched beach town Puerto de Alcúdia lies in the north of Mallorca, at the foot of the hilltop town Alcúdia. The port satisfies all wishes of a paradisaical beach holiday. The interminable bay is lined by a broad, white sandy beach, which descends gently into the pale blue water. The seafront is lined with seafood restaurants and small cafés. Hireable parasols and sunloungers make for the perfect summer holiday.


The small port Puerto de Alcudia is a small town frequented by locals and tourists alike. You will immediately feel the relaxed and slow atmosphere, typical for Majorcan fishing villages. However, tourism has also slowly invaded the town and you will find many restaurants and small fashion and souvenir shops. You can linger around the huge mole or sit in one of the many oceanfront restaurants and observe the slow life in this small town and the mix of fishing boats and luxury yachts entering and leaving the harbour.


Attached to the port, along the shoreline, lies the beach town of Puerto de Alcudia, with its many hotels, tourist restaurants, souvenir shops, gambling halls and discos. The holiday resort stretches along the 7 kilometer sand beach and is very build up and not that pretty. However, the atmosphere is still laid-back and the town is especially favoured by families with small children. All hotels and rental apartments have easy access to the beach, traffic moves slowly and the area is pretty safe.


During daytime you can choose between different water activities and watersports: kite surfing, snorkeling, banana boat driving, renting a pedal boat, water skiing or windsurfing, there is definitely something for everyone. The long beach invites for a sunbath and a refreshing swim in the water. The more east you go, the less crowded the beach will be. So, maybe it is also time for a nice walk along the bay.


At night the town comes alive and the streets are hustling and bustling. ‘Menta’ is the most popular and biggest club in Puerto de Alcúdia and visited by tourists and locals alike. It is a typical Majorcan night club, so dress up and go late (not before 3 a.m.)! Before hitting the dancefloor, you should go for a nice dinner at one of the several seafood restaurants and enjoy a cool cocktail watching the night falling in over the mediterranean sea. Other small pubs and clubs can be found along the Avenida Tucà, close to the ‘Menta Discoteca’.


The old town Alcúdia lies a bit inland, waiting for you with a cultural and historic experience. The town offers everything from ancient Roman ruins, over Arab quarters to a medieval town center.
