A stroll through Alcudia, in the north of the island, famous for its beaches and the medieval walls surrounding the old town.

In the north of the island is Alcudia, flanked by medieval walls and palm trees. It was the first Roman settlement in Mallorca and also the most important in what they called Pollentia.

What to see in Alcudia

We recommend entering through any of its gates (Puerta de Palma or Puerta del Moll) and strolling along the main street full of shops, restaurants and ice-cream parlours. There are shops selling Mallorcan products, gourmet products and handmade jewellery workshops.  

In the mornings you can visit the Roman fort and its museum, which is located opposite the Gothic-style church of Sant Jaume, and which King Jaume II ordered to be built around 1302, like the rest of the wall of which it was a part.

On Tuesday and Sunday mornings there is a market next to the Porta del Moll with stalls of all kinds crowded with tourists, locals and curious onlookers alongside the terraces of cafés and restaurants.

Alcudia has a tourist office where you can ask for recommendations in the morning. 

Things to do in Alcudia

Apart from wandering through the streets lined with walls and houses made of sandstone, you can climb the walls from where you can see the rooftops and patios on one side and the Mallorcan countryside stretching all the way to the Tramuntana mountain range on the other.

If what you want is a beach, we recommend visiting Sant Pere beach or Sant Joan beach, close to Mal Pas – Bon Aire. For beaches with water activities and more hustle and bustle, we can go to Port d’Alcudia, located a couple of kilometres from the town and with an even wider range of shops and restaurants. From here we can move on to the endless beaches of the Bay of Alcudia, such as the beach of Muro, with white sands and crystal-clear water. 

Port d’Alcudia is the second most important port in Mallorca and has passenger connections with Ciutadella, Barcelona and Toulon. It is home to the Alcudiamar Marina, which also has a Muvon station and where you can also rent a car by the hour in Alcudia.  

As an artistic curiosity, 8 km from the Port of Alcudia is the Sa Bassa Blanca Museum: a place integrated in nature on the Coll Baix road and leading to Es Faralló with a neo-Moorish style building surrounded by nature. There are visits to the permanent collection and its most important piece is a Mudejar coffered ceiling dating from 1498 and originating from Tarazona. Rose gardens and sculptures.

If you like thrills, Alcudia is one of the most popular places for paragliding lovers in Mallorca. From Puig de San Martí our friends from Mallorca from the Sky offer flights accompanied by instructors with more than 25 years of experience with whom you can even practise acrobatics in the air.

How to get to Alcudia

From Palma, take the Ma-13 Inca road. In approximately 50 minutes you will have reached Alcudia. 

To reach the Port of Alcudia, take Avinguda Príncep d’Espanya or Avinguda Platja from Alcudia and continue straight on for approximately 2.5 km until you reach the Port. 

Tips for electric cars

If you need to charge your car along the way, there are more than 300 chargers for public use in the MELIB public use network

Alcudia has two chargers on the outside of the wall and Port d’Alcudia has one. In addition, the Alcudiamar Marina has recently included 2 new spaces for electric vehicles with chargers in its facilities. 

In both Alcudia and Port d’Alcudia electric cars are exempt from paying ORA, so you can park free of charge. 

Best places to eat in Alcudia

The gastronomic offer in Alcudia is very varied:

In the town of Alcudia the Restaurant Celler Ca’n Costa: Mallorcan food in a house dating back to 1594, on Carrer de Sant Vicenç.

In Port de Alcudia is our favourite restaurant in the area: The Wine Side. A gastrobar with a sushiman and a wide range of Mallorcan and national wines and a focus on fresh Km 0 produce. From seafood to fish and delicious meats.
