Playa de Muro

We visit Playa de Muro, one of the most unspoilt and best preserved beaches in the north of Mallorca.

Platja de Muro is located between Port d’Alcudia and Can Picafort, in the northern part of the island. It has an extension of 5.5 km of fine white sand and crystal clear waters in the bay of Alcudia and boasts Blue Flag status every year for its optimum environmental conditions and facilities.

It is one of the beaches of Mallorca most visited by both locals and tourists, but, given its large extension, finding a place to be quiet is relatively easy even in the months of high season. Especially if you walk to the unspoilt beach of Es Comu, protected by the S’Albufera Natural Park.

What to see in Playa de Muro

The beach of Muro is divided into 3 areas and each of them offers different activities, suitable for all types of visitors. It is ideal for families and also a meeting point for windsurfers and kitesurfers. 

The area closest to Port d’Alcudia is the busiest and offers the most services: restaurants, toilets, beach umbrellas and sun loungers for rent next to flats and hotels.  

If we move away from the most touristy area we reach Es Branc, which begins at the mouth of the S’Oberta tributary within the Natural Park of S’Albufera.  

The most unspoilt and natural area is called Es Comu. A stretch of 1.5 km full of dunes, pines and bushes in a protected area that is not crowded at all, as access is pedestrian. Either from Es Branc, or from the lively beach of Es Capellans in Can Picafort, located 1 km away. 

Things to do in Playa de Muro

If you decide to go to Playa de Muro, here are our suggestions to make the most of your visit:

  • Walk along the fine golden sand until you reach the S’Albufera Natural Park area.
  • Enjoy a quiet swim in its turquoise, crystal-clear waters, letting the water gradually cover your body as you walk along the splendid sandy beach. 
  • Hire a kayak or paddle surf and explore the less-travelled area of Platja de Muro from the sea. 
  • Go to the bird observatories in the S’Albufera Natural Park. 
  • Close the excursion eating a good rice or fideuá with your feet in the sand at the beach bars of Es Capellans. 
  • For photographers and instagrammers,there are two points of interest close to Muro beach: the jetty at Alcudia beach and the sculptures by Joan Bennàssar in Can Picafort. 
  • Discover the holiday huts of Es Capellans. 

How to get to Playa de Muro

From Palma, take the Ma-13 Alcudia road until km 41, where you will find the Ma-3433 exit towards Carrer Rodríguez de la Fuente. 

To access Playa de Muro you can do so from Port d’Alcudia or from the end closest to Can Picafort. Both have public parking areas and charging points where electric cars don’t pay ORA. 

Tips for electric cars

We recommend that during your visit to Playa de Muro you take the opportunity to charge your car at any of the free chargers of the Melib network located at the ends of the beach (Can Picafort or Port d’Alcudia).

Best places to eat in Playa de Muro

If after the walk you’re hungry and want to continue enjoying the views and the beach, we recommend that you book a table at the beach bars on the Es Capellans beach. It’s a tourist beach, but it’s also lively and has a better gastronomic offer. 

Can Gavella is a classic. Eating one of their rice dishes or fideuá with your feet in the sand and the turquoise water less than 20m away is an accessible luxury as long as you remember to book a table beforehand.  

Ponderosa Beach or La Santa with Mediterranean cuisine, are also highly recommended for their location and are always very lively.
