Travel Agent's ViewThe area of Alcudia is a great family location with a little something for everyone
The area of Alcudia covers some distinct areas.
Chances are you are looking for either Puerto Alcudia, with the lively bay area, beaches, water sports and much much more or Alcudia itself, which is the old town with some great Roman Ruins and medieval background, local Markets and pavement cafes.
Puerto Alcudia offers a livelier time with pubs and clubs, beaches and water fun.
The resort of Alcudia Town offers a more traditional Majorcan holiday with a low key night-life.
The area of Alcudia is a great family location with a little something for everyone.
Insider's Viewby Anna Nicholas
the medieval Alcudia Town and its port in the north east corner of Alcudia Bay, are chalk and cheese
there are some fantastic attractions such as Hidropark, the pool complex, and the real gems of S'Albufera
For some reason, the bijoux, fortified town of Alcudia is often confused with its sprawling neighbour Port d'Alcudia which has become the largest resort in the north of the island. While the Port is very much a family resort, with every amenity, I have always had a soft spot for Alcudia, an historic, compact town steeped in Moorish and Roman influences. Today, I love to pop along to its busy craft and vegetable market on a Tuesday or a Sunday.
Entering the town of Alcudia through impressive fortified gates, you follow narrow, spick and span streets lined with grand turn-of-the-century stone mansions and al fresco bars and restaurants. Foodies should head for Plaça Constitucio and give Sa Plaça restaurant a try, especially its traditional paella. I also like uber-cool, modern Genestar, with its Catalan based menu.
If antiquities appeal, you can visit the remains of the Roman town of Pollentia, but don't get too excited as only a few drunken columns and foundations remain. The amphitheatre though is still pretty spruce.
Port d'Alcudia, lying in the corner of the wide Alcudia Bay, couldn 't be more different. Big and bustling, it is a vibrant and happening place that literally never sleeps. While a modern resort, there are still pockets that retain a more tranquil and traditional Majorcan feel, such as the pretty harbour and marina where you can hang out in one of the many bars like Bellavista Café and enjoy views of gleaming yachts vying with fishermen's boats.
The treasure of the Port is its well maintained, spotless long beach with shady palm-thatched beach bars. This is one of my favourite spots out of season where I can watch the paragliders. Indeed all water sports are excellent here with outfits such as 5 Oceanos for diving, Funny Beach for water skiing and banana boats, and Parapente Alfabia offering a range of lessons and experiences in diving, sailing, kitesurfing and windsurfing. For a less energetic time, you might like to take a glass bottomed boat to Formentor for the day.
Tourist restaurants abound on the Belle Vue strip, so I would suggest Bodega d'es Port for cheap and delicious tapas and Luna's Grill for less touristy fare. A classier act is El Jardin, a Majorcan family restaurant.
Although not really my scene, locals tell me that for night life Menta is the biggest and craziest disco, and Bells which has more of a Spanish feel. For clubbing late into the night, Apoteket is recommended.
Beyond Alcudia and Port d'Alcudia there are some fantastic attractions such as Hidropark, the pool complex, and the real gems of S'Albufera, a wetland nature reserve where 230 bird species hang out, and the monastery of Ermita de Betlem on the eastern shores of the bay. Another treat is Fundaci ón Yannick y Ben Jakober up the coast, an art gallery of historic children 's portraits and sculpture garden. Closer to hand, there is the Cova de Sant Marti, a very pretty and traditional grotto.
