About Port d'Alcudia
With its extensive beach, shallow, safe waters, and spectacular mountainous backdrop, it's no surprise that Port d'Alcudia is a popular family holiday destination. Nearby Nature Parks and Wetlands provide a natural escape, while the local beaches are ideal for sunbathing and water sports alike.
Port d' Alcúdia is a popular resort town and holiday destination on the northeast coast of Mallorca. From April through the end of October, Port d'Alcúdia is bustling with people who have come to have fun and enjoy all that this port and its surroundings have to offer.
This north-eastern part of the island mixes stunning, arid landscapes with fun outdoor activities like golf, watersports, waterparks, and of course, activities and relaxing on the long, sandy beach.
There is a relatively large port with a Luxury Marina for private yachts and a Comercial Port that can receive big ferry boats and thus serve as a point of arrival and departure to nearby Menorca, Barcelona, and Toulon in France.
The very long sandy beach is the main point of interest here, as well as the many beach activities and water sports from paddle boats to SUP to paragliding.
Located about 2 km from the port there is the old town of Alcúdia. An attractive village with many shops and restaurants. Also, full of history with an ancient past that includes Roman, Phoenician and Arab cultures with a nicely restored ancient town center.
History and Culture
The bay of Alcudia is located on the northern coast of the island of Majorca. It has traditionally been a place for many Majorcans to spend their summer holidays and is now a major tourist area. The combination of recreational craft berthing facilities, an increasing need for goods to supply the island, and traffic to and from the island of Minorca and other ports on the Spanish mainland, make this port unique. The port has two different areas: a commercial dock and a small craft dock, which is made up of a fishing quay and a yacht marina (Alcudiamar). Its facilities also include a terminal for unloading coal, which is used to produce electricity, as well as terminals for butane gas and propane, making it an important port from an energy standpoint. In addition, scrap and other recyclable materials are also loaded and shipped to other ports. History The Romans used the port of Alcudia, then known as Pollentia, which was the capital of the island of Majorca, during the Roman empire. Although no traces of the infrastructure of the ancient port remain, it is believed that operations were carried out by a boatman.
Port d' Alcúdia originally served as a gateway for the north to other nearby islands, and as a transport hub bringing goods to inland towns, principally, its nearby neighbour, Alcúdia. But the port grew quickly in the last 30-40 years, establishing itself as a holiday destination, particularly among Europeans, rather than as a commercial transportation port.
Major Attractions in Port d'Alcúdia.
The main attraction here is the large beach that is nearly 3 kilometers long, starting from the center of the port and going down to Playa de Muro and filled with water sports, boating, and related outdoor activities. What's great about Port d'Alcúdia as a holiday destination is that there is something for everyone. If someone in your group doesn't fancy the beach and wants to be active, nearby Golf Alcanada is a fantastic and welcoming 18-hole course with well-maintained greens and a nice clubhouse.
The water here is clean, calm, and showing lovely blue colors. You need to walk out quite far before it gets deep.
Nearby attractions include the slide and pool park "Hidropark", a large water park that also features mini golf, trampolines, and restaurants.
For art lovers, the Yannick and Ben Jakober Foundation is home to unique sculpture and a selection of work from their extensive private collection. Or venture a bit further to Playa de Muro, a very popular and beautiful beach with all the amenities you need.
