Top 5 Beaches in and around Alcudia Spain
From small sandy coves to long pebbled stretches, Alcudia is full of great beaches for everyone. With this handy guide, and plenty of SPF 30 sun lotion, you’ll be enjoying one of them in no time.
- Platja Gran Beach in Alcudia
This should be the FIRST beach on the list to visit on your Majorca holiday. It’s a 7 kilometer ( that’s 4.5 miles to you folks in the US) stretch of warm white sand that begins at Puerto Alcudia and seems to go on forever. This beach has many facilities and is suitable for families with small children since the water is shallow and deepens gradually, so toddlers can wade out far into the Mediterranean Sea before being out of their depth.
- Coll Baix Beach in Alcudia
Not many of you reading this will make it here; but this is what makes Coll Baix so special. It is not easy to reach and will involve trekking for miles along a path closed in by pine trees, but the reward is worth the effort. The beach is unspoilt and rests cradled inside high mountains, making it a memorable place on your holiday in Majorca.
- Can Cap de Bou Beach in Alcudia
Calling all watersport fanatics—Can Cap de Bou is great for surfers! Although sunbathers might not warm to its grey sands and the amount of seaweed on the shore, when the northern wind is blowing, this is the place to come to for windsurfing, kite-surfing and water sports galore!
- Sa Platgeta Beach in Alcudia
You’re going to have to rent a boat if you want to reach Sa Platgeta! This beach can only be accessed by sea because it is near a restricted military area, but if you manage to get to it, you’ll be pleasantly surprised by the wildlife. Look out for the peregrine falcon, the woodlark and other native birds on your beach holiday in Majorca.
- Es Barcares Beach in Alcudia
This charming little inlet contains a variety of small beaches that are perfect for those seeking a quieter, more relaxing Alcudia beach break. This area is not over-developed and remains popular with the locals, who come by to cool off in the cool aquamarine waters. This is the perfect place to unwind in solitude.
So if you are craving sun, sea and sand then pack that beach towel and jet over to Majorca for the perfect getaway. To find out more on Alcudia and this beautiful Balearic island visit lowcostholidays.com.
