Alcudia is situated in the north east of the island, the town is surrounded by a 14th century wall The well restored town is entered by the Moll gate.A mile away is Port Alcudia a lovely seaside resort where the ferry goes from,to Menorca.I stayed one night in hostal on sea front before catching the ferry in the morning.The hostal was Vista Alegre quite good. Palma is an hour away by bus. Port Alcudia has good sandy beach
Alcudia is a lovely place to visit for the day. especially at night as it is quite bussling. With the shops and countless bars and restaurants. The marina is very picturesque. The drive to Alcudia from Pollensa is quite plessant as well. On the whole alittle more lively then porto pollensa.
Alcudia usually is a picturesque city in the north east of the island, but we made the mistake to go there on a tuesday morning, when there is a huge tourist market in the narrow streets of the town. The Bay of Alcudia is close by and so thousands of tourists are entering the town. It sure is much more worth a visit on every other day, cause it has an old city wall surrounding the old part of the town and pretty narrow streets to stroll around. In between there is a nice placa where you should sit down for a cold drink... except on tuesdays!!!
Alcudia, which lies on the north of the island is just what you would expect from a beach holiday, with a range of nearby cultural sites to visit as well. There is the walled town of Alcudia itself, with Roman ruins and a lovely Sunday market. It's narrow streets lined with all kinds of curios and foods stuffs , and packed with shoppers. The easiest attraction to find from Alcudia resort, however, is Porte D'Alcudia. To get there you just follow the beach!
The picturesque area around Alcudia is well worth exploring, too – and for nature lovers, there’s the famous Parc Naturel de S’Albufera, where you can go cycling or walking.
Away from the resort of Alcudia make sure you visit the old Town,its steeped in history with medieval walls, gothic churches,a 14th century library and a weekly market.
Alcudia beach has got to be one of Spain's best, I certainly guess so! I enjoyed my visit there and this picture is taken in July 2002 when I was 13 years old.
