Port d'Alcudia is a small fishing port, which today has become a town that lives on the beach. The promenade, winning several competitions of architecture and urbanism through the port in a pleasant aroma with a breeze. On the one hand the sea, "llaüts" traditional fishing boats and modern marina Alcudiamar. On the other hand, the best fish restaurants, ice cream shops and clothing stores. And in front of the beach, mile of fine sand that draws the semicircle of the bay of Alcúdia. It is the most popular beach, which has all kinds of services from bars to boat rentals and sailing courses or water park.
It's not only the beach. These browsers have a lot to see the beach in Alcúdia in the city, since there are almost twenty: sand, rocks, accessible only by sea. Among the intimate beaches include Alcanada or the Coll Baix S'Illot. The latter is a true wonder of nature that can only be accessed by boat or after a pleasant excursion among pines and rocks.
Precisely from the Coll Baix begin some very interesting excursions for lovers of hiking and nature as you climb Sa Talaia, former defensive watchtower at the highest point of the municipality. From above we see two bays, the Serra, Alcúdia, the Pla de Mallorca and when the day is clear, the coast of Menorca.
But if there is a place to visit for nature lovers, S'Albufereta and S'Albufera are two of the largest wetlands of ecological importance of the Balearic Islands, which is located in Alcudia and its surroundings, and which meet an interesting plant and animal life.
1 mile from the house is the old town of Alcúdia, called the faithful of the city in Christian times, the name is the Arab and Roman trace. A past forged between them in a privileged enclave, in the north of Mallorca. Located near the Serra de Tramuntana, Alcúdia has its back to the farm and rural Mallorca, it will wash its feet the waters of two bays, the north of Pollença and east Alcúdia. Alcúdia is located in the center of this area of contrasts, between the stone wall of the Serra and the sandy coves of the Bay of Alcudia between the north wind, the sea and the interior. All Mallorca near Alcúdia.
It does not detract from the historic heritage that remains today Alcúdia an unknown place and for many residents of the island. For surprising that for some unknown to most. It is not common to find an authentic place so located so close to the tourist and has maintained the essence of the Mediterranean city where everything happens at a different speed, where everything was savored and enjoyed. Alcudia, in a certain sense, we live today as yesterday, it is taken inside its medieval walls (which began to build in 1300). Sa Plaza is the center of "alcudienses", place of passage, the meeting point. Around there are bars and terraces that allow us to enjoy this quiet place and combine it with a good dish.
In either of leaving the square winding streets in several directions to reach a point on the wall as the doors of the Xara and Sant Sebastià, and the Church of Sant Jaume, in front of which is the city of Rome Pollentia and a little beyond the Roman theater, a "rara avis" because instead of being built, it is carved into the rock.
A row of orange trees mark the route of the main streets, Carrer del Moll and Calle Mayor. In these streets and we are next to small jewelers, shoe stores, clothing stores, bars, restaurants, among many large houses built centuries ago, small and peaceful squares. Alcúdia is one of those places where it's worth losing your streets to discover in each corner a new charm, a new sensation.
Every Tuesday and Sunday morning, accelerating the pace of the city with the market. Farmers, merchants, artisans, artists fill the color and the bustle of the people around, inside and outside the medieval wall.
