At the south east coast of the mainland Spain in the Mediterranean Sea is Mallorca, this is the largest of the Balearic Islands. Mallorca is "a little paradise where visitors can find all they need to be happy". There are mountains to walk on, natural parks to wander in, beaches and waters to swim and sail in, bike routes, theatres, museums, discotheques, golf courses, glamour, traditions and culture.
The beaches and coves of Mallorca are known all over the world for their beauty, their safety, their fine sand, their clear water, their facilities and, for their quality.
The Tramuntana coast, which faces north, northwest and west, is the sheerest because the mountain chain drops down to the sea from a height of about a thousand metres. This is an extremely beautiful Mediterranean-type coast with its own peculiar vegetation that almost reaches the sea.
In the center of Mallorca in el Pla (the plain area of the island), is ideal to know the cultural life, and to buy the typical products of the region at the weekly markets is a very interesting experience. This area is also good for cycling tours.
Alcúdia's beaches (Majorca)
Located in Puerto de Alcúdia, this fine white sand beach is 7-km long. It's the largest beach on the Balearic Islands stretching along Alcúdia bay. A place where Romans walked about in their togas and the vandals anchored their galleys. Now we find an extensive range of facilities; in the water (windsurfing, water slides, sausage rides, parasailing, catamarans, sailing boats, pedalos…) and on the beach where you can find plenty of open air bars, public toilets and showers, sun beds and parasols and much more. It's Alcúdia's largest beach, the most accessible, the one with the widest sport and fun facilities and the safest one. The water flows calmly and deepens gradually.
We can divide this long beach in two sections: the first one starts at the marina. It has a two kilometre-long promenade until Ciudad Blanca. This is the main sport and fun facilities area. The second section stretches from Ciudad Blanca to Playa de Muro. Nature here stays more unspoiled. To this section come both those who look for a place to rest and those who want to enjoy some exercise. Sun chairs and parasols can also be rented in this peaceful section.
However, Alcúdia Bay boasts many other beaches belonging to the neighbouring councils of Playas de Muro, Can Picafort and Colonia de San Pedro. There are several Red Cross first-aid posts along the bay.
