Of particular note to visit is Playa de Alcudia with its fine white sand and many facilities and water sports on offer. Playa de S’Illot is a small cove with a pebble beach, sheltered from the northern wind. This beach is the perfect spot for snorkelling, scuba diving and canoeing. There’s also a picnic area with chairs and tables provided. Aucanada & Coll Baix beach are also great examples. The latter is a tad tricky to access but well worth the trek. Sunbathing might seem like a waste to some but it can be perfect to just soak up a few rays with a light lunch and then head on to see what else is on offer.
Plenty of History throughout Alcudia
In Alcúdia the old town is well preserved with houses dating back to the 13th century. The old town is surrounded by medieval walls that you can walk atop. This is free and you get fantastic views overlooking the old town of Alcudia and the Bay of Pollensa and there are several historical features located throughout including a bull ring and roman ruins. One of the oldest markets in Majorca takes place on Sundays and Tuesdays in the old town and will provide you with a taste of Mallorcan produce from fruit, veg, clothing, wine, etc, and is great for picking up some Hierbas, also known as herbes. This is a local liqueur produced using fennel and other herbs and spices. The drink is a very good digestive, but it can be quite strong. Hierbas has a flavour similar to Pernod or Ouzo with that distinct aniseed taste.
Have fun at the local Water Park
If you and the family are looking to cool off away from the beaches then a great idea is to visit the Hidropark.

Prices are around 24€ adults and 17€ for children and 60+ retirees.
