Best beaches near Alcúdia
The north of Majorca is famous for some of its enviable virgin beaches that can only be reached by foot or hiking. Booking accommodation in Alcudia, Mallorca means that you can make the most of these natural beauties that are scattered along the coastline as most are less than 30 minutes drive away. Alternatively, we have compiled a list of the more popular, easy-to-reach beaches and also a selection of the lesser known treasures for you to explore.
- Alcúdia Beach: A fine grained sandy beach with jetties for touristic passengers, but this is not a place for anchoring boats. It is often crowded with visitors and tourists and is only 2km from the centre of Alcúdia.
- Sant Joan Beach: A great beach for relaxing and for families. There are various amenities such as toilets, lifeguards and sun loungers available. It is great for swimming and a nice place to relax. We recommend that at the weekend you should arrive early to get a space. It is between rocky banks and has luscious green hills surrounding it. It is a nice alternative to the larger beaches and is normally always frequented by locals.
- Can Capdebou: A rocky beach which is often popular with anglers and surfers. It has a grey sand which is often found intermingled with seaweed; typical of Majorca. The winds that come from the Tramuntana mountain range play a massive role in making this beach a great location for windsurfing and kitesurfing.
- Cala Poncet: A small and charming cove which covers around 80 m of sand and pebbles. It is an intimate beach which is great for families. It has lovely views across to the Bay of Alcudia and Cap de Farrutx. It is fairly shallow and so good for children and can be accessed fairly easily.
- S’Illot: This beach is named after the small islet in front of it. Its structure means that it is protected significantly from the winds of the Tramuntana mountain range, and is therefore great for water sports that require calmer waters such as scuba diving, canoeing and snorkeling. It has a gorgeous green seabed and is easy to reach and park your cars.
- Platja de Coll Baix: A wildly natural beach which is surrounded by mountains. It is not the easiest to reach and requires some hiking through pine trees. You’ll find the water is a gorgeous turquoise and deepens quite quickly, so it is perfect for anchoring boats.
- Ses Caletes: A set of coves located in the Cabo Pinar, and can only be accessed by sea or with special permission. They are idyllic, green and blue and some of them include Sa Caleta des Capita and Sa Platgeta.
