Welcome to Puerto Alcudia

Mallorca is the largest of the Balearic Islands and boasts holiday resorts for all tastes. Families love the bustling resorts of Alcúdia, Puerto Pollensa and Cala d’Or. The Mallorcan coast offers so many different beaches from the long, golden sands of the Bay of Alcúdia to the hundreds of small coves (“calas”) with sandy beaches and turquoise waters. Away from the coast are pine forests covering large green mountains. The cosmopolitan city of Palma is great for shopping plus cafes, bars and restaurants.

Information & Facts

Activities

As you´d expect from an island, most activities are based on water. Yachting, scuba diving, snorkelling and other water sports are available in almost all resorts. Most of the island is generally flat so cycling is an easy, healthy way to explore, particularly popular in winter months when many professional cyclists train here. Generally mild winters mean the island is a magnet for golf enthusiasts from northern Europe. The S’Albufera wetlands are a major stopover for migrating birds and attract many keen birdwatchers.

Climate

Mallorca enjoys a typical Mediterranean climate with over 300 days of sunshine. Summer months of July and August can see temperatures reach 35°C but average around 30°C. Sunshine hours range from 6 hours in winter to almost 12 hours in summer. The Tramuntuna Mountains shelter most of the island resulting in generally mild winters

Eating Out

If you´re starting off your day in a Mallorcan café, be sure to order an “ensaimada” which is a local sweet pastry fashioned into a round, coiled shape. All around the island cafes and restaurants will serve “pa amb oli” throughout the day. Basically this is the local Mallorcan bread drizzled with olive oil and tomato sauce then served with various toppings such as Manchego cheese and Serrano ham. Finish off your meal in any restaurant with a “hierbas”, an aniseed-flavour liqueur infused with local herbs.

Getting Around

Frequent buses connect all the major towns of Mallorca with the island’s capital Palma de Mallorca. Luckily, extra buses run in the summer months. An inland train travels through green fields and farmlands from Inca to Palma

Kids Attractions

Few islands are better suited to keep kids amused and entertained than Mallorca. You can choose from four different waterparks dotted around the island in Alcúdia, Calvià and Arenal. The dolphin and sea lion shows at Marineland are a “must see”. Play cowboys and cowgirls at Rancho Grande with horse riding and wagon rides through the countryside. Mallorca´s world famous Pirates summer show is swashbuckling fun for kids of all ages.
