History, culture and leisure
Puerto de Alcudia
Situated only 10 minutes from our hotel, the Port d’Alcúdia is the largest tourist area on the north coast, where you will find a wide range of restaurants, bars and shops, as well as the marina and the island’s second biggest commercial port.
The marina, Alcudiamar, is an important area for Majorca thanks to its connections such as the ferry to Menorca. It is ideal for all types of trips, sports, recreations and fishing. In addition, the views of the Sierra and Alcudia Bay makes this port a unique location.
Historical centre and fortified city
One of the must-see visits is the old town of Alcudia with its impressive medieval walls and its long, picturesque streets. One of the attractions of the medieval wall is its impressive access doors, like the Porta des Moll, that still has its original drawbridge railings.
Some of the old houses built within the walls date back to the 16th and 18th centuries, and over time many of them have been transformed into shops, bars, and restaurants… charming places to sit and simply enjoy the views.
The Albufera de Alcudia Natural Park
With an area of more than 1600 hectares, the Albufera de Majorca is the largest and most important wetland of the Balearic Islands. It spans the municipal territories of Muro and Sa Pobla and was declared a Natural Park in 1988.
It is also a Special Bird Protection Area, an enjoyable and recommended visit for families with children thanks to its bird observatory. We recommend visiting here with a bike as it is quite vast.
Hidropark is a huge water park situated in an exclusive area of Puerto de Alcudia. It has an area of more than 40,000 metres and a wide range of water attractions for all ages, from slides and wave pools for adults, to the minipark and water areas for the little ones. It also has a large food and barbecue area.
Enjoy the day with your partner or family in this famous aqua park, only a few kilometres from our hotel.
