Club MAC Alcudia nature

When you visit Club MAC Alcudia, you’ll find yourself presented with a one-in-a-lifetime chance to explore the unique nature of Alcudia!

Mediterranean climate

Here at Club MAC Alcudia, we count our blessings. We’re fortunate enough to be based in Alcudia; an ancient port town nestled on the North-East edge of sun-kissed Majorca.

Majorca is an island in the extreme west of the world-renowned Mediterranean Sea. This means that the tourist hotspot has an enviable Mediterranean climate, which allows it to serve as the home of some of the most fascinating flora and fauna in the world.

La Victòria

There are several natural areas you can visit when you arrive in Alcudia, if you’re looking to explore the wildlife of Majorca. Your first visit has to be La Victòria; a protected peninsula which includes Alcudia Bay!

Walk through La Victòria and you’ll find magnificent pine groves, wild olive trees and elegant cypress plantations. Whilst you’re walking you should keep your eyes peeled, and see if you can spot any of the elusive wildlife that call this peninsula home. If you’re especially observant, you may stumble on the osprey; a bird that’s close to extinction, or several species of falcon.

S´Albufereta (pictured above)

If you rent a car* and drive through Majorca for about 15 minutes, you’ll reach S´Albufereta; a coastal wetland that has evolved into one of the island’s biggest natural attractions. S’Albufereta’s amphibious nature allows it to support a wide variety of eye-catching plant and animal life.

Meander along the region’s enchanting steam, and you’ll pass marshlands and river woodlands which house aquatic plants such as saltwort bushes. If you’re lucky, you might spot a range of bird species such as marsh harriers, night herrons, collared pratincoles and whiskered terns, or even the extremely rare European turtle.

Puig de Sant Martí

Meanwhile, a five minute drive down the coast from Alcudia you’ll find Puig de San Martí. This is a mountainous protected area that features a host of natural attractions that need to be seen to be believed.

The mountainous make-up of the region gives it the ability to support a range of stunning plant life such as palmitos; a variety of small palm, and pine trees. We’d suggest you hike up to the Cova de Sant Martí; a 20 metre cave at the foot of the mountain, which hides two protected rare bat species in its mysterious dark depths.

Dream holiday 

When you stay at Club MAC Alcudia, you’ll find that you’re only a stone’s throw away from some of Majorca’s most fascinating natural attractions. This is just another reason why you and your family are set to have a dream holiday when you visit us.
