7 fun things to do in Alcudia

Why is Alcudia such a child friendly holiday destination? Because it has everything, you could want and need for your whole family located in this beautiful Majorcan town, providing a safe and welcoming environment.

The white sandy beach of Playa d’Alcúdia is set in the northeast part of Mallorca, located in the medieval town of Alcúdia. With the extensive beach stretching almost 3.5 km, shallow waters and mountain scenery, there’s something for everyone, which is why it’s an ideal child friendly holiday destination for tourists and Marjocan residents alike.

Majorcan Beach Heaven

Playa d’Alcúdia is considered a Blue Flag beach. What is a blue flag beach, you may ask? It means this sunny stretch of sandy splendidness has been awarded the prestigious mark to show it’s one of the cleanest and safest beaches in the world.

This Majorcan blue flag beach also has lifeguards on duty to warn and assist when there are higher winds and waves; they also mark the condition of the water using flags. The beach is also segmented for safety, highlighting the different areas for swimming, activities and surfing.

Blue flag beaches go hand in hand with a child friendly holiday, so you can rest assured that Alcudia is the right choice for your summer holiday in 2022.

It also has excellent facilities including the all important showers, toilets and changing areas which every family needs during a day at the beach.

Of course, loungers and umbrellas are available to hire and help provide a comfortable base. You can lunch at one of the beach cafes and bars, which provide the perfect holiday fare, including sandwiches, burgers, hot dogs and chilled drinks.

There are lots of watersports to enjoy for every age of child, including paddle boats which are always a big hit with the whole family, all aboard.

Despite the size of Alcudia beach, the atmosphere is generally low key, and the water is mostly calm; these both make it an ideal child friendly holiday place to visit.

Beyond the boardwalk

The beach is flanked by a long boardwalk that has shaded areas and benches, making it ideal for pushchairs, small children to rest, and any disabled and elderly travellers in your party. The accessibility is one of the biggest pulls for families choosing to stay in the Majorcan town of Alcudia.

As well as a child’s playground (and outdoor gym equipment for the adults), there’s a whole host of shops, cafe’s, restaurants and bars waiting to welcome you.

The local tourist office is a good meeting point and somewhere of safety to point out should anyone ever lose their way.

Alcudia has its very own waterpark, which Club MAC has a special agreement with to provide everyone who stays with us FREE ENTRY to the Hidropark during your stay. This, alongside the pools and entertainment inside the Club MAC resort, means there is limitless fun to be had by the kids and the whole family.

There’s a whole host of restaurants and cafes in Alcudia which will satisfy even the most fussiest of eaters because of the sheer variety of international cuisine on offer is incredible.

As you can see, Alcudia has everything every family would want for a child friendly holiday, and we look forward to welcoming you to the Club MAC resort for your 2022 holiday in the Majorcan sun.
