Platja d'Alcúdia is situated at three kilometres from the centre of the village that gives the name to it, between Platja de Muro, on the south, and Xara, on the north, a small beach next to the marina Alcudiamar. It is the stretch of the bay of Alcúdia next to the villages Lago Esperanza and Playas de Alcudia. You are recommended to visit the ruins and the Roman theatre of Pollentia (“power” in latin), a village founded in the 2nd century B.C.
This very long fine-grained sandy area has gentle slope and along the coastline you will see some breakwaters and jetties for the touristic passenger launches, as well as numerous channels that come from the lakes at the rear of the coast. Nevertheless, Alcúdia is also known as “City of the lakes”. The seaweed ground make this coast a bad place for anchoring boats. The geographic and morphological descriptions explain that this is one of the biggest residential and touristic areas of Majorca. The activity of these touristic buildings take place on the coastline of this sandy area and this is why it is very crowded by local visitors and tourists.
The accessibility by car is easy following the signs. The private car can be left on a free parking area next to this enormous coastal stretch or in the streets of the surroundings. You can also reach this beach with the public transport. The nearest bus stop is located at half a hectometre.
When the beach has a lifeguard service, you must follow the lifeguards? instructions and the warnings on flags. A red flag indicates dangerous swimming conditions and means that swimming is not permitted. A yellow flag indicates that precaution must be taken, but that swimming is permitted. A green flag indicates that swimming is permitted. An orange flag is used to indicate that the lifeguard is absent. Act cautiously when no lifeguard is present or the service is not available and enjoy the beach without taking any unnecessary risks.
For health and safety reasons, the municipal ordinances ban pets on beaches.
