Platja de Muro -Sector I

Platja de Muro – Sector 1 is situated at three kilometres from the centre of Port d'Alcúdia, and at 15 kilometres from the centre of Muro, between the breakwater of s'Oberta del Parc Natural de s'Albufera, (which can be visited for free) and the natural border toward Platja d'Alcúdia, which is the prolongation of it. We have to say that the general name Platja de Muro is used for the 5,2 kilometres of coastline which belong to the municipality with the same name. This quiet beach with fine-grained sand and which is not very deep for the relief of the parents and the tourist who crowd this place. You have to walk quite a lot before the water gets deeper. At the rear you will find the system of dunes and the different trails, with some pine trees and juniper woods, as well as the development of villages and hotels, a quality tourism with good hotels, most of the visitors are families. The extensive sandy grounds, the very gentle slope the presence of sandbanks and the fact that it is open to the winds of the first quadrant explain that running aground is possible. This is why the navigator should stay away from the coast. The water is transparent, the swell is moderate or quiet, the sand is fine-grained and golden, ideal for all types of visitors.

The accessibility by car is easy following the signs. The private car can be left for free in the streets that take to this beach. The nearest bus stop is located at about a hundred metres from this beach if you chose the public transport.

Municipality information Muro

The municipality of Muro is situated in the northeast of Majorca, and the name is given by the Latin and mozarab word murus –which means wall-. King Jaume II promoted in 1330 the concentration of inhabitants in this area.

Its flat landscape (Turons de Sant Jeroni, 129 metres high) has a coastal area, wetland, l'Albufera Gran, as well as irrigated and unirrigated agricultural land, irrigated by Torrent de Muro or Vinagrella. Cane, orchids, marine iris, marine thistle, pine trees and others are the kind of vegetation that populates this territory.

L'Albufera Gran (2.584 hectares and 32 kilometres of perimeter) has an enormous ecological importance (230 species of birds), as well as subsistence (hunting and fishing) and historical (the Roman bridge of Pol.lentia used to be in Estany des Ponts). In 1988 it was declared the first official natural reserve by the Govern de les Illes Balears.

Muro and sa Pobla are the majorcan villages that are best known for their agriculture, although the tourism began to lead the economy of the municipality in the sixties of the 20th century, replacing the agricultural activity and the extraction of sandstone, which used to be the dominating activities.

Its cultural variety includes the 48 arqueological sites. You should visit Ca na Cotxera (talaiotic village), Església Parroquial de Sant Joan Baptista, Esglesieta de la Sang, Convent de Santa Anna, where there is still a small procession organ, Pont de Morell, Possessió de Son Perera Vell and Plaça de Toros, in a former marès quarry.
The municipality has 4 beaches.
