Alcudia and the Port of Alcudia are neighbouring cities and could hardly be more different and yet they they complement each other in many ways that benefit holiday makers


During the day the narrow streets of the quaint medieval town of Alcudia are filled with many day-trippers who marvel at the heritage listed town with Roman and Moorish influences. The visitor get the impression of moving in a single stone open-air museum within the closed architecture of Alcudia. Particularly impressive are the massive fortifications some of the 13th centuries and are still passable. Another attraction outside the city is the Roman excavations of the city Pollentia, which was founded in 70 BC.

Port d'Alcudia

Quite different qualities of the coastal town of Port d'Alcudia, only a few kilometers away from Alcudia. Port d'Alcudia is neither historically valuable and doesn't posess the character of Alcudia town. The hotels and tourist attractions dominate the area especially in the southern part of town. Port d'Alcudia main advantage is the beautiful bay, which opens wide into sea. The beach is  ideal for families with children.

The two cities have almost opposite holiday worlds and if you are based in the  Port d'Alcudia Hotel it is definetly worth visiting the historic town of Alcudia. When booking your hotel it is worth noting that the hotels will say they are located in Alcudia when they are actually located at Port d'Alcudia
Ideally you should visit this Alcudia outside of the main holiday season as it can be very busy in the summer. For those with school-age children it best to travel in the spring or autumn.
