Where to stay
The weather in Alcudia is beginning to hot up and the crowds are slowly beginning to flock to the resort for their annual summer break. Because of this, it's important to book your accommodation ahead of time, not only to get the best price, but also to be sure you get your ideal choice. Bellevue Club is a very popular option. This is an apartment hotel with a large swimming pool and many dining options, including an on-site pizzeria, an English bar and an entertainment area with evening shows.
Lagotel Hotel is a good go-to for all inclusive, very close to the Old Town and the popular market, and close to the nearest beach, meaning you don't have too far to go for sightseeing and beach time.
Alternatively, Siesta I Apartments offer a comfortable self-catering base, with the option to upgrade to bed and breakfast or half board. These apartments are again close to everything and have many on-site entertainment options, such as live music.
What to do
For a fun, colourful, and rather nautical experience, visitors to Majorca should head to Palma during the first week of the month, and check out the Palma International Boat Show. This is not just any old boat show, as here you will see some seriously expensive sights, as well as being right in front of the beautiful cathedral, giving you a day with a serious view. This is a very popular time of the year, so do expect crowds in and around the city; it may be a good idea to head there a little earlier in the day as a result.
If you prefer to stay in and around Alcudia and experience the natural beauty of the underwater world, then Skualo Alcudia offer fantastic dive experiences for all abilities. Boats head out on a daily basis for experienced divers, with fantastic visibility, tunnels, steep walls, and caverns to explore. If you're not so au-fait with diving, there are discovery dives for beginners, with experienced instructors to help you along the way. A fun day out for the family could also involve a multi-activity trip, which incorporates a thrilling speedboat ride with a snorkelling experience.
Keeping with the wet and wild theme, What's Adventure have a challenge and a half for you – exploring sea caves, kayaking along the coast, trekking on land, snorkelling the underwater world, and a few water-based games to throw in for good measure. This is an active, exciting, and rather energetic experience, but a fun one all the same, with fantastic guides to show you the ropes and encourage you along.
If you prefer to stay on dry land however, why not hire an electric bicycle, or a push bike, and head off to enjoy the views from a rather dryer standpoint? Throw in some exercise, fantastic views, and perhaps stopping off at a few coffee shops along the way! The countryside and coastal views in and around Alcudia are stunning, so this is certainly a worthwhile activity to do during your visit, remembering your camera of course! All Cars Electric have some great value rental deals to check out.
Hit the beach
The beaches around Alcudia are beginning to get a little busier as May kicks in, and if you want to avoid the main stretch of beach in town, why not head over to Sant Joan and Sant Pere beaches. These two beaches open out towards the beautiful bay of Pollensa, around 2km from Alcudia itself. These are more secluded, wild, and seriously beautiful, giving you the perfect backdrop for a day's splashing and sun-worshipping.
Where to eat & drink
Trying some authentic food whilst you're away is always to be recommended, and you won't struggle to find some fantastic Spanish restaurants in Alcudia. The Wine Side is a particularly highly recommended restaurant to try, specialising particularly in seafood; this is a hidden gem to find. Alternatively, Jardin is very highly rated and the tasting menu allows you to try lots of different mini dishes, to get an overview of the cuisine of the area you're visiting.
Maybe you don't want a full evening meal, but you want to sip a few glasses of wine and nibble on some tapas, in which case Es Raco de Ronda is where you should be heading.
