Discover Port de Alcúdia with Ponderosa Beach
Located on the north coast of Mallorca you’ll find the Bay of Alcudia, a coastline comprising from the Port de Alcudia, in the west, to Can Picafort. Port de Alcudia was once just a fishing harbor, but has become one of Mallorca’s biggest resorts: there is a pedestrian promenade that runs along the coastline, an upmarket marina where fishing boats and luxury leisure yachts can be seen and a wide selection of bars, restaurants and shops all along the waterfront.
Most of the hotels, bars, restaurants and shops are open in the summer season – from April to October, as this is mainly a tourist resort. But you can always see the port, walk along its promenade and then go visit Alcudia, a few kilometers inland: a beautiful Medieval town with city walls and Roman ruins.
Without a doubt, the beach of Alcudia is the main attraction at the port: 7km of soft, golden sand and crystal clear water. Facillities are available: parasols and sun loungers can be hired. And there’s a wide range of water sports to practice too! The popular pedaloes can be found along the coastline, in addition to banana boats, parasailing and water skiing and can be hired by the hour. If you’re up to for something even more exciting, kayaking, canoeing and SUP paddle boarding are also available with various companies. Due to the wind conditions of the Northern part of the island (it’s the windiest part of Mallorca), windsurfing and kite surfing are also available in this area.
