    Alcudia has an impressive history as it was the Phoenicians and Greeks who first settled here but then it was the Romans who made it the capital in the 2nd Century. The old town emphasises this history with stunning scenery which is far away from the modern aspects of the resort. Tourism has of course been highly influential but the resort has managed to keep it's authencity even though it is a popular tourist destination.

    Nightlife

    There are a number of bars and restaurants on offer but this resort is mainly for those wanting a quiet and relaxing holiday in Alcudia. Have a meal at one of the finest restaurants serving local cuisine whilst watching the sun go down by the port or head to one of the fast food restaurants, then have a dance at a local disco.

    Evening entertainment is mainly hotel based but there are a number of bars and nightclubs for those not wanting to go to bed early. There is something for everyone in Alcudia, although if it is a night of clubbing that you want then you should head to Magalluf or Santa Ponsa where the parties start late and last through the night!

    A big part of Alcudia is the beaches. Alcudia's main beach is one of the finest on the island, and certainly the longest, stretching for 9 - 10 kilometres from the marina in Puerto Alcudia to Playa de Muro and Ca'n Picafort. If all you're interested in is lounging on the beach in the sun, Alcudia is for you. As well as the main beach, there are a dozen other fabulous stretches of sand to recline on and soak up the sun. Most hotels have swimming pools, too, if lounging by the pool with a cocktail is more your thing. Shopaholics will love the shops and boutiques, and the market held on Tuesday and Sunday mornings is definitely worth a visit. For the kids, Alcudia Hidropark will make an enjoyable day out with a number of slides and flumes and even a large wave pool.
