The beach in Alcudia, one of the most popular attractions in the north of Mallorca, is 35 kilometres long. It’s considered one of the best in Spain, because of its fine and white sand and turquoise water.

Puerto Pollensa Bay

The water is totally clean and turquoise and the beach has fine and white sand. The views from the beach are really pretty. We can see the lighthouse called “Punta de la Avanzada”, located in a privately owned fortress called La Fortaleza. The fort is believed to be Spain’s most expensive property. Rafa Nadal got married with his girlfriend Xisca Perelló in this place last summer.

There are many little beaches to enjoy sunshine in Puerto Pollensa. They are very charming, some next to the restaurants, so you can enjoy delicious coctails and admire the sea. This is also one of the best spots to try paddle board.
Our experts recommend also a walk through the promenade and at the end of it you can find nice, little, sandy and very peaceful beach named Pollensa Beach.
This small beach is one of the most beautiful and popular ones in Mallorca.
The views are amazing. The water is clean and turquoise and it has a really beautiful clean colour. It can get a little busy in summer, because everyone wants to visit it. It’s about one kilometre long and there is a pine forest which means that the trees provide a little bit of shade in the hot summer days.
One of the best ways to get there is by boat from Port Alcudia. We recommend you to book a 4 hour boat with a stop of 1 hour free time in this beautiful beach. Check this link if you are interested: https://www.nofrills-excursions.com/excursions/boat-trip-to-formentor/

You will have a 1 hour break at the beach and there is a little boat trip from Formentor beach to Puerto Pollensa included.

Cala Sant Vicenç
Cala Sant Vicenç is located about 7km from Pollensa. There are 4 different beaches there. All of them have white sand and clear and turquoise water.
The views from there are stunning, as you can see Formentor. Cala Barques and Cala Molins have easiest access, lifeguard services and facilities, but beaches that are easy to access are normally more crowded. You can also do some water activities here such as snorkelling, kayaking… And there are restaurants and bars close, if you want to have lunch or dinner after the beach day
Choosing this direction our experts recommend to combine the visit in Cala San Vicente with Cala Castell, another amazing place nearby. After short hike you can enjoy another little, non tourists, crystal blue waters beach.
If you are more interested in a beach without sand where you can do some snorkelling, Aucanada in the Bay of Alcudia, is very nice and quiet. There are a lot of small coves where you can leave your things. Make sure you have some beach shoes, as it’s a beach with rocks and pebbles and it may hurt you when you go inside the water without them.
The water is very clean and there are a lot of different fishes, which makes this beach perfect for snorkelling.
It’s a beautiful wild beach located in La Victoria, a few kilometres from Port Alcudia. This beach feels not touristic as there are no sunbeds, parasols, showers or lifeguards.
There are not buildings, restaurants or facilities along its coast, so if you want to spend a whole day there you, should take some food and water and drinks with you. There is a picnic area near the beach with tables where you can eat your snacks or lunch. The water is crystalline and the colour is really beautiful, as there are stones and pebbles in the bottom of the sea instead of sand. We recommend you to bring beach shoes as you have to walk on the stones to get in the water and it may hurt you if walk without them.
Es Coll Baix is a beautiful beach, one of the most beautiful ones on the island. It’s not easy to get there, as you have to walk for kilometres along a pine tree forest. The walk is worthy, when you approach the beach you can see what is waiting for you at the end of the walk: a wild 250 metres beach surrounded by mountains. The sand is pretty and white, and the water is really clean and beautiful, but it depens very quickly so be careful if you go there with kids.
Sa Marina is a quiet beach located less than a kilometre away from Alcúdia old town. It’s about 400 metres long and its colour is a little bit darker than the beaches we are used to see in the north area of Mallorca. This colour is because of the Posidonia, a typical seaweed from Mallorca and the Mediterranean sea.
The water is clear and not very deep, so it’s a family friendly beach where you don’t need to be afraid of the kids going very deep in the water.
This area is perfect to do some water sports such as kite surf and wind surf, as the wind is quite strong here.
This small beach is only 100 metres long and it’s located near the residential area of Mal Pas in Alcudia. The sand is very fine and its child friendly but there is not a lot of space to play as it’s a very small beach. The views from the beach are beautiful, you can even see Formentor beach from there. There are not many facilities there, but there is a little toilet at the beach and a bar close to it.
The water is crystal clear and as the beach is protected against the wind, there are not many waves.
