Alcudia is a small and charming town where the Arab influence is strongly felt. It is surrounded by fortifications and definitely worth a visit. You can stroll around the fortifications and admire the two remarkably well-preserved gates.

Alcudia: what to do?

A walk along the top of the ramparts of Alcudia. Horse riding at the Rancho Grande near Alcudia. The boat trip from Puerto Pollensa port to the beautiful Formentor Beach is well worth it. You can also take the breathtakingly steep road across Cap de Formentor to the lighthouse for a view of the edge of the world: beware of vertigo as in some places the cliffs are 210m high with a sheer drop!

The ramparts of Alcudia, the Cap de Formentor, the Albufera Natural Park, the Lluc Monastery, the leather market in Inca, the picturesque market in Sineu (Wednesdays), the wine route: Petra, Llubi, Sa Pobla. The superb Morer Vermell Beach affords a magnificent view of Pollensa Bay, framed by Cap Pinar and Cap de Formentor.

  • A city rich in crafts and monuments.
  • The small roads that are both long and narrow.
  • The distance from the airport.
  • The difficulty finding parking in the city centre.


The little road that goes all the way to Cap de Formentor offers breathtaking views of the landscapes, but remember to be very careful if you're not used to driving in the mountains. Dizzying turns, sheer drops, narrow roads, lots of alert! Make sure you have enough petrol as well, as service stations are rare in the area!

To avoid

Getting around by car is not easy and it's difficult to find a parking space.
