Alcudia Car Hire

The walled town of Alcudia is situated to the north of the island of Mallorca and is served by Palma International Airport. It is in fact, the oldest settlement on the island, having originally been founded and occupied by the Phoenician traders and was later to become the Roman capital on the island during their occupation in the 1st and 2nd centuries B.C.

The town is just proud of its history and maintains a wealth of archaeological treasures that are well worth visiting. Like the rest of the island, the climate is suited to vacations at all times of the year, with the spring weather being particularly pleasant. For the holiday maker, the town has plenty of accommodation, narrow streets housing wonderful shops selling traditional products and best of all, boasts a magnificent 7 km of white sandy beaches that shelve gently down to the ocean and which are particularly safe for bathers. The beaches themselves are lined with thatched huts that provide shelter from the fierce summer sun and there are plenty of sun loungers for hire. The front has an excellent choice of bars and restaurants on offer.

Alcudia is more upmarket and family focussed than many Spanish resorts and the authorities seem to be actively discouraging the ‘lager and chips’ brigade – although fish and chips and ‘real’ English beer is available. Nightlife here is lively without being offensively riotous and uncomfortable. The harbour area, known as Porte D’Alcudia is a particularly attractive place, with some pleasant and unusual shops and superb seafood restaurants specialising in traditional Spanish cuisine. In addition, a gentle walk around the harbour, just to look at some of the magnificent yachts berthed in the marina is a pretty good way of spending an hour or two.
