We’ve gathered the best things to do in Alcudia for couples, whatever your holiday mood.

1. Relax on the beach

You can’t have a couples’ holiday in Majorca without spending at least a day – or several – enjoying the dreamy beaches. Alcudia beach is around ten kilometres of pristine, white sands and shallow, warm sea. It’s especially popular because of its Blue Flag rating and lifeguards and is backed by facilities. Just five minutes from Alcudia old town by car or taxi, Platja de Sa Font de Sant Joan and Platja de San Pere are two beautiful, local beaches with a quieter vibe. There’s a definite feeling of luxury in the small, sandy coves with their glorious, crystal-clear sea – perfect for snorkelling. You can also stay in the small, former-fishing village area and enjoy lunch or dinner at one of the several, fantastic seafood restaurants.

To eat near Platja de San Pere: Sa plageta des Mal Pas, Bodega del Sol, 5 Oceanos

Other amazing beaches: Puerto Pollenca, Cala Victoria

2. Hike to a secret beach

Couples with a spirit of adventure should make the hike to one of the more-secluded beaches in the Alcudia area. You can park along the Carrer de la Montana and hike along the Refugi del Coll Baix, through shaded, piney forest trails to reach the blissfully deserted Coll Baix beach. There aren’t any facilities, so you’ll want to pack a romantic picnic and plenty of drinks, but once you’re here, you may well have the secluded cove to yourselves. You could also walk to the Mirador de la Victoria viewpoint for exceptional views across to Pollença and out to sea, followed by a much-needed cool down in the sea at magical Cala Victoria.

Coll Baix: for parking follow Carrer de la Muntana

Cala Victoria: limited parking, but you can park at the mirador

3. Embrace the Adventure

One of the best things to do in Alcúdia for couples seeking adventure is to take to the water and try out a new sport. You can opt for a leisurely and romantic activity, like snorkelling, kayaking or paddleboarding, or get your heart racing and make some epic memories parasailing, jet-skiing and banana boating together. You could also head to Pollença Bay (just 5km away) to try kitesurfing, windsurfing and SUP. Thrill-seeking couples should book on caving, climbing or coasteering adventure tours. Coasteering is an unusual sport involving swimming, climbing, cliff-jumping and more and it’s a truly unique and fun activity. Active Alcudia runs 3–4-hour tours exploring the spectacular, rocky coastline, scrambling over rocks, swimming, snorkelling, and discovering incredible cliffs and sea caves (no diving). They even offer free hotel pick-up and drop-off in Alcudia and Port d’Alcudia. Karakorum Adventure in nearby Cala Ratjada also organises fun coasteering day trips in Mallorca (~€65).

Quad Fun Tours: 2 hrs, on-road, ~€110, 2 per quad bike.

Active Alcudia: 3– 4hrs, hotel drop-off/pick-up & equipment incl. €40.

4. Enjoy the food, drink and parties

Port d’Alcúdia is bustling day and night. Couples might enjoy a sojourn along the sunny harbour, with lunch in a waterside restaurant or cafe for a view over the boats at anchor. The beach area is home to the town’s Michelin-star eatery Maca de Castro as well as several upscale restaurants and beach clubs for an exclusive-feeling dinner date. Party-loving couples can find nightclubs and bars to dance the night away at the seaside strip just behind the beach, as well as pubs like ever-popular O’Malleys and Prince of Wales. It doesn’t have the famous reputation of Majorca’s biggest party destinations – Magaluf and Palma Nova – but there’s nightlife to suit everyone in Alcudia.

Eat with a view: Pippers, Restaurant La Terraza, Ponderosa Beach

Party all night: Bell’s Disco & Club, Banana Club

5. Explore local old towns

A break in Majorca is not complete without exploring the picture-perfect architecture of at least one of the old towns. Alcúdia Old Town is a charming car-free maze of cobbles, packed with quaint buildings framed by bougainvillea and brimming with restaurants and local shops. You could also head to pretty Pollenca town and climb the romantic Calvari steps for a sunset view like no other. If you fancy a road trip, Soller, Port de Soller and Fornalutx – once voted Spain’s prettiest town – are just over an hour away. You might like to take in all three in one day, each of them as quaint and romantic as the next. Soller has a charming vintage tram too. We recommend taking the slightly slower road to get there, the Ma-10, winding through mountain passes and affording you some of the most stunning views on the island.

Pollenca: ~20 min drive, 322 bus ~25 mins

Fornalutx: ~1hr drive, ~1hr 20 mins on the scenic road

6. Discover the Formentor peninsula

Take a romantic road trip at least once on your Alcudia holiday and head for the captivating Formentor peninsula. You can book a coach or, for maximum flexibility, you can hire a car and drive yourself, stopping at the best points. You could also cycle if you love an active break. The stunning Ma-2210 coastal road leads you up past the Es Colomer viewpoint –for a fantastic vista of the dragon’s back peninsula – and on down the pine-studded hillside and towards Formentor beach. Continue along the Carrer Zona Formentor, with pitstops at the almost-secret-beaches of Cala Figuera and Cala Murta. Then, the sweeping road curves onwards until you reach the lighthouse on Cap Formentor for a photo finish.

Lighthouse facilities: Benches & viewpoint, toilets, café

Total: ~46 min drive (no stops), 334 bus ~1hr (no stops)

7. Take a sunset boat trip

What could be more romantic than watching the sun sink below the horizon as you cruise along Majorca’s stunning north coast? In Port d’Alcudia there are myriad options for boat tours, as well as some charter companies if you feel like pushing the boat out. Alcudia Sea Explorer and NoFrills Excursions offer tours of the marine nature reserve, Formentor beach and the lighthouse, as well as sunset tours and a sunrise version if you’re morning people. The most popular boat tours for couples in Alcudia are the dolphin-watching tours (~ €65/70pp). If you want to travel further afield, make a daytrip to Magaluf or Palma Nova and enjoy one of the best-loved speedboat trips on the island – Bladerunner. The tour takes in secluded coves and offers paddleboarding, snorkelling and underwater scooters (€70pp).

Alcudia Sea Explorer: Sunrise + dolphins €65, Formentor €60.

NoFrills Excursions: Catamaran €61, dolphin watching €54, cave + snorkel €43.

8. Enjoy a Wine Tasting

One of the most popular things to do near Alcudia for couples is a wine-tasting experience. Wine Tasting Mallorca is a popular company based in the centre of historic Pollenca. The companies offers a tasting of five local wines, accompanied by local delicacies, on the rooftop terrace or at your premises. Alternatively, you can go direct to a bodega or local winery. Bodegas Can Vidalet is nestled in a valley between Alcudia and Pollenca, surrounded by breath-taking hills and mountains. Here, you can opt for a vineyard tour with wine tasting and tapas, or simply a tasting and tapas in the beautiful setting. Closer to Palma (about 30 minutes from Alcudia), Mallorca Wine Tours offer various day tours like the Finca experience and wine tasting with a Flamenco show, or a tour covering two long-established wineries, travelling between them a vintage train through the wine fields.
