North (Costa Nord)
The towns and ports of the north of Mallorca wrap around the Bay of Alcúdia. From the Port of Pollensa to Can Picafort, this is a wonderful vacation spot, especially for families. The beaches of the north are exceptional, the beach of Muro in particular is perfect for kids with clean, shallow, transparent water.
The magnificent views of the bay are complemented by the dramatic backdrop of the Sierra de Tramuntana. Kitesurfers lifted high by the bay winds can often be seen between theport and the medieval town of Alcúdia. Every Tuesday and Sunday morning is market day when the narrow pedestrian streets of Alcúdia are filled with stalls and open-air restaurants.
Pollentia, the capital of the Balearic Islands during Roman times, is located across from the medieval walls that encircle Alcúdia and is one of the most important archaelogical sites on Mallorca.
The Natural Park of S'Albufera, located in the municipality of Muro and Sa Pobla, is the most extensive wetland of the Balearic Islands. Home to 200 bird species, fauna and other wildlife, the S'Albufera is an ideal place to explore by bicycle.
