The resort of Alcudia starts from the seaside town of Puerto Alcudia and stretches 7 km along the fine white sand beach of Bay of Alcudia called Bahia de Alcudia. The end further away from the town is referred to as Playa de Muro and due to the distance from the town, it is practically a different resort. The beach continues on past Playa de Muro all the way from Puerto Alcudia to Can Picafort stretching for over 10 km in total. This fine white sand beach stretching into the horizon is the main attraction of this resort and attracts thousands of tourists each year. Thus, this resort is mainly for those who wish to sunbathe on the beautiful beach, but thanks to the frequent wind in the Bay of Alcudia, the resort also offers windsurfing and kitesurfing, making the resort appealing to sportive tourists also.
The resort of Alcudia is actually called Puerto Alcudia and Alcudia itself is a small medieval town approximately 1.5 km Northwest from Puerto Alcudia centrum, which tourists often refer to as Alcudia old town. This town provides a cultural experience in contrast to the beachside resort with its old fortified walls and next to the town lie old roman ruins.
