Alcudia, a town northeast of Mallorca, is a privileged setting for nature lovers, with 30 km of coastline of great diversity of landscapes.
Alcudia is today one of the most appreciated towns of Mallorca. It enjoys a privileged geographic location: situated in the northeast of Mallorca, 54 km from Palma, is nestled on a peninsula that separates the bays of Alcudia and Pollensa. In his more than 30 km of coastline you can find beautiful sandy beaches, rugged cliffs and incredible cristal clear coves of great beauty.
This heavenly place did not go unnoticed by the cultures that have inhabited this corner a long time ago and whose legacy can be seen today. The Alcudia of today is a peaceful place, equipped with the most modern infrastructure,inhabited by very diverse people that make a peaceful setting, ideal for relaxation.
The historical town of Alcudia is the heart of the borough of Alcudia. Within the medieval city walls many have been living for centuries and is still one of the cores with highest density of population. It is true that walled Alcudia is now too small to accommodate the population growth and the successive migrations that have increased with the development of tourism from the 70′s. Alcudia has therefore expanded its borders. The town has been gradually converting farming land outside the walls in living areas able to accommodate the increased population.
The Northern District comprises the areas of Son Fe, La Marina, Manresa, Mal Pas and Bonaire, where 1,100 people live.
Its terrain is diverse. For example Son Fe is located on the road from Palma to Alcudia. Traditionally a village of farmers that now has become a valley of residential houses.
Manresa however is located near Alcudia town, washed by the waters of the bay of Pollensa.
Not far away is Mal Pas, also on the North coast of Alcudia. Its origin is recent and dates back to decades. A place where rich people of Palma built their second homes. Today the inhabitants of this peaceful and beautiful area are more mixed, due to the increase of foreign tourists (mainly English and German) that have choosed this place as their summer residence. The marina of Bonaire or “the Crocodile” has given even more status to the area.
