Alcudia, located on the northern coast of Mallorca (Spain), combines Mediterranean beaches with historic settlements dating to the Roman, Moorish and Spanish conquerors. While most ships will call on Palma de Mallorca when visiting the Spanish island, some smaller vessels will visit Alcudia as an alternative port.
On arrival, you'll be struck by the Miami-like beachfront hotels and yacht harbors, set against a more Mediterranean backdrop of sparsely covered, craggy hills. The walled town of Alcudia and the neighboring Roman ruins of Pollentia are a short bus drive from the port.
Admire the 14th-century wall and yellow buildings, shimmering in the sun, as you stroll the narrow streets. Be sure to peer around intriguing corners, browse the shops of light cotton dresses and local salts, and stop for a sangria at one of the open-fronted cafes in the central square.
