Playa de Muro - Majorca Hotels

Mini guide to Playa de Muro - Majorca

     

Playa de Muro and its more popular neighbour, Alcudia, are situated in the north of Majorca, along a long curving bay with an endless white sandy beach. The major attraction here is this spectacular beach, although Playa de Muro is also well placed for exploring the attractions around the north of the island.

The main draw of Playa de Muro is the wondrous eight kilometres of beach which fronts the resort. It is here that most activity takes place, from scuba diving to banana boat rides. There are also tennis and squash courts in the resort, and nearby attractions include a water park, a go-kart track and horseback riding stables.

Walking enthusiasts should head to nearby Alaro to try out the most popular hiking trail in Majorca. This walk begins in the town of Alaro and winds upwards to a ruined castle and chapel atop a hill. It takes about two hours to traipse from the town to the 15th century ruins.

Playa de Muro has an upmarket shopping mall with some nice boutiques, and its port area has a selection of designer shops. For crafts and local produce, visit the market in Inca, 24kms inland. Restaurants range from fast-food tourist spots to upmarket Spanish and French eateries in the port area. Nightlife is plentiful but not as raucous as that of other resorts on the island.

Nearby, the old town of Alcudia (as opposed to the resort of the same name) has a long and turbulent history. It has been in the possession of Romans, Vandals, Moors and the Spanish, who built the huge 12th century city walls. Among the town's many attractions are: a Roman amphitheatre, the ancient church of Orator de Santa Anna, and the narrow medieval streets which radiate out from the original fortified city gates.

Visitors arrive at Son Sant Joan International Airport, eight kilometres from Palma. From here, buses run into Palma and shuttles depart for Playa de Muro. Most resorts around the island also run their own shuttles. Ferries run daily from Barcelona and Valencia, arriving in Palma.
