Holidays to Playa de Muro take you to a brand-new resort with a Blue Flag beach, nature trails and lashings of child-friendly fun.
A secluded spot
Set on the northeast coast of Majorca, Playa de Muro started off as a secluded fishing village but sprang into action when neighbouring Alcudia was struggling to fit everyone in. It’s still a bit of an off-the-radar kind of place but now it comes in 2 parts – Las Gaviotas gets you a few lively pubs, while quieter Alcudia Pins is where you’ll find the beachfront restaurants.
Blue Flag beach
You get 5 kilometers of fine white sand here, flanked by a palm-lined prom. The beach divvies up into sections known as balneiros – whichever one you choose comes with its own lifeguard and a line-up of bars. Watersports are also in good supply – you can laze on a pedalo or take advantage of the cool breeze with some windsurfing action.
A family-friendly resort
Playa de Muro is a great spot for families. Pony rides, bouncy castles and amusement arcades are all on hand here. The resort also has a wooden maze – it’s about the size of a small footie pitch and comes with puzzles to solve. And just down the road at Ca’n Picafort there’s a go-karting track.
Day trips to Alcudia and Palma
Fifteen minutes by bus gets you to Alcudia. You’ve got options here. The old town with its cobbled streets and Moorish fort give you a taste of traditional Spain, or there’s the modern slides at Hidropark Waterpark to try out. If you want to strike out a bit further along the coast, you can be in the capital, Palma, in 90 minutes.
