Bahía de Alcudia, Mallorca
The bahía de Alcudia (Bay of Alcudia), located on the northwest coast of Mallorca, comprises more than 30 kilometers distributed between the municipalities of Artà, Muro, Santa Margalida and Alcudia. It represents a unique and unforgettable location to enjoy beautiful white sand beaches and crystal-clear water, where nature lovers will find an exceptional environment.
