9 Best Things to do in Playa de Muro: 

Playa de Muro is a very popular resort in the bay of Alcudia, and a very popular destination for holidaymakers coming to Mallorca. Its fabulous setting on the main Alcudia Beach makes it a great destination for families, couples and groups. You will find tons of things to do around the Playa de Muro area itself, as well as easy ways of getting to attractions further away.

Book a Boat Trip

The bay of Alcudia, where Playa de Muro lies, is a perfect place for activities related to the sea. Our first suggestion is a boat or catamaran trip. The bay of Alcudia is the biggest bay in Mallorca, and from the pier in Playa de Muro we have some great options for boat trips: a boat trip to Formentor Beach, a speed boat, a scenic cruise to Formentor lighthouse…

For those who prefer a catamaran trip, the Anacaona catamaran offers a great value for money catamaran tour with 3 snorkelling stops, activities such as kayaking and stand up paddle and a delicious lunch with drinks. This catamaran trip departs from Port de Alcudia, but clients from Playa de Muro have a free shuttle ferry to join the tour. Other options for boat and catamaran trips are from Port de Pollensa, and these tours include pick up by the hotels in the Playa de Muro.

If you are looking for something different to do from Playa de Muro, we recommend you a dolphin-watching boat trip. This trip is very popular and it combines the sunrise and dolphin spotting, so you can see dolphins swimming in wild in the waters of the Bay of Alcudia. A well worth excursion!

A great way to see the resort is the open top bus tour that runs daily and does a tour in the resort, the port of Alcudia and the old town with live commentary. This open top bus tour has a stop close to Playa de Muro by the hotel Eden Alcudia, and it runs 3 times a day in summer.

Enjoy a family day at the water park

In Mallorca there are only 3 water parks, and one of them is situated in the resort of Port de Alcudia. It is the Hidropark, and despite being the smallest water park in Mallorca, it offers a great variety of water slides, a wave pool and many areas for children. You can easily get there by taxi or by local bus.

Other water parks in Mallorca are situated in the south area of the island, and these are the Aqualand Arenal (the biggest water park with some of the best water slides) and the Western Water Park (a theme style water park with lots of water slides and a great choice to spend a day in the water). To both of them, we organise bus tours that include pick up at the hotels in Port Alcudia and the entrance to the water park.

Relax at Playa de Muro Beach

The beach in Playa de Muro is fantastic. It is a long wide sandy beach and the sea is not very deep. There are many things to do there: to relax sunbathing, to swim in its crystal waters, to take the 2 hours glass bottom boat or to do a jet ski tour, amongst other water activities.

Or you can just spend the day relaxing on one of the sunbeds, getting in and out of the water as you please, building sand castles or making the huge effort to stroll to one of the beach bars for a snack or cocktail!

Treat yourself to a nice meal at one of the top restaurants

Playa de Muro has a wide range of restaurants and places to eat out. Being a touristic resort, there is always something for everybody, from local cuisine to international cuisine or fast food. If you like meat, Boy restaurant is the best place to go, with fantastic service and many choices for meat lovers. If you want something special, go to Fusion19 where they have a gastronomic tasting course menu that can be accompanied by wine pairing. Also Figueret Restaurant is another good choice, serving hearty dishes of home cooked Mallorcan food in a pretty setting.

Take the bus to visit Alcudia Old Town

Alcudia Old Town can be easily visited from Playa de Muro by public bus that runs every 20 minutes and has many stops on the main road or by taxi. In Alcudia old town there are many things to do and to visit. Take a stroll around the old streets and walk on top of the Medieval walls. Visit the church of Sant Jaume, Alcudia's main church. Or step back in time to the Roman era as you visit the ruins of Pollentia, Mallorca's ancient capital. After your sightseeing, relax in the main square where you will find a concentration of nice restaurants bars and ice creeam parlours.

Every Tuesday and Sunday Alcudia has a local street market which takes place from 9:00 until 14:00 in the old town.

A walk in the Albufera Natural Park

A very interesting day trip for those who love walking and nature is to the Albufera nature park area. S’Albufera is the largest and most important wetland area in the Balearics, is a former lagoon separated from the sea by a belt of dunes, which for many centuries – but especially in the last two as a result of human influence – has filled up with sediments converting it into an extensive flood plain. The Natural Park affords protection to some 1708 hectares of marshes and dunes.

You can visit the Albufera Natural Park and follow one of the many trails, learn about the different species that inhabitat the area and do a spot of bird watching from one of the hides, which is especially popular in spring and autumn when migratory birds drop in on their way to or from the continent of Africa.

Go crazy on a nightlife tour

Playa de Muro is not famous for its nightlife or for being a disco resort, so if you are in a party mood you might have to head a bit further away. That's why it's a good idea to take a tour. That way you don't have to worry about geting there and back and don't have to worry about drinking too much! If you are looking for a great night out in the party resort of Magalluf, an option is to join the Magalluf Party bus that runs every week in high season, leaving Playa de Muro at around 20:00 and getting back at around 06:00. If you scene is Arenal, then don't miss the Ballermann Party Bus for a fantastic night out at all the best biergartens and German-style nightclubs.

If you don't want to do the full-blown nightlife bus tour and prefer to stay more local, you can visit the resort of Port de Alcudia where you find the Magic Disco Complex, Menta Disco, the Enjoy Pub and the area around the marina in the port.

Enjoy water activities

Apart from boat trips, there is a lot going on at Playa de Muro Beach and you can take full advantage of the water activities available. Have you ever been parasailing? On a banana boat? Flyboarding? Kayaking? Stand-up-paddle boarding? Well now's your chance because all these cool water sports are available in Playa de Muro and you just have to turn up at the beach and see what activities you fancy most. For families, parasailing and banana boat are the top picks. But everything on offer will give a thrilling adrenaline rush to anyone trying for the first time. 

You can also do a jet ski tour if you want but you have to go to the Port of Alcudia for this and you must book in advance as these are very popular. There are jet ski tours of from 30 minutes to three hour tours. The most popular jet ski excursion is the one that takes you to Es Coll Baix cove and includes time for snorkelling.
