On arrival at Alcudia is certainly worth visiting the Albufera Natural Park (S’Albufera) to the deep sea, which is located on the Playa de Muro. This park has become a real haven for birds. Entrance to the park free, parking for cars. In the park you can walk on foot or on a rented bike, which will cost about 5-6 euros per day. But what about the family resort without the water park? One should visit the Alcudia water park with lots of slides, pools and other entertainment for the whole family. The old town of Alcudia is located slightly inland at 3.5 km. However, this city is worth a visit: some parts of it appeared here in the 13th century. The first native settlers were the Phoenicians and the Greeks, after which in the second century BC the island came the Romans, who made it the capital of Alcudia. The old town of Alcudia tourists enter through one of two gates built here together with the massive city walls after the conquest of the island Aragonese King Jaime I.
