PLAYA DE MURO: THE LARGEST BEACH IN MALLORCA
The Valentin Playa de Muro Hotel is located on the largest sandy beach of Mallorca, more than 6 kilometers long, near the town of Muro and Port Alcudia on the island’s north coast. The Muro beaches are of white sand, some with dunes, and very visually attractive.
It’s a very popular beach with families because of its easy access, restaurants, facilities, playgrounds and activities for children, and very shallow waters where you can walk quite far out to sea before it get deeper. It’s the perfect beach for all ages.
DISCOVER PLAYA DE MURO
With a privileged location, Playa de Muro is surrounded by magnificent landscapes and towns with great history and tradition, such as the picturesque town of Santa Margalida (10 km away), Sa Pobla and its popular San Antonio festivities with more than six centuries of tradition, the port and town of Pollensa, synonymous with harmony and renowned for its prestigious classical music festival, the port of Alcudia, with a fishing background, and its medieval-style town, or the splendorous, steep, Cap de Formentor.
In the early seventies, it was a small fishing village of 200 inhabitants which has since become one of the main tourist areas of the island. Full of bars and restaurants, the promenade is ideal for enjoying good food and wine in a pleasant and relaxed atmosphere.
This is an old inland town with beautiful twisting streets and an impressive central square full of cafes, bars and restaurants, which is found very close to the hotel. The town has several places of interest for tourists, such as Pont Roma, its Roman bridge which is still in use, and Puig de Pollensa, a small mountain crowned with an ancient monastery, just outside the town.
The reserve contains the most important wetland in the Balearic Islands, formed from an ancient lagoon and separated from the sea by a series of dunes. Spectacular scenery where you can observe a large number of birds and marine wildlife.
The old town of Alcudia is a medieval gem in the north of Mallorca. The city grew out of the Roman settlement of Pollentia, the remains of which are located between the city and the port of Port d'Alcudia and have great visual appeal. The imposing city wall with its crenellated towers was completed in 1362, under the reign of Jaume II of Mallorca. Parts of it have survived to the present day, such as the city gates.
Cap de Formentor, or the 'meeting point of the winds' as the locals call it, is a picturesque peninsula featuring an ancient lighthouse, elevated walkways and a cave.
Perfect for a bike ride.
