The mediaeval walled town of Alcúdia is situated one kilometre away from its eponymous port, Puerto de Alcúdia, built inland to prevent potential pirate attacks. Steeped in history, this traditional stone settlement in one of the northernmost points on the island sits in the foothills of the Tramuntana mountains, which makes for spectacular scenery and an otherworldly feel. Despite its romantic remoteness, there is plenty to do here: cultural attractions, gastronomic experiences, plus sporting activities, including hiking, cycling, and kitesurfing.
