Manacor to Alcudia

The Manacor to Alcudia route begins in Manacor, Mallorca's second-largest city, best known as the birthplace of tennis great Rafael Nadal and as a centre of furniture manufacturing.

There’s not a lot to see here; however the Esglesia dels Delors de Nostra Senyora church is worth a visit, so is the Manacor History Museum.

When you leave Manacor, follow the signs for Porto Cristo where you have the opportunity to visit the Caves of Drach, one of the largest caves in Europe and considered by many to be the 8th Wonder of the World. Within the caves is Lake Martel, one of the largest underground lakes on the planet; which today plays host to a boat-borne classical music program; which attracts visitors from far and wide.

From Porto Cristo follow the signs for Son Servera and Cala Millor, a lovely road; which meanders through orchards until you arrive at Cala Millor; which is a good place to stop for a short beach break.

The route then takes you east into Son Servera and then to Capdepera, largely undiscovered by the majority of visitors to the island. The biggest attraction in Capdepera is the ‘Castell de Capdepera’, it is a quite demanding walk uphill but the views are outstanding.

From Capdepera, take the road to Artà, a quiet, attractive rural town with a maze of narrow streets, medieval buildings and pretty cafes with an impressive hilltop fortress built in the 14th century.

From there, continue along the coastal road around the bay to Alcúdia, a beautiful medieval walled town of quiet charm and character.

Surrounded by mighty walls that contain historic mansions, scenic plazas, cafés with beautiful terraces & warm-stone houses, this vibrant town is a year-round destination, providing a rich taste of history and culture.

The Manacor to Alcudia drive is an excellent way to spend a day taking you through some great locations and with some incredible views.

Nightlife in Port D’Alcudia

Nightlife in Port D’Alcudia is varied and ranges from quiet, chilled-out bars and Irish pubs to cosy restaurants.

For those seeking something a bit more lively, Alcudia is just 1 kilometre away and there you will find an assortment of music bars and clubs including the very popular Banana Club.

Before heading off to Alcudia to dance the night away at Bananas, the marina and beachfront area at Port d’Alcudia is the ideal place to begin your night out. You’ll find a good assortment of nightlife in Port d’Alcudia including restaurants catering for many different cuisines and lots of bars.

Popular bars include The Shamrock Bar, an Irish pub with live music at the weekends and a great atmosphere during the week and O’Malleys Irish pub; which is also a great venue. Prince of Wales is a well-known bar in the marina for both tourists and locals.

Bars in Alcudia that are worth a mention because they are usually very busy include Joker’s Irish Pub, Legends and Linekers Bar.

A nightlife hotspot in Alcudia is Pedro Mas Y Reus (otherwise known as Dollar Street); which is easily the busiest and most thriving place in Alcudia.

In this area you will find a few really good bars such as Shamrock, Mucky O’Marras, Goodfellas Music Bar and Apels Music Pub.

The Bananas Disco Complex is definitely worth a visit, it hosts some popular trendy bars and clubs such as Unik Disco and La Nit Music Bar.

The best club in Alcudia is Banana Club who throw more than 50 theme parties every summer, at least 2 every week and host Foam Paint Parties. There was a time when they used to make Foam Parties, then someone said: “Why don’t we mess this up a little more?”. And they threw paint in it. NEON paint. And TA-DAAAAA: Foam Paint parties were born.

Another popular club in the area is Menta, a disco with a laid-back, Spanish vibe, complete with 7 bars and its very own indoor swimming pool. Menta plays a mixture of Spanish club beats and the latest dance tracks and is ideal for the 18-30 crowd. The club was closed during the 2020 season and moved to Charly Disco, at Can Picafort. We are not sure whether it will return to Alcudia for the 2021 summer season.
