Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

My husband and I went on the beach and swam in the sea. It was lovely to see grandparents aunts uncles mothers fathers children all enjoy massive picnics , either on the beach or under sheltered tree areas which there was plenty.
The area was very clean , they also have an area just for dogs with there owners.

We were looking for something a bit different to the sandy beach with tourists crammed with sun beds and parasols cheek to jowl. This beach does require a car to get there, but parking is easy. Most definitely a beach used by locals and possibly Spanish tourists. Lots of pine trees to escape direct sun made it very pleasant. Not a typical sandy beach at all, more rocky and that strange floor made from years of tree bark layered up. A long stretch, so plenty of space. If you have beach chairs, bring them- the grass, needles from trees etc stick to towels and it’s a job to get rid of it all!
The water was beautifully clear.
Good to kayak and paddle board as quite a few people were doing.
No facilities at all but there is a Spar a few minutes drive away.
I’d definitely return.

Parking is a nightmare but if you can get in what rewards! Picturesque postage stamp beaches with shade and safe swimming, great restaurant and beach bar to take the pangs of thirst and hunger away.

I loved the beach at Aucanada. It was quiet and had a clear blue sea-perfect for snorkelling. The sea was warm and there was a lovely beach bar. A few nights a week there was live music at the beach bar, and we sat by the sea with drinks and snacks. In the day the beach bar sold ice-creams and slushies.
The most beautiful beach I've ever been to by far

This is a lovely beach, with shallow waters. Sunbeds can be rented daily and come with a woode/straw permanent parasol for shade. There is a beach bar located in different spots along the beach. Toilet facilities are in the local hotels or the beach bar.

Aucanada is located just past the Bay of Alcudia, giving it a great location right at the tip of the bay with wonderful views across the whole resort and bay. From Aucanada you can see right around to Can Picafort and further.

Aucanada itself is a great place to relax; though if it's high season and weekend you can forget relaxing because this is when all the locals appear with their picnics, barbecues, cool boxes, deck chairs, three-piece-suites and huge families! There is a nice grassy area in the shade of a few sparse trees making it the perfect place for locals to have their bbqs.

In the winter you can have a really nice walk around the rugged coastline skirting the golf course enjoying the view of the islet with Aucanada Lighthouse on it.

In the summer you can swim (or even walk, as it never gets deep) to the lighthouse from the beach. The water is very clear here and it is a popular place for snorkelling. Check the local fauna reports for jellyfish during the summer before you get in the water. Normally this is not a problem but sometimes they come in abundance from the mainland.

Sunbathing on this beach is a pleasure due to the shingle. It is not a sandy beach, but rather a beach with dunes of old dry seaweed making for a very comfy sunbathing experience.

There is a free car park with plenty of space just by the beach. From there just walk a little further around towards the lighthouse and you will find a quieter stretch of beach on a busy day, or stay on the main beach for a great view of the bay of Alcudia.

Hint: If you see any of the big ferries either arriving or leaving the port move away from the sea's edge, if that's where you are, because these big ferries create large waves even after they have passed and you and your iphone will get soaked if you are sun bathing right at the water's edge!

As it is right up by Hotel Presidente. The snorkelling up here is very good; clear water and calm seas are the norm. Parking to the right of the fork just past the hotel. Only 5 mins from alcudia. Cycling or walking involves an arduous hill. To the east of the beach bar is a beachy area without sand. This is a good place to dump your stuff, if you just want a swim or a snorkel. The backdrop with the flowers, boats, whitewashed buildings and pine trees is worth taking your camera for.
In summary:Terrific. But busy

What a find! Superb snorkelling in the many small rocky and sandy beaches in Aucanada. Lovely traditionally Spanish village. Used by the locals, especially at the weekends, but never overly busy. Different, but lovely beach experience.

this is a great place to take a young family. A safe and quiet beach which is mainly sand with some shingle. Some distance from the noisy main areas of Alcudia and the groups of loud teenagers/young adults that shout ,drink and swear too much. Many couples and families were enjoying a good time here without any interferance. A nice place with the major attractions not too far away if you want them.
