Porto Pollenca or Acludia ( playa de muro)

Hi, We are thinking of going to Majorca for our hols in June. We enjoy beautiful beaches ( not too busy), hiking, running and kayaking. Which resort would best suit us ?? . Thanks

Well the beach at Playa de Muro takes some beating.Both these resorts are flat and the roads network around Puerto Pollensa is more extensive and varied. .Playa de Muro is along the Bay of Alcudia strip with the very busy main road C712 running parallel to the coastline and just a few hundred metres inland. For running and hiking then PP would be it,some rugged terrain on the popular walks across Boquer to Cala San Vicente, but for the scenic Caribbean-like beach it is PdM. Haven't seen any kayaking.

The beach at Playa de Muro is one of the best on the island . I do like PP beach though . PP would probably be a better base for an active holiday .

Base yourself in Porto Pollenca more choice for hiking and running and the beach is fine just not as good as Playa de Muro . Much more choice for eating options too. Playa de Muro is basically a big complex of hotels built on a great beach whereas Porto Pollenca is a proper resort with all the facilities you would expect and in many travellers opinions the best holiday choice in Majorca.

I feel Puerto Pollensa would suit you better. The beach there is very good (Playa de Muro is even better) - but PP wins out on all your other preferences. Have a look at the link below and scroll down to Sail & Surf for watersport activity options. It doesn't mention kayaking but I've seen kayaks for hire at a place adjacent to Sail & Surf.

PP wins out in a big way if you are also seeking good food; plenty of options, all types; all price ranges.
