Mallorca Holiday airport transfers provide transportation for individual travellers and groups of all sizes, family transfers, cycling transfers and disability transfers directly from Palma de Mallorca airport or from your hotel or villa in Mallorca to Playa de Muro and anywhere on the island.
Today we will start with one of our favourite beaches; PLAYA DE MURO, in the north of Mallorca, 62 km from Palma de Mallorca airport. Mallorca airport transfers to Playa de Muro will take approximately 45 minutes.
Playa de Muro is not really a town or a resort, it is just a magnificent, long and golden beach on Mallorca's north eastern coast, between Alcudia Port and Can Picafort, on the vast Bay of Alcudia, with the marina on one end and miles of clean golden sand with turquoise blue sea on the southern side, a beach which stretches on indefinitely down the eastern coast of the island, morphing from family beach to party beach to virgin nudist beach to trendy beach cafes and on. It is also partly a natural reserve, called Son Bauló, protected from construction and home to a vast variety of flora and fauna; turtles, red pheasants, hares, rabbits, weasels and Algerian hedgehogs.
Its nearest towns are the Port of Alcudia, Alcudia old town and Can Picafort.
Can Picafort is 10 km from Sta. Margalida and 64 km from Palma de Mallorca Airport on the north coast of the island.
Alcudia old town is slightly inland, with a walled medieval town, cobbled streets and a charming old world feel about it, and Alcudia Port, on the coast, is a commercial port, yachting marina and fabulous beach and holiday resort.
Puerto Alcudia (or Port de Alcudia), a lively and youthful resort with hotels and villa rentals available for every kind of holiday and cafes and restaurants open late. This is not a party town like the ones you may find in the south of the island, but it does have a cool set of eateries and late night cocktail bars along the seafront.
Alternatively, book our highly accomplished transfer drivers to take you directly to Playa de Muro by direct airport transfer service from your hotel or villa and make this a real day out on Playa de Muro beach in Mallorca.
Playa de Muro is the most popular and largest holiday resort in the north of the island, and the peak season sees numbers in the area skyrocketing. Luckily the beach is extremely long and the town and port easily accommodate the numbers. However parking can be difficulty. There is one largish parking area in Playa de Muro and frankly there is never any space. You tend to have to meander round and round until you get lucky and find a rare parking spot, often miles away from where you really want to be.
Mallorca airport transfers to Playa de Muro resolve this problem easily, by driving you to your hotel or villa and then only returning to collect you should you want to visit another town or when you are due back at the airport at the end of your holidays.
Eating out in Playa de Muro is delightful. There are a several very trendy beach bars on the Can Picafort side of Playa de Muro and a whole array of cafes and restaurants on the Alcudia side.
Mallorca airport transfers will provide you with reliable and safe transportation to your restaurant of choice and take you home safely at the end of the evening. Allow yourself to enjoy an after dinner cocktail on the beach and make sure noone has to drive on unknown roads.
The Playa de Muro has over 150 officially recognized sites, a large part of which date from Pre-Roman times.
Playa de Muro has along its most virgin stretch of coast, an interesting archeological site: A short and relatively easy walk will take you to the Son Real necropolis or “Cementery of the Phoenicians” as it is known locally. It is a prehistoric burial ground used from the Iron Age until Roman times with over 100 underground tombs carved into the rock.
Alcudia old town is also worth mentioning here: it is encased inside the old walls of its medieval past and to the side of the town there are the archaeological remains of the Roman city known as Pollentia. Dating from 70 or 80 BC until the 6th Century, these are the most important archaeological remains to be found in Mallorca and excavation works are ongoing.
Playa de Muro beach goes from family holiday heaven on one end, with all the facilities you could dream of, ice cream stands and playgrounds in the sand, to a virgin expanse of beach on the far end, with absolutely nothing; no beach bar, no sun loungers nor parasols, only the golden sand and clear blue sea.
A life guard services provides protection and support along Playa de Muro beach throughout the day. This is not to say you can abandon the kids to play unguarded, there are too many people to leave that to the lifeguards. However, they do provide an extra pair of eyes and are on hand to help with stings, sunburn etc.
Playa de Muro beach has wooden walkways down to the shoreline and a wheelchair friendly boardwalk in some stretches of beach, but it isn't fully accessible and wheelchairs will struggle.
Playa de Muro is a blue flag beach and it shows immediately. The water is crystal clear and the sand is white and it goes on for miles. There aren't any toilets, showers, tourist information and water stations along most of the beach, it is remote and virgin and beautiful but there are some very trendy beach cafes where you can get a drink and meal and sit back and watch the waves.
