Stylish and secluded
This dreamy beach resort on Majorca’s north coast curves around the Bay of Alcudia, flanked by golden dunes and juniper trees. Playa de Muro moves at an easy-going pace; life here mostly revolves around the beautiful Blue Flag beach, serving up silky white sand and calm, clear waters made for swimming and snorkelling.
A cluster of upmarket shops, bars and restaurants brings a chic vibe to this otherwise low-key resort, with a smart palm-lined promenade hosting a sociable nightlife scene, where you can sip sangria and watch live music.
If you fancy some more action, popular Alcudia is just 10 minutes along the bay.
Flight time from the UK to Majorca is around 2 hours 15 minutes.
Transfer time from Palma airport to Playa de Muro is approximately 1 hour.
Majorca starts warming up for summer around April, when the mercury climbs into the 20s and doesn’t stop until around July, which can top 30°C. You’re looking at around 11 hours of sunshine a day in midsummer, with bath-like sea temperatures. Things won’t cool off until October, which still hovers in the low to mid 20s.
Currently visas are not required for UK citizens travelling to Spain.
Restaurant bills include a service charge by law in Spain, so whether you choose to tip further is up to you. If you enjoyed the meal and service, it is customary to leave 5-10%. Hotel porters and maids will appreciate a small tip, and while taxi drivers don’t require a tip, it’s common to round up the fare.
The official language of Spain is Spanish. English is widely spoken too, so getting by is easy.
