Playa de Muro
The area known as "Playa de Muro" actually only one beach shared by the municipalities of Alcúdia and Santa Margalida. It is one of the most popular destinations on the island; its visitors are mainly families, since it is a very safe and quiet place.
The border with Alcúdia is the most developed area, leaving the rest unspoilt up to the municipality of Santa Margalida. The beach has the blue European Union flag which guarantees good environmental conditions. The sand is fine and white, and the quite gentle waves allow the seabed to be visible at all times. Behind the huge sandy area lies the Albufera Natural Park, a wetland area attracting all types of birds and aquatic fauna.
This coastal area contrasts with the local agricultural tradition. A few metres away from the coast, the impact of tourism is almost unnoticeable. Within its grounds there also are 48 archeological sites, among them Ca Na Cotxera, a Talayotic enclosure belonging to the first culture that inhabited Majorca.
