We went to Alcudia Old town and wanted to find a beach close by and these appeared to be the nicest.

When we got there we loved it, easy to get to, plenty of room, generally a quiet beach, lovely sand, sea was nice and calm and the water was great. Plenty of fish in the water as well to see if you snorkel. Quite picturesque as well.

Parking was a little troublesome though, so get there early to get a good spot.

I acceded by a rented bycicle. The beach is idylic, shallow, soft sand, small but perfect. Worths the visite.

This is one of the best bays in Alcudia and we visit often,unfortunatly it has possibly the worst beach bar in Mallorca. Staff are rude and aggressive and dont want to serve tourists,
Recomend the beach but take your own refreshments.

San Joan beach is one of the best in Mallorca UNFORTUNATELY the same cannot be said for the beach bar, worst service i have ever seen, staff are just plain ignorant and rude. Told me to go home thinking i was a tourist (Have lived here for 12 years) will never go there again and the council should take this bar off of them as they do nothing to improve the image of Mallorca

Staying in Mal Pas we were reccomended this beach. I wouldn't say it was particularly quiet but it was popular with families like ours and had a relaxing feel to it. The children enjoyed playing in the waves and snorkelling to see the fish.

Unfortunately the bar/restaurant which looked lovely, left a lot to be desired. The staff were extremely rude, not making eye contact and making us unsure if they were talking/listening to us, then snapping at us when we repeated ourselves to make sure. There was a sign asking that customers aren't nasty to bar staff, which is often a sign that there is a problem with the bar staff!!

We felt confident that we would be seated for lunch as the tables were only half full, and there was a sign on the wall that said tables were reserved for customers eating lunch. However when we entered the seating area we were shouted at by both staff, and other customers who were frustrated at not being seated despite a long wait. There was zero explanation of why this was a problem, or how long it would be to get a table. We had to keep asking questions to decide wether or not to wait, or find out if we could take food away, all of which were met with the same lack of eye contact and rude manner. Reading the reviews it seems like common practice. In fact I only came on here to see if others had experienced the same as it was the worst service I've ever experienced in a place of tourism and leisure!

So take lunch with you and enjoy the beach but avoid the bar.
