If you still have energy left and want to hit the town after your meal there are a range of fun loving bars to cater to the night owls, otherwise you can hit the beach again for a midnight stroll or even go for a little night time swim.
Water and Weather Temperature
Gorgeous summer weather is what you can expect if you visit Alcudia in the months of July and August with average temperatures of 24 degrees C and 25 degrees C respectively. After that it tends to dip towards averages of 10 degrees C and 9 degrees C in the winter months, so there is a reason why the summer months are the most popular for people taking holidays to Alcudia!
With water temperatures in the summer months around the same averages as the air temperatures with 24 degrees C and 25 degrees C the water is extremely inviting, combine this with the 9mm rainfall expected for the entire month of July I think we know which month looks like the best one to pay a visit to this part of the Island.
