Do you know what to do in Alcudia in 2015? In order to continue informing our customers about the best things to do in Alcudia, Majorca while on vacation in 2015, this post is the September version of one of our previous posts. Get your sporty clothing ready if you want to keep up with this month’s event schedule, although there’s also a bit of musical fun for those of you who want to relax for a while.
Before we delve into the myriad of events related to sports that are to be carried out this month in Alcudia, let’s take a look into more cultural activities that have proven to be more than entertaining in the past years.
For starters, Santa Anna festival is scheduled for September 6th, 2015. This festivity is celebrated on the first Sunday of September, in remembrance of Mare de Déu de Santa Anna. The celebrations are linked to the chapel of the same name that was built in the 13th century (which makes it the oldest church in all of Majorca) and has a connection to horses. That day, many horse races and displays take place in the town and lots of people attend the festival to witness this widespread tradition.
On a more modern side, the Alcudia Jazz Festival returns to the town once more to delight visitors and townspeople with a taste of spectacular melodies. The first concert will be free and takes place on the last days of August, in the seafront promenade (Paseo Marítimo) in Puerto de Alcudia. After that one, every Saturday (that is the 5th, 12th, 19th and 26th of September 2015) the performances will be in the Alcudia auditorium at 10 pm with a price between 10 and 12 euros.
We begin the sport events with the less demanding of them: the Inselradio Golf Tournament on September 19th, 2015. This is one of the most popular tournaments in Majorca and advanced booking is recommended if you want to enjoy this event in the beautiful golf courses of Alcanada.
For the swimming lovers, the Xtreme Open Water Swim kicks off first this month. On September 5th 2015 you will be able to cross all the bay of Pollensa in this sea race. Starting at Formentor beach and passing through the beach of Sant Pere, this medium difficulty route will prove your resistance for 7 km.
Next up you can attend the “IV Ciutat d’Alcudia” half marathon on September 20th 2015, a new edition of the popular race that goes through some of the most beautiful spots of the town while testing its participants’ mettle to the limit. This half marathon and the Open Water Swim should be just an appetizer of what’s to come, one of the world’s toughest and most challenging races: the Thomas Cook Ironman 70.3 Majorca.
One of the best things to do in Alcudia, this year’s Ironman 70.3 instalment begins on September 26th, 2015. This event benefits from Alcudia’s privileged location in the north coast to offer a route that is both spectacular and challenging. We also recommend advance booking for this event since it’s one of the preferred training grounds of professional athletes and triathletes all around the globe. However, this race is limited to adults so children will have to look for different things to do in Alcudia. Fortunately, a lighter version of the triathlon is held the day before: Ironkids Majorca on September 25th, 2015. That day, children aged from 5 to 14 years will be able to participate in shorter circuits prepared in the Puerto de Alcudia beach. These race tracks will be segmented by age and distance, so everyone can participate and have fun.
That concludes our recommendations of things to do in Alcudia, Majorca. Nonetheless, if you plan on staying after September, the month of October is also full of events, fairs, things to do and places to visit. Stay tuned for our next instalment of the best things to do in Alcudia in 2015!
