The large stretches of Alcúdia's coastline are one of the most notable features of the municipality if one compares them to its total area. The Peninsula of Cap des Pinar, which determines the shape of the municipality, spreads towards the northeast separating the bays of Alcúdia and Pollença.

The long coastline of Alcúdia offers two different types of shore. Along the Peninsula of Cap des Pinar the coast is rugged and articulated with high sea cliffs at some points. The low coast can be found to the north and south with pebbled beaches and rocks in Pollença Bay (Es Grau and El Gravet) and fine sandy beaches in Alcúdia Bay (beaches of Alcúdia and Es Francesos).

The most outstanding geographical features are the coves of Es Clot, Es Dolç, S'Esquerda, Ses Caletes and La Solana; and the beaches of Alcanada, Sa Marina, Es Coll Baix and Es Secs; the most outstanding coastal elevations are Cap des Pinar, Cap de Menorca and Punta de Manresa. There are a series of small islands such as Sa Llosa des Barcarès, S'Illot, Es Bol d'en Roda and the Island of Alcanada.
