Alcudia has an extension of 60.51 sq. kms. with more than 30kms. coast line and is situated to the NE of Mallorca. It is formed by the peninsula of Cap del Pinar, which separates the bays of Alcudia and Pollensa, and by the interior area which borders with Pollensa to north and with la Pobla and Muro to the south.

The town of Alcudia lies on the isthmus separating the two bays: the widest, Alcudia, and the longest, Pollensa. Its privileged position has condicionated the events of its history.

Its land surface is formed by an accumulation of marine alluvium. Separating the two bays is the mountainous massif with pines and evergreen oaks, a peninsula which in quarternary times would have formed a large barren island. This area extends NE until Cap del Pinar and its highest peak is la Talaia. At its farthest point north there are peaceful coves and small beaches which can be reached by sea, to the S are the cliffs of Cap the Menorca and the beach of Coll Baix. To the S of Alcudia there are some low altitude hills: Puig de Sant Marti and the slopes of Son Fe. The remaining terrain is flat, dry land with cereals, almonds, figs and olives and a small extension of irrigated land for the cultivation of potatoes and vegetables. Sheep and pig farming complete the occupations of the land.
