The ever popular resort of Magaluf lies 28km from Palma Airport on the southwest coast of Mallorca. It has long been a favourite destination for holidaymakers of all ages with enough attractions to keep families, singles and retired people coming back year after year.
Magaluf is particularly well known for its nightlife during the summer season when it competes with Benidorm and Ibiza as one of the liveliest places to go in the whole Mediterranean region. Its top nightclubs such as BCM are well known by clubbers throughout Europe and some of the top DJs from the UK turn up here for short stints during these months. During the rest of the year its hundreds of bars and its clubs ensure a steady stream of visitors on stag and hen weekends.
Places to Stay
However, there’s plenty more to Magaluf than its nightlife such as its beautiful beach with its fine sand, clear water and diverse watersports. There are small kiosk bars set up along the beach during the peak of summer playing great music and there’s some good British pubs nearby such as Linekers which has ice cold beers and live sport all day long. It’s no wonder that Magaluf Stag Weekends have become so popular!
You’ll find plenty theme parks around Magaluf to pass your time including Marineland which is just 4km east at Portals Nous and the waterparks of Aqualand and Western Park which are just on the main road heading west out of Magaluf. For a brilliant evening of entertainment for all the family you should go to the Pirates Adventure which is the island’s number one show attracting over 3 million people since it started. For something a little more active you can enjoy a round of golf at one of the nearby courses.
There’s plenty to keep you amused for a fortnight in and around Magaluf, however, if you do decide to rent a car you’ll be richly rewarded. Just west of the resort are some fabulous beaches such as Portals Vells. Further afield you can head over to the quaint beachside hamlet of Sant Elm on the island’s south west tip overlooking the island of Dragonera for a paella lunch at one of the beachside cafés. Or drive up to Soller along the rugged south west coast to discover the real beauty of this magnificent island. If you prefer not to drive there are plenty excursions to popular attractions around the island or you can simply hop on a local bus and head into Palma for the day to see one of Spain’s most beautiful cities.
