Majorca’s beachy playground

Few places on earth so richly deserve to be called a party playground as Magaluf, the Majorcan town that’s purely focused on having as much fun as possible. Magaluf holidays are about having a laugh, not taking things too seriously and enjoying the odd boogie. But there’s plenty more to the place than just nightclubs. The resort’s fabulous natural setting, around a pretty turquoise bay with a long stretch of soft, white sand, means holidays to Magaluf are defined by relaxed, lazy afternoons at the beach.

Plus the astonishing array of restaurants means you never have to dine at the same venue twice, there are countless activities for kids and the atmosphere on the main strip is electric, even if you’re not planning on heading to the bars and nightclubs. Many groups of friends come here for the all-night dancing and lively pool parties, but they stay for the sunshine, glossy natural beauty and the enticing sense that every single person they meet is just out to have a fantastic time.

Your Magaluf questions, answered

Very much so – as well as its fantastic beach and shallow sea, the resort also includes a go-karting track and has two water parks within easy reach.
If you’re there to party, the clubs open around April and shut in September. In peak summer, August especially, the resort is at its busiest and temperatures are in the high 20s.
As well as the nearby beaches of Magaluf, Palma Nova and Son Matias, there are the Blue Flag beaches of Palma and Cala Mayor to discover. These popular beaches are a short drive along the coast from Magaluf. Palma beach is a long, wide sandy beach with shallow waters. It has all the facilities you need, including a good choice of refreshments. Cala Mayor is another sandy beach, bordered by seafront hotels and rocks. As well as holidaymakers looking to relax, it often attracts avid surfers.

If you fancy spoiling yourself, book into one of the luxury hotels with spa facilities. And you may like to spend time on the golf courses or perhaps do a spot of sightseeing by boat.
Most bars in Magaluf – and there are dozens of them – are divided between the main strip of Punta Ballena and BCM Square, both of which are perfect people-watching spots.

Of course, it’s not just about bars and clubs. There are boat trips, waterparks, theme parks and physical activities to keep you entertained on holiday too.
Magaluf is famed for its warm weather, beaches and buzzing nightlife. It’s been a popular holiday destination since the 1960s and is still going strong. The hotels have changed a lot since the early days though. The modern hotels and apartments provide the best facilities possible. One thing that hasn’t changed is the attraction of the beaches. They are still the first place to head in the daytime, but there’s never a shortage of space on the soft sand.
Mallorca’s capital city of Palma is about a 20-minute drive. So, it’s not far to travel and perfect for a day trip. There’s a lot to see, including the lovely cathedral and ancient castle. And there are more beaches and plenty of coves nearby. If you want to stay closer to Magaluf, you could walk to the neighbouring Palma Nova. It’s only 15 minutes to the shops, cafes and beach there.
