Book a Thomas Cook holiday to Magaluf and spend the summer between sun-drenched golden beaches and clubbing until dawn at BCM.
Start the day by spending some time working on your tan, swimming in the crystal clear waters or chilling out on the soft sand of Magaluf beach. When you’ve got the energy, hit the water sports centre and hire some water skis or challenge your mates to be the last one standing on the banana boat. On a really hot day, take the bus to the local water park and check out the water slides or float away on the lazy river. In Magaluf, nights out start early and finish late. Head to the Strip for pre-drinks and games before partying the night away on BCM Square.
Magaluf’s main beach is right in the centre of the resort, a gorgeous arc of golden sand that stretches for nearly a kilometre. The water is clean and very clear, with a shallow, warm shore perfect for swimming and water sports. The beach is one of the biggest attractions in Magaluf, known for its buzzing party atmosphere and seafront promenade packed with bars, shops and places to eat. When you fancy a little down-time in the sunshine, there are lots of comfy loungers and beach umbrellas so you can create your perfect chill-out zone.
Magaluf is Majorca’s water sports hotspot, with centres providing a top range of equipment and fun stuff to try when you’ve had enough of sunbathing. Whizz across the water on jet skis, grab hold on the banana boat or try something really exciting like paragliding. If that’s given you a taste for adrenaline, visit favourite Magaluf attraction Aqualand. Less than half an hour away by bus, the water park has huge swimming pools, speedy water slides and rapids for racing your mates in a rubber ring. For something more laid-back, head for the lazy river or relax in the jacuzzi.
If there’s one thing Magaluf’s known for, it’s clubbing. One of Majorca’s party capitals, Magaluf is famous for the Strip, the main street jam-packed with bars and clubs plus promoters pulling in the crowds with drink deals. The legendary BCM club is in its own square, packed with door-to-door big name bars with a constant party atmosphere. Look out for fancy dress parties, foam parties and UV paint parties, plus major events like Majorca Rocks putting on headliners like Plan B and Tinie Tempah. One of the best places in Magaluf for clubbing is at sea – the boat parties here are famous, with resident DJs and cheap drinks.
