Magaluf holidays

There’s so much more to this Balearic Island beauty than just its party reputation. From its beautiful beaches overflowing with watersports to its laid-back charm and thrill-seeking waterparks. Whether you’re after sun-soaked days lazed by the pool or neon nights, Magaluf holidays should be on your radar.

If you’re heading to Magaluf for its drinking scene, then Punta Ballena, AKA Magaluf Strip, is the place to be. It’s one of Majorca’s clubbing hotspots with big-name venues such as Tokio Joes and Boomerang providing early hour partying. And picking up an MCP (Magaluf Club Pass) will see you hopping from one bar to the next with unlimited access to the best clubs. 

Things to do

Holidays to Magaluf start with a cocktail in hand while soaking up the Spanish sun, especially if you’re lapping up luxury at Nikki Beach Club. When you’re not dancing to the DJ’s laid-back beats, sink your toes into one of its idyllic sand spots, before taking a dip in the crystal clear waters of the Med. Or if you’re feeling brave, ride the waves via banana boat - will you be the last one standing? And if you’ve got the kids in tow, days are best spent digging for treasure or hiring a pedalo kitted out with a slide!  

When you need a change of pace, Western Waterpark is less than five minutes away. Here daredevils can plunge down vertical slides while your mini holidaymakers head straight for the splash zones and tipping buckets. As for adults, there’s no better way to nurse a hangover than lounging around a lazy river. When dusk falls, pre-drinks are whipped up at Icon Bar. Here fruity concoctions pack a punch, and ice-cold beers are served with awe-inspiring sea views. And why stop there when music-pumping clubs such as Bananas and Carwash are calling.

Famous nightlife

Revellers, welcome to one of the best party destinations in the Mediterranean. Think themed events, karaoke bellowing from bars, foam fiestas and VIP nights at the best clubs in Magaluf - you’re in for the time of your life. There’s even a drinking spot dedicated to the American box office hit ‘Coyote Ugly’ when you fancy a dance on the bar! And that’s just its after-dark scene. Your days are just as impressive, with Daiquiri Palace cooling you down with its 20 different flavoured slush cocktails. That’s before you head on Magaluf’s famous sunset booze cruise. 

Great beaches

After all that late-night fun, you’ll be looking for somewhere relaxing to recover. Luckily for you, Magaluf is blessed with a stunning stretch of coastline featuring soft, white sand and swaying palm trees. You can pick the perfect spot on the beach and dose up on vitamin D while catching some much-needed Z’s. Or try any of the great watersports available to you, such as jet skis and paragliding.

Not to mention its calm, shallow Mediterranean waters are a magnet for families. And with a promenade bursting with buckets and spades, as well as inflatables and ice cream shacks, your mini holidaymakers are set for endless splash-filled fun. 

Lots to do

Aside from the beach and the nightlife, you’ll find plenty of other exciting ways to fill your time in Magaluf. From the acrobatic Pirates Adventure Dinner Show to Balinese beds and infinity pool dips at the Wave House and scuba diving adventures in the Med. But for heart-pumping fun, the fast-paced slides at Katmandu Park won’t let you down. Throw in some interactive experiences and a lazy river, and you’re looking at an action-packed day in the sun.
