Cheap Holidays to Magalluf (Magaluf)
Magalluf (Magaluf) Overview
Magaluf needs no introduction as a top Brits Abroad destination. This larger-than-life resort on Majorca’s southwest coast is bold, brash and loud, but for the millions of visitors who come every year, that’s exactly how they like it. Home to Majorca’s biggest nightclub, Magaluf is the place to go for wild parties by night, lazy hours on the beach by day, and restaurants serving up delicious international food. It’s popular with families too, with a super-clean Blue Flag beach, theme parks nearby and plenty of activities to take part in.
Magaluf’s legendary nightlife combined with a fantastic Mediterranean climate make it a firm favourite with stag and hen parties as well as groups of friends just out for a good time. You’ll never run out of bars and clubs to visit, and there’s some great live entertainment on offer too. If you’d rather avoid the party crowds (and take advantage of lower prices) it’s best to visit out of season, as the weather is still pleasant in the winter months.
Take a day trip
The neighbouring resort of Palmanova, and Palma a little further along the coast, are easy to get to on the bus and ideal if you want a little break from Magaluf’s high-voltage atmosphere. Palmanova also has some good nightlife but is a bit more low-key, while Palma is the island’s stylish capital, home to some great boutique shopping and fascinating history.
