Magaluf

Majorca’s most wanted

Majorca’s best-known resort, on the southwest coast of the island, has been drawing holidaymakers for 40 years. The recipe is simple – a palm-dotted beach and just about every kind of attraction going, from the Western Water Park to the House of Katmandu. And for people who like to party, Magaluf is always happy to oblige.

A kilometre-long beach

The resort’s gravitational pull is the kilometre-long beach of lilywhite sand, so clean it’s earned itself a Blue Flag. It’s dotted with sunbeds, offers all varieties of watersports, and is bordered by a broad promenade lined with bars and restaurants. And for a slightly quieter beach life, the resort of Palma Nova is an easy walk along the coast.

Nightlife champion

Magaluf doesn’t need an invitation to have a good time. The main strip is a neon-lit thoroughfare of bars and clubs, and at the far end is the superclub, BCM, which is a match for Ibiza’s best dancefloors. Families are also spoiled when it comes to evening entertainment, with dinner shows and live music ten-a-penny.

Close to Palma

Around 30 minutes’ drive from Magaluf is Palma, Majorca’s chic capital. The old town is a cat’s cradle of alleyways, and the star attraction, the Gothic cathedral, Sa Seu, towers over a glitzy marina which really comes to life after sundown.
