Young at heart

Magaluf doesn’t do things by halves. This thriving resort on Majorca’s south west coast lines up supersized clubs, larger-than-life party people, and the biggest and best white-sand beach this side of the island. No wonder it’s been such a hit with holidaymakers for the best part of 40 years.


It’s not all sun, sand and San Miguel though. Families also make up a big chunk of Magaluf’s fan base. The sea here is sheltered and shallow, so armband-clad kids are safe. And things to do are ten-a-penny – dolphin shows, banana boats and go-karts all make the list.

Peaceful Palma Nova

Head to the next-door resort of Palma Nova, and things are a bit more low-key. Expect calmer sands and a few traditional restaurants mixed in with the more lively stuff. Plus, the pace gets even slower come October, when the whole area becomes a magnet for couples seeking some winter sun.

Close to Palma

Strike out further along the coast – half an hour on the bus – and you’re in the island’s chic capital, Palma. Its twisting Medieval streets and whisper-filled churches are the chalk to Magaluf’s cheese.
