Magaluf holidays are a classic case of split personality. By day, its family-friendly credentials couldn’t be stronger and, after dark, the clubbing scene’s the stuff of legends.
Magaluf’s cut its teeth as a nocturnal habitat for as long as we can remember. The bars and clubs on the main street, Punta Ballena, stir into action when the sun goes down, and don’t call it a night until breakfast rolls around. You’ll find everything from Irish bars to foam parties, and there are plenty of places where you can grab a bite along the way.
First-rate for families
Once, all of Magaluf’s eggs were in the same neon-pulsing basket. These days, families are starting to balance out the bevy of bar-hoppers. And it's easy to see why. There’s a tonne of hotels tailored to cater for teens and tots, and the rest of the resort delivers big on the activities front. Pirates Adventure and the Western Water Park top the to-do list. The golden sands have plenty going for them when it comes to watersports, as well.Think banana boats and jet-skis, to name a few.
For a change of scenery, neighbouring Palma Nova’s worth a punt. It’s like a watered-down version of Magaluf, where things are shifted into a slightly lower gear. The beach fits Majorca’s classic white-sand stereotype, and it only takes 10 minutes to drive there. If you’d rather walk it, the beaches of Son Matias and an upside-down amusement park crop up on the route.
