Sun, sea, sand and sangria are the ingredients of life in Magaluf, Spain’s lively and electric resort enclave. The golden sand beaches and tantalising sea offer a welcome respite for weary travellers, while the thriving nightlife and party boats attract a young and vibrant crowd.
Things to do in Magaluf
Dance the night away along Magaluf’s leading pub and club street, Punta Ballena. Colloquially known as The Strip, this vibrant boulevard contains over 50 bars and four nightclubs, many of which stay open until sunrise. Catch a world-renowned DJ at Tokio Joes or sway to the rhythm at BCM.
Grab a board and hit the Waverider, Magaluf’s artificial wave machine. Hang ten as you ride an infinity wave or relax with a refreshing drink in the open-air lounge. If you’d rather surf real waves, the beach is right behind you, where you’ll find opportunities to go parasailing, jet skiing and scuba diving.
Experience a night of swashbuckling and revelry at the Pirates Adventure Show. This pirate-themed performance features acrobatics, dancing, classic sea shanties and a complimentary meal. You can also board a Magaluf party boat and listen to live tunes as you sail through the crystal-clear water surrounding Mallorca.
Don’t miss Magaluf’s main attraction, Katmandu Resort. This “upside-down house” not only features a wacky lopsided exterior, but also includes numerous family-friendly games and activities, such as the Katlantis Splash Park, a virtual laser gun rollercoaster and a 36-hole mini-golf course.
Getting around Magaluf
You can fly into Palma Airport, where taxis and buses connect to the centre of Magaluf within 30 minutes. Most of Magaluf can be explored on foot, but private cars and local buses are available to reach attractions outside the city.
