Built around white sandy beaches and turquoise seas, Magaluf has become one of the largest and most favoured holiday destinations across Europe. Located on the southwest coast of Majorca, it appeals to families and young tourists alike, with plenty of waterparks, excursions and theatre shows, as well as its notorious nightlife.

Language and Currency

The official languages of Magaluf are Catalan and Spanish, and of course, English is widely spoken. The Currency is Euros as it is across Spain.


Visiting with family and looking for that Travel Guide-esque day at the beach? Head to Playa de Magaluf, Playa de Son Matias or Playa Palma Nova - three of the best beaches in Magaluf, all offering crystal clear waters and golden sands, perfect for catching a tan and endless sandcastle building. (not exclusive to just the kids!)

If you're looking to be more active, there are waterparks dotted around and plenty of water-sports available on the beaches and some even offer excursions, such as the Quake Jet Boat Ride - just check with the provider about age and height restrictions for children.

Or why not sit back, relax and enjoy some of the views that Magaluf has to offer? Discover Palma de Mallorca via an open top bus, complete with a tour guide for the ultimate way to get to know the city.

Lastly, it's worth mentioning that a visit to the Globo Balear Theatre to catch the thrilling acrobatic Pirate Adventure show comes highly recommended. VIP tables for dinner before the show are available and a Pirate themed bar for after drinks needs a visit!

Eating out

The city has a greatly British influence due to the high demand from its tourists. However, step away from the hustle and bustle and you can uncover a few hidden gems; look out for bakeries offering the renowned Ensaimadas - sweet pastry treats, which can be enjoyed plain, or traditionally with accompaniments such as cream, pumpkin or filled with chocolate!

If you travel a little outside of the main Magaluf strip, you will find traditional tapas bars, full of authentic Spanish cuisine from 'Blind Mans' Paella, Crisp Salads and Smoked Pork Sausages. And you will be hard to find a bar that doesn't display the traditional jamon serrano (a large, cured ham) proudly on an attractive slicing board.

Liqueurs are a favourite in Magaluf; from herbs and aniseed, to locally grown oranges and almonds, there are a huge range of variations to try. Don't forget, it's perfectly acceptable to add Coñac to your coffee at any time of the day, but for something softer, opt for an unrivalled glass of cold, freshly squeezed orange juice.


Magaluf offers a truly unforgettable night out, from little bars to mega-clubs on the strip, there is something for all tastes. You'll find the likes of BCM Planet Dance, The Project and Boomerang lighting up the streets amidst smaller local pubs and bars. Don't expect to be able to go out for 'a quiet few' may end up dancing on a table with a fishbowl..!
