    What are the best beaches in Magaluf?

    We can’t talk about beaches in Magaluf without giving mention to Magaluf Beach itself. Packed with activities and lined with nightclubs in the lively tourist centre, if you’re worried about FOMO then this is the place to be. The iconic Palmanova Beach is also located closeby, with sun loungers, parasols and swanky bars within easy reach. If you prefer something a little more scenic, though, then head to Cala Vinyes. This palm-studded bay is just 60m long, with shallow waters great for the little ones, and there's not a jet ski in sight, making it the perfect spot to unwind with your beach read.

    What are the top hotels in Magaluf?

    When it comes to party scenes, nowhere does it like Maga. If you’re jetting off for some adult-only fun in the sun, then BH Mallorca Hotel is the perfect backdrop thanks to its central location, supersized sun terrace and thrilling waterpark where you won’t be waiting in line behind the kids. All about those beach scenes and pool days? Sol Barbados and Sol Wave House All Suites won’t disappoint, with extravagant pool complexes and family-friendly activities all round. If you’re looking for somewhere to take the little ones on a Magaluf holiday though, then it has to be Sol Katmandu Park & Resort. This resort is home to one of TripAdvisor’s Top Ten Amusement and Water Parks in Spain, along with three outdoor swimming pools and non-stop entertainment.

    What's the food like in Magaluf?

    ​Whether you’re looking to enjoy a sit-down dinner or grab a burger on your way to the beach, you won’t have to walk far to find it in Magaluf. You’ve heard of paella, but have you heard of fideua? This Mediterranean dish has all of the ingredients and flavours of a traditional paella, but it’s made with pasta noodles instead of rice for a comforting twist. When it comes to midday snacks, give ensaimada a go - a traditional Mallorcan sweet bread, or sink your teeth into some turron - a homemade almond nougat. A Magaluf holiday got you missing the food from home? This tourist resort has plenty of British restaurants at hand, Tom Brown’s being one of the most popular. Here you can tuck into some comfort food (we’re talking breakfast baps, jacket potatoes and baked beans) whilst washing it down with your favourite beer.

    Things To Do on Magaluf Holidays

    Sol Wave House
    Try your hand at riding the waves at Wave House Mallorca. If you’ve always fancied giving surfing a go, but need something a bit softer first, the Double FlowRider is an artificial wave machine that is an exciting place to start. If splashtastic fun isn’t your scene, then there are plenty of places to chill-out, soak up the sun and, when the DJs are doing their thing, listen to the beats all day long.

    Katmandu Park
    Kids young and old can have a fantastically fun day out at Katmandu Park. From soft play to 5D experiences, there is something for each type of thrill seeker at the park. Younger ones can dive into the splash park and take a ride on the virtual 4D roller coaster, whilst the older ones can fight off zombies and enter a 5D spook-fest at The Asylum.

    Boat tour
    Explore the beautiful coast of Majorca on a Bladerunner boat tour. The two-hour Jet Boat ride takes you on a journey to discover caves, coves and beaches with swimming and snorkelling along the way. Once you’ve been amazed by the stunning scenery that the island has to offer, the music and drinks flow on the return back to Magaluf beach.

    Ocean’s Beach Club
    If Magaluf’s nightlife isn’t enough for you, dance the day away at Ocean’s Beach Club. Located by the beach, you can watch the waves come in whilst sipping your favourite cocktail. For those who love to splash out, the VIP beds offer you comfort whilst eating, drinking and partying throughout the day. Whether you’re on a clubbing getaway with your besties or want a fun couple’s day out, Ocean’s Beach is a must-visit.
