Magaluf is Majorca’s biggest draw, with its numerous bars, nightclubs, and a powder-soft sandy beach. The area is very popular with younger travelers, mainly due to the resort town’s lively nightlife. Are you planning a holiday in Magaluf? Then continue reading our tips on where to stay and what to do there.

Where to stay in Magaluf

Younger generation considering a trip to Magaluf has several options for budget accommodation. Self-catering apartments can be rented fairly cheaply, with a set cost for the accommodation rather than a charge per person. This makes it a good choice for large groups who can split the cost between them. Hotel HM Martinique, which has over 200 apartments, is particularly popular, being just a short walk from the beach, nightclubs, and bars.

Staying in a youth hostel would be another budget-friendly option for their Spain holiday. For those who don’t mind sharing a room and facilities, this would be a very economical way to travel.

For anyone who would prefer to stay in a hotel, it is possible to get good deals by booking late. Hotels will often offer last-minute deals, so rooms can be booked at discounted prices as late as the day before traveling.

What to do in Magaluf

There are plenty of activities to enjoy in Magaluf without overspending. Spanish holiday climate and sandy beach make it a popular area for sunbathing, which is ideal for those who want to spend their days relaxing in the sun.

At night, there is certainly plenty of entertainment. There is a huge number of bars, all with something different to offer. The choice includes karaoke, disco, and sports bars. There are also some bars with traditional British names, such as The Red Lion and The Kings Arms which both have prominent disc jockeys for entertainment, although these bear little resemblance to the traditional British pub! The drinks tend to be very cheap, with most bars having some form of happy hour promotion. There is also a varied choice of restaurants, including Spanish, Italian, and Indian.

Those who want to try something different while on holiday may want to join the Magaluf Booze Cruise. The cruise lasts approximately two and a half hours, and guests can take part in party games and dance to tunes played by the DJ onboard. This can be booked prior to the holiday, with discounts of 10% offered for groups of more than seven. If anyone in the group is celebrating a birthday, they can get on board for free and be treated to a free bottle of champagne!

Due to the climate, the beach and the nightlife, Magaluf is a popular destination for students taking a holiday with a group of friends. The reasonably priced accommodation and entertainment mean that even those on a budget can join in.
