Magalluf Mallorca Spain

05/06/2012 09:03

Situated in the liveliest part of Mallorca, offering wonderful long white beaches, a wealth of entertainment and an exhausting nightlife. Much has been done to improve Magalluf over recent years with some of the 60s apartment blocks being demolished and a new palm-lined promenade being created, however it is still very much a party town popular with 18 to 30s looking for sun, sand and the odd San Miguel. Quieter areas can be found on the outskirts of Magalluf, in the suburb of Torrenova and in neighbouring Palma Nova.

It is boisterous and noisy, but its notoriety is only partly deserved. The Lager Belt includes all the flat ground at the centre and back of the resort, as well as the base of the Torrenova promontory. Outside this area are more peaceful enclaves, including Cala Vinas and Torrenova, a quieter, greener and more scenic suburb.

This area is suited to the younger lively crowd, singles and many families, mostly European and British, throughout the high season. Mature holidaymakers tend to take over in the low season. This resort has something for all, though the focus is still on the younger crowds who come to enjoy the active nightlife.

Magalluf Spain
This resort has over 100 tourist hotels, aparthotels and apartments. Many are large package operations with a holiday-camp feel, which have set dining hours and intrusive public-address systems. Most of these are securely middlemarket, and many open from May to Oct only. The more appealing, higher-rated establishments are at Cala Vinas and in a group at the S end of the beach. Some good properties can be found in the quieter suburb of Torrenova. There is a handful of good-quality hotelswhich exist in Son Caliu, adjacent to Palma Nova.

Magalluf is found on the south west coast and is 15½-ml from Palma Bay, merging with the smaller resort of Palma Nova (9½ mls SW of Palma, 15½ mls from the airport). The resort is facing south east, overlooking the wide bay and Magalluf Beach. It is backed by open rural land.

The beach here is the largest on this section of coast and, indeed, on the S side of the island. It is broad and deep, with fine white sand, though it is still capable of overcrowding. It’s safe to swim here; the currents are not too strong and the waters fairly shallow; lifeguards are present from May to October.
Ther are scores of shops with reasonable prices, selling jewellery, clothing, beach and water-sports wear, souvenirs and handicrafts. There are some some high-street retailers. However there is lots of junk, and the more serious shopper will do better in Palma. There is a Monday-morning market in Calvia, and various others throughout the island. There are many small, well-stocked supermarkets in the centre itself, with a couple of large supermarkets on the edge of the resort.

During the daytime there are water sports, go-karting, water parks, bowling and pony rides in the precincts. The standard glass-bottomed boat trip has now been outdone by “Nemo”, the Finnish-built, glass-sided submarine. There are facilities such as tennis, cycling, bungee rocket (summer) and golf courses all within 5 mls.

Magalluf is Mallorca’s entertainment and clubbing capital. Most hotels have organised entertainment, some excellent, some appalling. Most are free with the exception of Pirates, which is a must for those who aren’t easily offended. The largest nightclub on the island is BCM, which attracts top DJs from around the world.
Other clubs include Bananas, School Disco, Boomerang and Carwash (60s and 70s music). Most clubs don’t get going until around 11pm, but there are lots of good bars nearby which offer good music and large jugs of sangria. Popular ones include BCM Cafe, Panama Jacks, Bar 29, Lennon’s and Eva’s.

There are plenty of restaurants in Magaluf cater for many tastes. Indian, Chinese, Mexican, Italian, and even some Spanish restaurants compete with fast food outlets and lots of pubs and cafés offering full English breakfasts and Premiership football. Better restaurants can be found in Palma and Andraitx.
