Magaluf Weekend Breaks
There are two things it's almost impossible not to do on a weekend in Magaluf: party and sunbathe. With perpetual sunshine and a never-ending string of parties, why would you want to do anything else?
If you only have two or three days to experience it, make sure you get a hotel right on the beach (and trust us, there's plenty to pick from). You don't have to blow your budget on alcohol on cheap weekends to Magaluf - consider getting a Magaluf Club Pass which gives you entry to four nights (with a free bar!) and queue jumping in one ticket (and other handy, money-saving extras).
If you're more interested in partying than anything else on your weekend in Magaluf, find accommodation on the Punta Ballena strip where all the themed bars, foam parties and pumping clubs will entertain you until the early hours.
Top 5 Things to Do in Magaluf
It's not just all about the nightlife here, although that is a big part of why most people seek out a holiday in Magaluf. If you can drag yourself out of bed before nightfall here are a couple of things you can do, if you book a trip in 2018:
- Challenge your mates to a race around the track and see who comes out victorious at the go-karting track.
- Water Park
- The nearby Western Water Park offers plenty of thrill rides as well as a few calmer ones if you've overindulged the night before - plus space to sunbathe as well.
- Water Sports
- Get out on the ocean with plenty of water sports to choose from. Get chucked off a banana boat, go up in the air with parasailing and much more besides!
- Magaluf is a mecca of all-night clubs, letting you party until the sun comes up. BCM is the most popular attraction here - with a 5,000 strong capacity, some of the world's most high-profile DJs and a few foam parties here and there, it's not hard to see why. There is also a main strip packed with places to dance the night away.
- Pirates Adventure Show
- Dancing, acrobatics and comedy - that's what you can expect at the Pirates Adventure Show. Such is its success, it has been running for 29 years, and we can see why - the show is spectacular, with swashbuckling antics including acrobatics with swords and fire-breathing.
How to get to Magaluf
The only way to start your holiday is to hop on a flight to Palma de Majorca Airport, where all flights arrive. It's just 20 kilometres from the resort so it's quick and easy to get to your hotel. With so many low cost airlines flying to the Balearics from the UK, it's so easy to organise cheap holiday, whether you want to come for a few days, a week or longer. Thanks to its popularity, many operators will package a hotel and flight for you to make it even easier to save your money for the Strip. You could consider car hire from Majorca airport, but if you're only planning on staying in the resort, check whether your hotel offers transfers, or book yourself onto a coach, either as part of your package deal or separately.
When to Go to Magaluf
Magaluf hits its peak in summer - specifically in July and August. However, this is when hotels and travel companies jack up their prices to capitalise on holidaymakers looking to party 'til dawn! Visit during this period if your main priority is hitting up the nightlife, and you don't mind paying a bit extra for the privilege. But if you'd still like to party but pay a bit less, official clubbing season begins in June and finishes in early September. If you're looking for beachside relaxation, the weather is warm from April until early October, so book in the shoulder season to save your pennies and avoid the club crowds!
If you are really looking for a bargain holiday, then consider Magaluf in the winter months. Hotels will still want to fill rooms and offer package holiday companies really cheap rates to entice customers. This leads to some very cheap prices, but the party atmosphere will be very minimal.
Where to stay in Magaluf
You will find a huge choice of cheap hotels here, as most of the accommodation is geared towards a holiday on a budget. You might even get something on the seafront if you book well ahead. Look out for central hotels and self-catering apartments to save all the pennies you can. Or, if you're feeling flush why not book into one of the five star resorts? A great bet for cheap holidays here is to look out for an all inclusive hotel. A final tip from us is, if you can persuade your friends to holiday with you, the cost of sharing a larger apartment can bring the price of your package down further.
