Magalluf has a legendary status with the young people of the UK. It is one of the most popular destinations for young holiday makers looking for sun, sea, sand and eh … San Miguel? Well come on isn’t that the recipe of a magical holiday for most people under 30 – and quite a few of those over 30s too? It’s also a great place to bag a last minute cheap holiday too!
If you don’t know Magalluf is a major resort on the paradise island of Majorca, a Spanish island located in the warm Mediterranean Sea of southern Europe. Its location means that Magalluf has on average more than 300 days of sunshine a year and temperatures in July and August hit 30 -35°C! That makes the summers in the UK look positively artic.
Magalluf attracts over a million visitors a year drawn by: the incredible weather; the legendary night life – many of the clubs stay open as long as you can stay awake – and of course the incredible beaches with their white sands and crystal clear water.
Magalluf is perhaps most famous for its drinking culture, but please be sensible. Here are a few tips to make sure your Magaluf holiday is magic and not tragic.
- The locals often say only mad dogs and Englishmen go out in the mid-day sun, unfortunately this is often true. The mid-day sun in the height of summer can be extremely dangerous especially if you’ve been drinking all night long. Do yourself a favour and step inside for lunch between the hours of 12:00 and 14:00. Make sure you put on plenty of sunscreen, tans can look healthy, but red peeling alien skin will ruin your holiday on many levels.
- Drink plenty of water both during the day and at night, the hot weather combined with heavy nights on the booze are likely to leave you in danger of dehydration.
- Believe it or not there is a whole lot more to do in Magaluf than drink. Why not take a few days off the sauce, hire a car and explore?
There are so many things to see and do in Magaluf, you can try go-karting, underwater diving, jet skiing, windsurfing or why not visit Western Water Park?
Magaluf is certainly a place where magical holidays can happen. Wish you were here!
