There is a reason for Palmanova’s and Magaluf’s popularity: the four main beaches between Palmanova and Magaluf are broad, beautiful and immaculately maintained. The lavish sweeps of fine white sand, in parts shaded by strategically planted pines and palms, are undeniably tempting. And, to be fair, the development behind them could be considerably worse.


Such is the competition between the scores of large-scale hotels in these parts that a little research and forward planning should net you a good deal.


Fast-food franchises, full English breakfasts, pizza, burgers, kebabs and a light dusting of Spanish food are what keeps Magaluf and Palmanova's partygoers on their feet.

Drinking & Nightlife

While restless young Germans party at the Platja de Palma's beer gardens, their British equivalents cut loose in the nightspots of Magaluf. This is big stag- and hen-night territory and the drinking antics of the Brits in Magaluf have become legendary (for the wrong reasons). The action is concentrated around the north end of Carrer de Punta Ballena, where pubs, clubs and bars are piled on top of one another.
