Magaluf and Palmanova

Magaluf: The big British holiday resort on Mallorca. Magaluf consists of a beach, pubs, nightclubs and big hotels. It is the total opposite of a romantic and quiet town: Beer, Party, Sex and sometimes fights are the main things people do here. What Ballermann represents for the Germans, is what Magaluf represents for the British. There are also quite a few Scandinavians and Irish in Magaluf.  Those looking forward to have a few days of partying can find a room in Magaluf easily, expecially out of high season.

Most holiday makers in Magaluf are young here and the latest music is played in the discos. Some of the clubs are the biggest on Mallorca and have up to 5000 visitors each night, many of whom stay until sunset. In winter it is much quieter, but many of the British and Irish pubs are open. Going clubbing in Magaluf is not cheap - the entrance fees are high. Arond Magaluf there are some big amusement parks and theme parks. The Aquapark is the biggest and the most famous of these.


Palma Nova: This town has grown up together with Magaluf. It is similar to Magaluf but not so extreme. The crowds in Palma Nova are a bit more international, but the English are also here the majority. Palma Nova has a nice port and is geared towards younger people, as well as young families.
