Summary of the Beach Inspectors
The British party centre of Magaluf in the south-west of Majorca has a wide range of options on offer. You can spend your holiday here relaxing on a well-kept, sandy beach, you can let off steam with some parasailing or jet skiing or you can take a boat trip to the nearby island of Sa Porrassa. The exclusive ambience of the beach clubs and restaurants lining the lovely new beach promenade is intentionally enhancing Magaluf's appeal to a more sophisticated crowd. There's always plenty to see and do here!

Playa de Magaluf - Changing its image as a British party centre

It's mainly holidaymakers from the UK that take up residence here in the south-west of Majorca around the party centre of Playa de Magaluf. Numerous hotels line the 900 metre long, well-kept bay. From these you have an excellent view over the island of Sa Porrassa, a nature reserve around which you can dive and snorkel. It's best to book a guided boat tour to take you safely to the island and back.

During the summer months Playa de Magaluf is very crowded and the noise level is consequently high. We were surprised by the civilised behaviour of the party tourists, who were predominantly British and were hardly noticeable on the beach during the day. This could be down to the fact that the area has been trying hard to change its image in recent years. Playa de Magaluf seems to be gradually adapting to a more exclusive clientèle. The chic beach clubs, such as Zhero Boathouse and Nikki Beach Club, intimate restaurants and cocktail lounges right on the promenade are testament to this. In the evenings the party scene is increasingly moving into the resort.

On the beach you will find a wide range of water sports activities to make your day a real experience - banana boats, fly fishing, jet skiing, parasailing, pedal boats, UFO, water skiing and a floating assault course to climb, slide and trampoline on. On a party boat you can ride through the bay, partying and dancing with a view over the beautiful Majorcan coastline.

The new promenade stretches from one end of the beach to the other. Here you will find a wide range of restaurants and cafés with something for everyone. Behind it is an area with pubs, clubs, restaurants and shops. Entertainment is top of the agenda here.

Every beach is unique. Apart from how the beach looks and its surroundings it is mainly the people and the amenities here which give the beach its character.
