Magaluf is the prefered destination for British looking for fun. It is, in fact, a British village in to Mallorca. More than hundreds of bars & discos and a wide choice of cheap accommodations and restaurants make this part of Majorca the favourite for many young people and, in fact, a large number of them come every year to discover Magaluf's life.

Its real name is not really Magaluf, but Magalluf (note the doble l). However, many people knows it by the first.

Magaluf is a little bit of crazy, fun, drink, nightlife, party, sun, beach, water sports... or better if we say it's just a mix of all together but on steroids. Impossible to be there and be bored.

June, July and August is the best time to visit Magaluf, but not just for the weather. This is also the time when it is more fun and lively. Avoid going there out season (November to May) or expect to be you and your mate alone.

During the day you will find many activities around there like paracending doughnuting, jet skiing, karting races, scuba diving or beaching (just lay there and watch the girls/boys around).

Also, in the same area, you will find Aqualand, a water park suitable both for adults and children. If you do go, take care and get some sun cream with you or you will be what locally is know as a "gamba" (prawn, you simply will become red). It is open from May to August and the cost is just about 18 Euro (approx. 12 pounds) for the whole journey.
