Things to do in Magaluf
Contrary to reputation, there are more things to do in Magaluf than simply enjoying nights out on the town. The resort itself is surrounded by breath-taking natural landscapes and rolling hills that are perfect for exploring. Take in the coastal views that surround the area or soak up the sun on Playa de Magaluf, one of the resort’s sandy white beaches. If you fancy a brief escape from the area’s energetic sands, take a short walk along the promenade to Palma Nova, Magaluf’s next-door neighbour. Palma Nova has a sandy beach that dips gently into the sea, providing an ideal spot for families to soak up the Spanish charm.
Wine and Dine
When it comes to eating out, you’ll be spoilt for choice. Aside from plenty of fast food outlets serving quick and tasty snacks, there is an array of international cuisine on offer. Venture along the beachfront to check out Magaluf’s local seafood dishes that are coupled with great views. Authentic Spanish cuisine can also be found in the town, serving everything from tapas to tortillas and paellas to pinchitos. For tasty fusion food coupled with great atmosphere, head to Magaluf’s busy strip for a great range of eateries including BBQ, grill and Tex Mex.
Action and Adventure
Magaluf is a hot spot for those seeking adventure and there are a range of activities to ensure you have the holiday of a lifetime. Water sports are particularly popular, with jet-skiing, snorkelling and scuba diving on offer, as well as yachting facilities for budding sailors.
