Party central without the price tag
A flight time of two hours and 30 minutes is all that stands between you and sunny Magaluf.
Magaluf – as with most holidays in Majorca – is all about sun, sun, sun. The beaches, the watersports and especially the nightlife keep holidaymakers very much in love with this Balearic Island, while penny-pinching deals help keep it supremely affordable.
Cheap things to do around Magaluf
Magaluf might be known for its party potential, but that’s not all this sun-soaked resort has to offer. Another of its top draws is one that’s crazy popular and totally free to visit – we’re talking about the beach, of course.
Magaluf’s main set of shores cover a long, curvy bay of powdery white sands that positively teem with holidaymakers in the summertime. There’s good snorkelling potential here too, so you’d be wise to hire a cheap set of gear from a local diving club and head beneath the waves.
And while nights out might scream empty pockets otherwise, in Magaluf it’s possible to hit the town without taking out a second mortgage on your house. There are deals you can snag that’ll help you save on club entry, and once you’re inside, the drinks are free-flowing and pretty darn cheap.
How to get a great Magaluf holiday deal
To get a great deal on holidays to Magaluf, keep your cool until eight weeks before your intended departure. That’s when the best money-saving steals surface.
What kind of holiday you’re after will dictate whether or not you should choose Self Catering or All Inclusive. If you’re hitting Magaluf for the nightlife, Self Catering is probably your best option, as you’ll be out and about anyway and can save a little cash making your own meals.
However, if you plan to spend a good amount of time around your hotel pool nibbling on snacks, All Inclusive is the way to go.
If you’re set on a cheap and cheerful holiday but still aren’t sure where exactly to go, consider other vibrant destinations in the sun like Ayia Napa or Benidorm, both of which have incredible nightlife scenes.
But if it’s just the sand you’re after, holidays in Tenerife or Costa Almeria will do the trick. In the meantime, here are our top hotels for cheap holidays to Magaluf.
Once you set foot in this mega hotel, you'll never want – or have – to leave. It's set right next door to Magaluf's popular and uber family-friendly Katmandu Park, and staying here will get you free access to the splash park and 4D activities. Also on deck are three swimming pools and evening entertainment, though the beach and downtown Magaluf – including its extensive nightlife scene – are less than a five-minute walk away.
This adults-only hotel comes with a view of the beach from its hillside locale, with an outdoor drinks terrace to match. There's archery and water polo in and around the pool, plus bingo and live music at the bar come sundown. But if the hotel is just your home base for beach or party holidays, you'll be pleased to know that both are less than a 10-minute stroll away.
