Magaluf is a lively & well-known tourist destination in the Palma Bay area of Majorca. Being one of the 'wildest resorts' in the world, Magaluf is a favorite holiday destination for more than one million fun-loving and sun seeking party-goers every year. These include young singles who are looking to party all night with cheap drinks, whilst enjoying the stunning local beaches during the day. Located only 17 km from Palma de Mallorca, Magaluf is also just a 25 minute drive from the airport, making it that little bit more convenient.
With over 300 days of sunshine a year, Magaluf is the perfect beach holiday spot. Luckily, most hotels, bars and clubs are air-conditioned, making the heat a bit more bearable for visitors who are used to cold climates. However, the nights can be chilly in winter, and there was an unusual ten centimeters of snow on February 4, 2012.
