Getting around on foot in Magaluf isn’t going to be any problem – all the best clubs and bars are along one massive strip, and the hotels and clubs are close to the beach. If you do fancy a cab, we’d recommend negotiating a price before you get in, to avoid them trying to rip you off. If you’re thinking of travelling a little further out to Palma, a bus takes about 20 minutes and costs around €3.
There’s no shortage of souvenir shops around Magaluf, so if you’re hoping to take some tourist tat home with you as a reminder of the weekend, there’s plenty of choice. It doesn’t have to be fridge magnets and novelty mugs though; head a little further afield and there are a wider range of options for the discerning shopper.
Spending a day lounging on one of Magaluf’s gorgeous beaches is easily the most popular way to spend time in Magaluf – and with miles and miles of white sand and blue sea, it’s no wonder. Grab a towel and a book and get sunning yourself for a few hours, or take down a ball and start up a game of volley ball – a day at the beach can be as relaxed or active as you want.
Mallorca’s only theme park isn’t quite Thorpe Park or Alton Towers, but with 5D rides, laser pistols, upside down houses and mini golf, it’s still a very good day out. It’s also one of the most popular attractions in Magaluf (once you’ve finished baking on the beach, obviously).
Nearly everyone you run in to is going to have a good grasp of English, so it’s unlikely you’ll have to do too many embarrassing mimes whilst you’re out there. Just in case, though, here are some of the more useful Spanish phrases for you to learn on the flight out.
Estoy soltera. I’m single. (Just to let those Spanish lads know.)
¿Hay algún buen bar cerca de aquí? Is there a good bar around here? (No point wasting your time on not-good bars.)
Dos vasos de vino tinto, por favour. Two glasses of red wine, please.
Quisiera una botella de vino blanco, por favor. I would like a bottle of white wine, please.
Vamos al disco. Let's go to a club. (When you’re tired of the good bars.)
Quisiera un shot de tequila, por favor. I would like a shot of tequila, please.
Estoy reventada. I’m partied out. (You could need it…)
Me voy a relajar a la playa. I’m going to chill by the pool.
Dónde están los briks de sangría a un euro? Can you please direct me to you €4 cartons of sangria?
