Last year the island of Majorca attracted more than 2 million visitors from the United Kingdom, the highest number seen since the statistics began to be published in 2010. There are sure to be a number of contributing factors, but it is likely due to the current economic climate, the availability of holidays to Majorca, the pleasant temperatures, and the selection of activities and amenities that are present in the island resorts.
This last point is certainly one to note, and will be something that you will want to look into if you are due to visit in the island in the coming months. A lot of holidaymakers pick resorts based on what is on offer – after all, it can be a lot of fun when there are events and activities available around the clock. For this reason, Magaluf and Palma Nova are the hotspots for many UK travellers, and it isn’t hard to see why.
If you are visiting either of these neighbouring resorts this year, check out what’s on in terms of nightlife and events – you’ll find it hard to be disappointed…
Foodies will be spoiled in the resort of Palma Nova as there are so many restaurants to choose from. New establishments pop up each year, meaning nearly every cuisine is on offer – whether you are travelling as a couple or a group, there is definitely something for everyone. Mealtimes are to be enjoyed late into the evening in Majorca, and they don’t end with the last bite of food. It is customary to sit and watch the world go by with a couple of after-dinner drinks, such as the local sangria.
There is plenty of night-time entertainment to be found too, ranging from the karaoke tribute acts to the spectacular adventure golf course. The evening is a popular time to take on the Golf Fantasia challenge as it can be tiring work in the midday sunshine. There are three 18 hole courses to take on so leave yourself enough time to do them, or do one course each night.
Just down the road is the resort of Magaluf where the bright lights announce that it is playtime for the 18-30 crowd. Those looking for a memorable evening should head to Pirates Adventure, a brilliant dinner show incorporating acrobatics, gymnastics and dancing. Of course, you can also opt to attend the 18+ Pirates Reloaded which has an “adult twist”. Linford Christie described Pirates Adventure as a “show that shouldn’t be missed”. It also has a certificate of excellence based on hundreds of positive reviews.
Perhaps the main draw of Magaluf for many people are the bars and clubs. These are the places that are known for world class DJs and legendary nights; some people are unable to draw themselves away from the festivities and only head to bed when the sun starts creeping back into the sky. Superclub BCM has its reopening party towards the end of April, and will update their event calendar closer to the lively summer months. Magaluf venue Mallorca Rocks has already announced that big acts like Tinie Tempah (1 July) and Bastille (5 August) will be playing, so don’t forget to buy your tickets ahead of time.
