It's Party Time...
4:43pm Sunday 3rd January 2010 in Travel
Cheap holidays in Majorca are synonymous with lazy days on the beach and long nights spent partying. Nowhere on the island is more popular for this than the legendary Magalluf. With over 100 bars and clubs to choose from it's impossible to visit them all, although I'm sure many people have tried.
The bars here are as diverse as the people who party here and there's a huge variety of happy hours, cocktail offers, themes and opening times. There's definitely a bar to suit every person in your group and its great fun finding out which ones you like best.
You can choose from Brit bars, Irish bars and Scottish bars, music bars, dance bars and karaoke bars, R & B, electro and indie bars, the choice is as endless as the tunes that pump out into the air all night long.
The bars and clubs are mainly clustered around one area known as the Punta Ballena Strip, or 'The Strip' for short, so it's never very far to your next drink. Most party goers start at one end and try to work their way along, not many make it but most pick out their favourites quite early on during their holidays and often stick to the same ones.
Happy hours temp you at every turn, as there is so much competition between bar owners, and more often than not drinks are given away in an attempt to entice you into their bars.
Just when you think its time to head home, think again as some of the biggest clubs in Europe are just sparking into life. One of the largest and most famous is the legendary BCM. Here you'll find world famous DJ's playing the decks with unbelievable drinks promotions, laser shows and foam parties, keeping you up until the sun comes to life on another glorious Magalluf day. If it's a different kind of dancing you prefer, then head to Heaven, the first established lap dance club in Magalluf, where the exotic dancers will entertain you until 6am every morning.
When you're all partied out its time to recharge those batteries, and what better place than on one of the most beautiful beaches in Majorca. The endless sands have often been awarded Blue Flag status for their cleanliness, safety and facilities, so you can just lie back, relax, and work on your tan. If you do feel in an energetic mood then its well worth trying some of the superb water sports on offer here. Choose from fly-fishing, doughnut rings, banana boats, water skiing, jet skiing, surfing and parasailing, or simply chill out and watch everyone else having a go.
Magalluf is the ultimate party experience and challenges hard for the 'party capital of the world' title, and hopefully you'll take home some fantastic memories from your cheap holidays in Majorca.
