Ibiza and the Balearic Islands Sights



Platja de Magaluf

Platja de Magaluf Review

At the west end of the Bay of Palma, a 15-km (9-mile) hop from the city, Magaluf is Majorca's Party Central and the site of one of the island's best beaches—a 1.5-km (1-mile) -long gentle curve of fine white sand that rates a Blue Flag designation for cleanliness and safety. The water is calm and clear, without strong currents or sudden drop-offs. A promenade of shops, bars, and restaurants runs the length of the beach. A favorite with young British and Scandinavian tourists, the beach is also first-rate for families—especially in the mornings, before the clubbers roll out of bed—but the town itself is pretty rowdy most of the time. The little knob of Black Lizard Island, about 440 yards offshore, is a challenging swim. Amenities: food and drink; lifeguards; parking (fee); showers; toilets; water sports. Best for: swimming; walking.
