It was my sisters idea a week away in the sun.. I would of preferred Ibiza having spent most of my teenage years on the white Isle , Magaluf to me was a poor mans Ibiza and I was hoping the company would make up for the resort…

We headed from London to Palma airport hopped in a taxi and headed to the centre of Magaluf and managed to find the hotel with not much bother. The hotel was located right on the beach which was lovely , packed full of tourists soaking up the sun but big enough for us to be able to plonk out selves down and enjoy the sunshine and warm waters..

After chilling out on the beach for a few hours we headed back to the hotel glammed up and headed into town.. For those who have been to Magaluf you will be aware of the amount of bars and clubs that dominate the area… There was a great choice of music which was a bonus for me as I am extremely fussy when it comes to music.. First of all we made our was to Alexs Lounge bar which was a perfect way to start the evening. We sat out on the large terrace with a large jug of Sangria enjoying the chill out tunes in the background.. After a few Sangrias we were feeling a little peckish and decided to go and venture and get some food.. However due to the numerous amount of Brits that flood the area many of the restaurants have a very limited menu for example egg and chips, fish fingers and chips , burger and chips I don’t eat this in the UK why would I want to come to Magaluf and eat it !!!

So the hunt was on to find some Spanish food we finally asked some one if there was anywhere we could eat some Spanish food and were told  that the Restaurant Las Palmeras at the end of Avinguda de Magaluf was a good place to eat Spanish meat and fish dishes. So after a bit of a walk we found the restaurant and it was actually very good we ate lots of Tapas which was needed after a long day..

We decided to head back to the hotel after diner as we were feeling pretty tired and wanted to spend the day on the beach so we walked back to the hotel… This was a lot of fun in itself and its at times like these when I am embarrassed to be British.. Now I don’t understand what happens to people when they go on holidays is it the cheap booze at €1 a shot or just the fact that we get to unwind for 2 weeks etc but the amount of chavs and drunks that litter the streets was amazing but very funny to see..

The next day we decided to head to Santa Ponsa which we got to by bus and is only about 15 minutes from Magaluf and was a lovely beach crowded but lovely soft sand and we were able to hire some sun beds and just spent the day chilling..

We decided to go Pirates in the evening which runs throughout the year in Magaluf.. The tickets were quite expensive but the show was definitely worth it.. The show is a combination of gymnastics and acrobatics telling the story of Sir Henry Morgan and his band of brave buccaneers as they battle with evil French foes to try and save the treasure..It was lots of fun and definitely a must for anyone visiting Magaluf…

After the show we were up for some drinks and headed to Mambo’s, which is part of the Bora Bora complex and is one of the main bars in Magaluf strip. I was hoping that it would be similar to Bora Bora in Ibiza but unfortunately not although Mambos had a great outdoor terrace and some good music the down side was the lap dancing poles for its customers not great for those who have consumed one to many… Anyway after a few drinks we made our way to the Red Lion pub which was packed and was probably one of the busiest bars we went to.. The atmosphere was fun however and we had a great night downing shots at the bar…

The next day feeling a little worse for where we decided to book our tickets for BCM the biggest nightclub in Magaluf for the following evening as some laziness was needed today..

We spent the day sunbathing and in the evening we just chilled out on the balcony doing some great people watching…

The next day we woke up bright and early and decided to go and have a look around the shops to see if there was anything worth buying.. There were lots of souvenir shops and we did come across the Funky Fish Shop which had lots of funky accessories and clothes in and I did manage to find some great bits and pieces for our night out in BCM…

BCM is Magalufs largest nightclub and form e it was a trip down memory lane after years working and parting in Ibiza so I was excited to be going I love large nightclubs and BCM did not disappoint…Throughout the summer months BCM attracts top dj’s from all around the world and lucky for us Eddie Halliwell was playing an old favourite of mine and my sisters

The night was awesome , the club itself is huge and the fact that when you get in its all inclusive made it great.. The lasers were great and the atmosphere was electric.. We stayed until the end and had one of the best night out in some time and what a great feeling it was coming out of a club in daylight… After doing the walk of shame back to the hotel and changing into bikinis we placed ourselves on the sun loungers by the pool of the hotel and got a good few hours kip…

The rest of the holiday was spent relaxing and we also rented a car and drove to Soller which is beautiful and only a short drive from Magaluf. Soller is situated in the middle of the Serra de Tramuntana mountain range and has some great scenery and some great restaurants it was easy for us to get to and was well worth the trip..

Magaluf is a boozy isle but it also has some great places away from the tourists hot spots.. Yes it is full of townies and chavs but no different to going out in your own home town fort he night… There is plenty to do in Magaluf even if you don’t want to get wasted every night… The beaches are lovely and the weather was perfect…
