Magaluf Attractions Guide
Magaluf is most famous for its notorious nightlife and crazy clubs. But there’s a tamer yet fun side to the place, which leaves people wanting more.
The beauty of places in and around Magaluf can be explored in unusual ways like on horseback, rollerblades, cycles, buggies and practically everything you can imagine. Depending upon your budget and interest all these activities can be employed as functional but ways to get around. To get around the splendid waters in style, boats, catamarans, sailboats and such are available for hire. But, if that’s more than what your wallet can handle, cruises are easy and affordable alternates. Swimming and snorkeling are timeless favourites and perfect for people that don’t have experience with scuba-diving. Other on-the-beach activities include universal favourites like doughnuts, banana boat rides, paragliding, jet skiing, water skiing, windsurfing. But the Nemo submarine is the unanimous choice of children who want to get up-close with the sea life. Another favourite of children is the Pirates show. The show is a major draw of the Pirates Beach Bar and Grill. But once the children are entertained and put to bed, an adult version of the show is also performed.
Speed demons love to get behind a go-kart at the Karting Competición or just check out the pros from the stands. Quads are another great way to hit the road hard with friends or by yourself.
Theme parks are found all over the region. From the challenging Western Water Park to the massive Aqualand there are plenty of ways to keep the child in you entertained. By undertaking a drive to Puerto Portals one can reach Marine Land, which is extremely popular for its dolphin, sea lion and parrot shows. I Magaluf, you can also find The Sling Shot and Bungee Rocket. This is tallest slingshot on Earth and can make the most ardent thrill seekers think twice.
While most people come to Magaluf to pass the night away on a dance floor, one can enjoy the finer side of dancing. At the Pickles Ballroom and Dance Studio you can train in many styles of dancing like Ballroom, Latin American, Salsa, Argentine Tango, Ballet, Tap, Stage and Latin-in-Line.
To test your luck and go home with some extra cash, roll the dice at The Gran Casino Mallorca, the island’s only casino. Other than the tables you can hit one of their many live shows and events.
