Magaluf beach on Majorca is a party hotspot perfect for a lads holiday or stag weekend

The mancation is known as the lads holiday in Britain, a ritual that is followed by many teens and young adults around England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland.

Legions of men from the UK head out to Europe on their summer holidays in search of the essentials of a lads holiday, sun, sea, music, a few drinks and a selection of women from all over Europe.

How to Get To Magaluf?

Top of the lads holiday destination list is Magaluf, the mecca of all things lad’s holiday and it would also make for a fantastic stag weekend party destination too. While it is significantly less expensive than Ibiza, it is far busier than many other European resorts such as Kavos and Aiya Napa in Cyprus, Magaluf is an extremely popular choice for British travelers seeking to get down and have some fun. Majorca is very easy to get to from most European cities and guys can fly directly into Palma. Alternatively, you can take a ferry to the island from Barcelona or Valencia, a trip that will take about three hours.

Magaluf is situated on Balearic Island Majorca, which sits to the east of Spain in the Mediterranean Ocean. Some people get confused when they see it written in two different ways - Majorca is the Spanish spelling while Mallorca is the Catalan spelling of the island though both cultures pronounce it the same way. Majorca is a holiday resort that has welcomed tourists from all over the world for more than fifty years, and is expected to welcome one million tourists in the summer of 2011. Magaluf is one of Majorca’s most popular resorts and earns its title as the party capital of Majorca, and is beginning to seriously rival its Balearic Brother Ibiza as the party capital of Europe. Here is why Magaluf is top of the lad’s holiday list.
