With 350 miles of magnificent coastline available in Majorca, most obviously Magaluf offers great opportunities for scuba diving lovers. Crystal clear water and a beautiful underwater environment make it more attractive for scuba divers.
Magaluf has two diving centres named “Big Blue Diving Mallorca” and “Norway Dive”. Both these centres are located in Torrenova, Palmanova, 1.5 km away from Magaluf.
The Big Blue diving centre is for professional scuba divers and the Norway Dive is an authorized PADI dive resort and one of the world’s largest educational organisation for recreational diving.
Magaluf is a great place to become PADI or SSI qualified and has some beautiful dive sites including a shipwreck and caves.
BCM Planet Dance
Magaluf has lots of pub/bar crawls and small clubs. However, they pale in comparison to the large, famous BCM venue. The BCM Planet Dance located in Magaluf offers 3 floors for various types of music. It’s only open during the ‘on-season’ in summer.
Upstairs, it has Europe’s largest, spectacular 3D Laser shows, sexy podium dancers, & ice-cold Megatron that makes it the ultimate euphoric party atmosphere.
Downstairs, you can experience lively and crazy parties like a foam party, water party, paint party, washing machine party etc.
It also offers the VIP Lounge, a big open terrace, a smoking area and bars like Baywatch.
Home to DJs regularly, it’s expensive, but no lads’/lasses’ trip is complete without a visit to BCM, one of the wildest, booziest things to do in Magaluf.
Beaches – Things to Do in Magaluf
With an average July-August temperature of 30°C, one of the more relaxing things to do in Magaluf is sipping a cold drink on the beach.
Magaluf has loads of lovely beaches for sunbathing and sand castles. On some beaches, you’ll find watersports, like paddle boards to rent and peddle boats with slides built on the back of the boats.

Pirates Adventure is a memorable night.
A very popular show with world-class acrobatics, the pirates adventure show in Magaluf has amazed over 3 million people during the last 30 years. This show can be enjoyed with all the family members. Whereas Magaluf also offers another show called Pirates Reloaded which is an adult-only show. The Pirates Adventure show carries a fantastic reputation and thus becomes a must-watch when you are in Magaluf.
You get a meal and there’s a bar to wash it down. There’s also a choice of theatre experience:
Pirates Adventure is a family-friendly, swashbuckling evening of adventure and fun.
Pirates Reloaded is an adults-only show, filled with booze, innuendos, and a much more explicit plot. It’s one of the very much NOT family-friendly things to do in Magaluf.
Western Water Park

This one is considered to be the best water park among the three water parks in Mallorca. It offers all kinds of water slides, for small children to the greatest daredevils. It also offers impressive houses and spectacular shows.

Being into extreme/water sports, BladeRunner was the standout highlight of my trip. It’s a converted lifeboat turned speed boat, with 600 horsepower. The seats resemble those of rollercoasters, placed at the boat’s front with handles to grab on for dear life.
Once it leaves the harbour, you skim the waves, getting air time and crashing back down in a soaking wet splash. You visit a cave, admire the cliffs, then stop in a cove to do paddle boarding, jump off the boat, try mini-submarine things, and snorkel.
Sol Wave House
As well as being a hotel, SolWave House has an artificial wave machine that you can surf. Magaluf isn’t known for its huge surf crowd, because the ocean usually stays pretty calm. So, get to the wave house, have a drink, take your clothes off and fall over a few times/learn to surf here.
SOL Wave House All Suites offers free parking, a hairdresser, and a swimming pool with spectacular views from the rooms. It also offers infinity pools, Bali beds and Sun Decks that make it a modern beachfront hotel. Located very close to the city centre, enjoy this luxury if you are in Magaluf.
Oceans Beach Club

Located at the centre of Magaluf, Ocean Beach Club is the longest-running, home to the biggest pool parties and number one daytime venue in Magaluf. It also hosts some biggest events such the Champagne Pool Party and the infamous Magaluf Full Moon Party.
Oceans beach club is also for a relaxing (perhaps hungover) day lounging around with drinks, on a bed (if you’re loaded), dancing by the pool to party tunes.
You can pay for just entrance, drinks packages, or a bed for the day which includes spending money during the day.
