1. Magaluf

Magaluf, probably the best-known Majorca nightlife destination, keeps going from strength to strength. BCM Planet, the biggest and most famous of the Majorca nightclubs, is an all-night super-club that frequently hosts the finest DJs and dance nights in the industry. For a broader experience, explore our guide on things to do in Magaluf, showcasing a variety of activities beyond its renowned nightlife.

It’s a must-visit at least once in your life. The Strip, or Punta Ballena, is where the party’s at, home to legends such as Boomerang, an underground venue hosting live acts, Bananas, a purveyor of fine electro and house since the ‘80s, and Tokio Joes, a buzzing R&B and hip hop venue.

Although this town was born to club, there are an increasing number of glamorous bars to sip cocktails as the sun sets, such as the Zero Boathouse, Nikki Beach Club and Rooftop Nine. The latter is actually inside Sol House The Studio, a 4-star adults-only venue with two pools, a restaurant and several other bars. It creates its own party atmosphere, hosting pool parties, theme parties, DJ sets and acoustic concerts.

To be at the heart of the action, just steps from BCM, head to Samos Hotel. It’s an all-inclusive resort with two large pools, a spa, an international buffet restaurant and three bars.

2. Palma Nova

Just along the coast from Magaluf – a mecca for clubs and nightlife in Majorca – Palma Nova is a destination for sun, sea, sand and a healthy helping of bars and pubs too.

It’s certainly quieter than its neighbour, but if you want to try out the Magaluf strip one evening, it’s an easy party bus ride away. The main offering here is a selection of classy bars, restaurants and cocktail joints stretched out along the back of the beautiful sandy beach. It’s great for a relaxed night out, with plenty of sports bars, Irish bars and English-style pubs.

Two popular dance venues are Banana Joe’s, with a hip, younger crowd, and Reflex Disco, a retro-themed bar and club playing old-school classics. Check into a balcony room for your stay here at Sol Palmanova, an all-inclusive establishment with four outdoor pools and a buffet restaurant, snack bar and lounge bar.

Alua Hawaii Mallorca is a chic 4-star hotel and apartment complex with gorgeous views over the bar. Besides the pool, with a vista over the Mediterranean, there’s also a restaurant, chill-out terrace and panoramic bar, which has a lovely atmosphere for evening cocktails.

3. Alcudia

Alcudia, while not as well known to outsiders, is recognised among locals as a Majorca nightlife hotspot, boasting a variety of easy-going bars and clubs for all-night revelry.

It's also an ideal destination for the young ones looking for things to do in Majorca for young adults. For a family-friendly yet fun evening, try Pedro Mas Y Reus, also known as Dollar Street, packed with activities from restaurants, late-night creperies, and ice-cream spots, to Irish bars, English-style pubs, and the infamous Goodfellas music bar.

For those seeking a wilder night with club vibes, the ever-popular Banana Club is perfect, being a complex of clubs that attracts a younger crowd and is surrounded by late-night takeaways. For a more upscale evening, the Marina or Port of Alcudia offers a good mix of chic restaurants, cocktail bars, and more laid-back late-night joints.

Accommodation options include the colourful 3-star Bellevue Club, featuring spacious apartments and rooms, eight swimming pools, a restaurant, and an on-site Irish bar, or the chic 4-star Innside Alcudia, just a few minutes’ walk from the beach, with modern rooms, two outdoor pools, restaurants, and a pool bar.

4. Santa Ponsa

Santa Ponsa is known for being quieter than Magaluf, making it a great choice for families and mixed groups. Nonetheless, it’s a fabulous Majorca nightlife spot, whether you’re seeking clubs, live entertainment, sports bars or pubs with dedicated kids’ activities.

Ramon de Montcada is the strip, home to most of the big nightclubs and dance venues, including Disco Inferno, Kitty O’Sheas and Fama. Basement Club is a popular spot that often parties until 6 a.m. Families tend to enjoy The Square (Los Jardines) on the Costa de la Calma side of the bay, where you can find bars, restaurants, late night shops and plenty of family-friendly entertainment.

The Santa Ponsa area is also known for its party boats – be sure to book early if cruises with sunsets, drinks and DJs are your thing. Why not stay at Jutlandia Family Resort? It’s a complex of modern apartments a short walk from the beach, offering kitchenettes, a terrace or balcony and multiple pools on site. The Zafiro Rey Don Jaime is another 4-star spot close to the heart of the action. There’s an indoor pool and spa, an outdoor pool and a sky pool, as well as several bars and a buffet restaurant.
