Don’t get stuck this summer: sun, beach and lots of fun

Sometimes you spend so much time trying to organize your holidays, that finally you don’t enjoy them. For this reason we suggest you a friends getaway to a sun, beach and entertaining destination. This 3 magic words belong to a popular destination in Majorca: Magaluf, in the West Coast of Majorca with spectacular beaches and a great nightlife area where the party never ends.

Magaluf is easily accessible thanks to its great connections with Palma’s airport (only 25 minutes drive) and its orography, full of beaches, pine groves and mountains, golf courses… Not to mention it’s excellent services. In reference to gastronomy, there are many restaurants oriented to British tourists-main tourists in the area, and you should taste the gastronomic specialities which are already part of Majorca’s culture.

In reference to accommodation, you will find everything you need: from family hotels at Magaluf Beach to hotels for friends between Magaluf and Palmanova. One of the best hotels due to its renovation and new modern design is The Fergus Resort, by Fergus Hotels. This 4-star family hotel in Magaluf offers an innovative accommodation with high quality facilities. It’s a design hotel in Majorca oriented to travellers looking for entertaining and cool places close to the beach and all the services. Near this new style hotel by Fergus Hotels, in this area of Magaluf some of the best themed hotels in Majorca are being completely renewed as Sol Hotels by Melia.

Despite Magaluf attracts mass-tourism, it’s the perfect destination for those travellers looking for customised, package and affordable holidays.

For this reason, it’s a popular destination for friends’ getaways in Majorca, bachelor parties, romantic weekend escapes or family holidays with kids.

Magaluf belongs to Calvia municipality and it’s one of the most popular destinations in Majorca, as many celebrities have their second houses there. Magaluf is close to Santa Ponsa and Palmanova, both oriented to family holidays with children and senior travellers on low season.

Magaluf offers panoramic views of Palma Bay with more than 1,7 kilometres of beach in front of the hotel zone, so whichever hotel you choose, you will enjoy it for sure.

The charm of Playa del Matorral

Playa del Matorral is one of the most famous beaches in Fuerteventura.  Situated in the most southern part of the island, which was before a land separated from the rest of the island by a small sand strip, it offers a long area with fine sand and a semi-wild environment that gives it the appearance of an almost pristine beach in Fuerteventura.

In the last years, Playa del Matorral has been recovering its real natural charm, it has started the process of ecological restoration of the entire area that goes from the hotels in Jandia Beach to the lighthouse, almost to Morro Jable, which is the most southern town bordering on the sandy area.

After walking its 4 km of length, you arrive to the swimming area known as Playa Gaviotas, less wild and more ideal for families. There you can find all type of services and first-class hotels such as Iberostar Fuerteventura Palace, a perfect  accommodation for travelling with children, where adults have their own space and thousand of possibilities for enjoying their time even in a trip with family.

Very close to these hotels in Playa Gaviotas, we find El Saladar de Jandía, a place that represents one the main reasons by which El Matorral is considered an ecological reserve.  It is a very comfortable fine sand beach for walking next to the sea and, even though it is very visited in summer, its spaciousness allows to placidly do a long walk by the seashore.

Playa del Matorral preserves an area where nudism can be practised.  Now we see few nudists and the family sector has gained ground, but anyone can enjoy one of the few nudist beaches that remain in the south of Fuerteventura.  The family area is separated from the nudist area by the Jandia lighthouse.

Playa del Matorral offers all types of services, from car park to hammocks and sunshades, without losing, of course, the charm of natural beach that makes it, among other beaches in the island, one of must visits, at least once in your lifetime.
