Stags in Mags
If you were hoping for a sun soaked weekend with a bit of flamenco and sample some paella on your Magaluf stag do, you're definitely in the wrong place. Spain's most infamous resort is all about the insane, intense partying, with the sort of electrifying nightlife that's as hot as the weather in Magaluf. The clubbing scene is literally second to none, as the resort hosts Europe's largest super club. Magaluf has spent the last decade building itself in to the premier partying spot for British lads who want to get out of the country and experience something incredible on their holiday - what could be more perfect for a stag do? Well, there's always the three colossal beaches, the clear Balearic sea, and the temperature in the 30s at the height of summer. If you're looking to treat your mate to a world-class stag do, there's no place like Magaluf.
It's not all about the nightlife (although come on, a lot of it is). There's plenty to do during the day as well. When you're done nursing your hangover, there's watersports, beach games, booze cruises, and a boat-load of other activities to enjoy too. Take a quick flick through our suggestions to see what you'd like to do on your Magaluf stag weekend - once you've exhausted sunbathing around a pool, of course.
When's good to go?
Magaluf is strictly a summer time destination. Come winter the clubs close for the season, leaving behind a party free ghost town, rather than the usual buzzing party hotspot. Over winter you and the boys will still find a few of the clubs open, but the best of Magaluf will have shut down for the season. Luckily, although Magaluf is definitely at its premium during July and August, the summer months go on for longer than you'd think. Clubs generally will open for the season around the end of May, and stay open until mid October. Around Easter is also a pretty busy time, if you can get over then.
Tap water in Spain is safe to drink but tastes terrible.
Where should we stay?
We're presuming you'll want to be near the biggest, busiest party spots around - and on a Magaluf stag do, that means near The Strip (or Carrer de la Punta Ballena, to give it its full name). Any hotels or apartments in central Magaluf should be easily within walking distance of The Strip, as well as close to all the main shopping, restaurants, and bars around town. As a bonus, any accommodation you book with StagWeb comes with a few bonuses too (besides the fantastic location and excellent value, obviously). Chilled champagne on arrival is the least of it - check out our accommodation page for more information.
Getting the lads in
Magaluf doesn't have its own airport, but Mallorca does - Palma de Mallorca. Only a 20 minute drive from Magaluf, it's easily your best (and only) way of getting the lads on island. Plenty of airports will fly out to the holiday hotspot, particularly around summer - cheap options like easyJet or Ryanair will go from cities like Manchester, Birmingham, Glasgow, Newcastle, Edinburgh, Bristol, and Liverpool, as well as London airports like Stansted, Heathrow and Gatwick. Essentially, wherever the boys are coming in from, you'll have no trouble getting out and in for your Magaluf stag do.
