What is the Magaluf Strip?
The "Magaluf strip", known locally as the Punta Ballena, refers to the strip of bars and clubs which run parallel to the Magaluf beach. The Magaluf Strip is located on a hill filled with lit-up neon bars, massive night clubs, fast food joints, tattoo shops and even a vast Bungee ball amusement ride! It is paradise. This may be the most famous strip of nightlife in Europe, with holidaymakers from all over Europe. The majority of holidaymakers s are British, Spanish, Swedish, French, Israeli and Italian.
When does the Magaluf strip open and close?
The Magaluf Strip opens on April 1st, with the bars opening their doors first. The weekends are typically busy in April and May, with stag and hen groups flocking to Magaluf for their last night of freedom. Typically Tokio Joes is the first nightclub in Magaluf to open in April, followed by Boomerang and Bananas, which usually open in May. It should be noted that the bars on the Magaluf strip could easily be confused for nightclubs in their own right as they all have DJs and dance floors but generally close at 4 am, whereas the clubs stay open until 6 am. Magaluf enjoys its peak season in June and July when students break up from college and university and visit for their summer break; in august, there is a little drop in the capacity as the price of the flights increases.August usually sees more Italians and French partygoers joining in the fun.
In September, the Magaluf strip stays relatively busy with an older crowd and the stag and hens typically come back for September and October. The bars on the strip typically close on Halloween each year, and the majority stay closed throughout the winter, although there are a few bars, such as Prince William, 3 Lions pub and Eastenders bar, which stay open all year around.
The Magaluf Strip officially runs from Plaza bar at the bottom of the strip all the way through to Bananas club at the top of the strip. In between these, there are over 40 bars, 5 Nightclubs, countless fast food restaurants and five tattoo shops! We will give you a low down of the best places to visit.

BCM Magaluf has been totally refurbished and is now the most fantastic-looking club In Magaluf. This new super club looks like its been plucked straight out of Ibiza and would go toe to toe with most clubs around the world for its beautiful exterior. Once you are inside you will notice that the BCM we once loved has changed with VIP sections now taking a major focus around the nightclub. This is now a VIP Superclub and looks like a millionaire's playground with Grey Goose being sent to tables in BCM Cars with sparklers for everyone to see. This new concept is a welcome change and shows that Magaluf is moving in the right direction to appeal to clubbers from all ages, all nationalities. Back in the day BCM Magaluf used to be a place you could visit in a vest and flossys; however this new VIP feel feels more like a Mykonos Vibe so dress to impress if you are visiting BCM. We would also recommend getting a table at one of the many VIP areas in the club as at least one-fifth of the club will have that luxury!
The toilets in BCM Magaluf have been a massive hit with inspiration from HI in Ibiza; these toilets have DJ's
playing in the bathrooms, perhaps a great place to meet people and boogie whilst waiting for your friends!
BCM Magaluf has had a fantastic roster in 2022 with DJs such as Solardo, Hannah Wants, Deborah De Luca,
Fisher all hitting the super club and proved hug energies all the way through the summer. We are waiting to find
out the BCM Line up for Magaluf 2023 but we are sure it will be as equally spectacular as in 2022! Danny
Howard is expected to keep his weekly residency bringing over the best Tech House Djs every single week.
We think that everyone should experience BCM once on the Magaluf holiday.
BEST VALUE FOR MONEY:
You can't argue with the Magaluf Strip for value for
money; every bar is competing with each other, so
you get the best deals the you're on the Magaluf
Strip. This gets even better if you have a Magaluf
Ultimate Package Wristband as you get discounts
in bars, restaurants and on activities such as
waiving your Magaluf wristband. The Magaluf
Square is more premium, so if you're looking for a
nicer venue for a cocktail, we recommend the
square. BCM Is more expensive. The best way to
experience the Magaluf Strip is on the Magaluf
Ultimate Package, which includes all the best
BEST PLACE FOR VIP
There's no question the best VIP areas in Magaluf
are inside the BCM nightclub especially if you
choose to get a VIP booth positioned behind a
famous DJ! There are options on Magaluf Strip
which is excellent if you want more of a chilled vibe,
but if you want crazy, then BCM is your best bet!
There is no better atmosphere than the Magaluf Strip, and it is buzzing every night of the summer from around 9 pm every night until 6 am. People moving from bar to bar or on the events, it feels like something crazy happens every minute. This is what summer is all about warm summer nights and everyone living their best lives.
The best events are located on the Magaluf Strip,
The White Party, Zoo Magaluf, Full Moon Party and
the MCP Nightclub hosted parties such as the
Foam party and the Paint party are unrivalled.
Magaluf BCM does host different DJs and live acts
but not as much variety as on the Magaluf Strip.
BEST PLACES TO EAT:
There is no doubt the best place to grab a bite to
eat is in Magaluf Square, and a great variety means
that everyone in your group can order from different
restaurants but still sit together and enjoy each
other's company. The square is buzzing in the early
evening as the night draws in. It's the perfect place
to eat. The strip has a few cheap eats but save
these for on the way home after a big night out!
We believe the best cocktails in Magaluf are served
at the IVY Lab in Magaluf Square. You have to visit
to see for yourself. There are other options on the
Magaluf Strip, with Stereo Temple coming a close
second and Varda Bar coming third. BCM is not
have a cocktail drinking vibe.
