Nestled in the Bay of Palma on the south west coast of Mallorca, Magaluf's sheltered location and wide arc of white sandy shore plays host to crystal clear Balearic waters. The climate averages a perfect 25 degrees Celsius in summer and never dips below 10 degrees throughout the year. The cliffs, rocky outcrops and pine forests covering the island also offer plenty of opportunity to get out and explore its natural beauty. Transport links include an extensive bus network which makes it easy to reach all corners of Mallorca throughout the day and night.
