When is the Magaluf strip open?
Magaluf is a summer holiday resort and is open from March to October every year. However, depending on what kind of holiday you are looking for also depends on when is the best time to visit the Magaluf strip.
During these months you can get the best deals on hotels. During the week can be a little quiet but if you are coming for a Magaluf weekender, these months are the best time to come on a stag do or hen party. We recommend booking your Magaluf event tickets before you arrive using Magaluf Stag and Hen.
The busiest months are from June to start of September. This time is known as high season. It is the most popular time to visit the Magaluf strip, but also the most expensive. However, there are more Magaluf events during this time so you may find more activities available to book during your holiday.
During March and October, the Magaluf strip is only half open with just a small selection of bars and restaurants. It is still a good time to visit but expect a more quiet atmosphere.
Finally, between November and February, the Magaluf strip is closed. Very few hotels are open and no bars, nightclubs or restaurants.

Things to know about the Magaluf strip
Magaluf is generally a very safe resort. The Magaluf strip is patrolled by the local police and Guardia Civil. However, with all major clubbing resorts, there are a few simple rules you should follow to keep you and your friends safe.
- Take it easy. In Magaluf there are no measurements for drinks. This means your vodka and coke is going to be a lot stronger than back at home. Be responsible with your drinking and take your time. The Magaluf strip is open until 4am with nightclubs closing at 6am. So there is no need to rush.
- Look after your friends. Never let a friend walk back to your hotel alone. Especially if you see that they have had too much to drink. Make sure to look after each other.
- Avoid the beach or dark places. Again, Magaluf has very little trouble, but it still is a very busy tourist resort. Avoid going to the beach at night or dark streets as you would with any busy city.
- Respect the police. If there is any trouble, the police will step in. Also listen to what they say and if you are not involved its best to keep away. The police have a very difficult job of controlling thousands of people in one street. If you need assistance, they are there to help you. There is also a dedicated Guardia Civil office at the start of the Magaluf strip. This can be found next to Stereo and The Magaluf Square.
- Respect the rules in Spain. There are certain rules posted around the Magaluf strip. These include no drinking in the street and always wearing a shirt. Make sure to respect these rules or be prepared to pay a fine.
- Bars close at 4am and nightclubs at 6am. During high season, the street can become very busy at 4am. If this makes you uncomfortable, make sure to leave the bar at around 3:30am to avoid the crowds.
- PRs and promoters. Each venue has a team of PRs designed to lure you into their venue. If you are in a group, some good deals can be made. But remember, Magaluf does not promote heavy drinking or 2-4-1 deals.
Its also good to book your event tickets before you arrive. Events and activities can sell out weeks in advance. Most Magaluf events can be booked with only a deposit and when booked through Go Magaluf, come with a refund guarantee.
