Are you going on holiday with a group of friends? For parties and celebrations, Majorca has some of the liveliest resorts, geared up for for stag & hen parties, and big birthday bashes.
Majorca is a popular choice for young adults holidaying in groups, whether it's celebrating a special birthday or graduation, or simply for a partying holiday. Most of Majorca's major resorts welcome stag and hen parties, and although this can make for a loud and lively atmosphere, celebrations are generally good-natured and jovial.
We can't talk about this kind of holiday without mentioning Magaluf straight away - after all, it's Majorca's main nightlife hotspot, packed with music and cocktail bars, discos and clubs.
Magaluf is also a place that you will find appealing if drinking is a big part of your group holiday - so many bars here offer multi-buy drinks offers, that you'll be spoiled for choice on the boozing front. Typically you can get cheap drinks by the jug, to share with friends, whether it's beer or cocktails you fancy. Another popular offer is up-sizing to a pint, or two-for-one on bottled beers. Free shots are often given with drinks orders, especially for groups, it's an offer designed to get people into the bars.
Bear in mind that in Majorca, like so many European holiday destinations, drinks measures are generous, so if you drink spirits you get a much larger measure than you would in the UK.
If you fancy something a little different, there are plenty other resorts that have enough nightlife for group holidays and stag & hen parties. El Arenal is notable for it's lively nightlife, very popular with young German holidaymakers, it's often said to be the German equivalent of Magaluf. There is also plenty going on in Puerto Alcudia, Santa Ponsa, Paguera, or how about the city of Palma, which has a more sophisticated vibe than the party resorts.
Whichever resort you choose for your group holiday, you'll find plenty of options for accommodation (all budgets), and for eating out. Browse our resort guides for more detailed information about Majorca and the facilities each resort has to offer.
When selecting your holiday accommodation, check if they have any restrictions on large groups - some hotels prefer to keep a more peaceful, family vibe and so do not allow larger groups. This may seem unfair, but it's better to find somewhere that welcomes your party with open arms, and will be better set up to cater for larger numbers travelling as a group.
