We Went To See What Magaluf Is Really Like, As Expected It’s Pretty NSFW

You know the place. You’ve been there. You’ve counted the days to go back. You’ve heard of the crazy banter. You’ve read about it. Now you’ve told us the truth.

Mallorca, Mediterranean paradise, is not only known for white sandy beaches, friendly locals and breathtaking nature but also for the unforgettable parties.

 
As a native to the infamous island but a student in the UK, I heard all the shocking news. So I went home to find out what’s really going on…

This is what I saw.

“No respect, no morals” 

Yes, that’s a stick figure stripper on the left side. These guys can’t forget the reasonably priced drinks (an endangered species in London).

This Scott was sitting at a bar with his friends, they were relaxing before a big night out and even played a little game of noughts and crosses with us (he won).

This girl really (not really) wanted a Harry Potter tattoo

“Do you like Harry Potter? Come dance with us!!!!”

All the while there was a girl dressed as Snow White dancing around to the Harry Potter soundtrack…

Who proved it’s not all about debauchery 

The guys at Pirate Beach explained how they were organising a charity event aimed at giving back to the Spanish local community.

These guys at the tattoo parlour told us that the craziest requests they’ve had include a winged penis and a star around the bum hole

And that’s the real Maga. Just a place standing in front of tourists, asking them to have fun.

Bars and restaurants work hard to commit to the rest of the community, tourists like you enjoy their time here and, although there are a few black sheep scattered around, there is an enjoyable party ambiance floating in the air.
