News has been circling around the UK and international press that Magaluf has been “forced to close” for the remaining of the summer. As we are based in Magaluf right now, we feel it is our duty to bring you the truth about the new law that has been put in place, and what it means for people visiting Magaluf, or looking to book a holiday away this season.
The answer is Magaluf is NOT closed and IS open this summer.
The Balearic government have announced that they will force the closure of all commercial establishments in a street called Punta Ballena. Punta Ballena is known as the main street of bars and clubs in Magaluf but is only one street. This means certain venues can not open until 15th September. This is terrible news for these venues, that have not only employed great staff to help save the summer but have invested a lot of time and money into getting the resort ready to accept tourists and save summer 2020 for Majorca.
However, putting this aside, it does not mean “Magaluf is closed down” as many newspapers are saying.
As of time of writing, any venues not on the Punta Ballena road are still open as usual. All these venues have strict rules and restrictions that they follow to ensure customers and staff are safe during these times and meet all government regulations. These include:
Peaky Blinders Pub
Plaza Emploriyum Food Court
Happy House Restaurant
Plus more and we will update this list as they come in.
