A SUMMER IN MAJORCA
by Matteo Vieille
Every summer tens of thousands of young people get to Mallorca to spend an unforgettable holiday.
The chosen destinations are Arenal and Magaluf, two urban clusters of hotels, clubs and restaurants emerging around Palma de Mallorca.
Young tourists often don’t visit the rest of the island and spend their whole holiday where they can enjoy a tailor-made entrainment, and where every year the holiday business gets renewed, confirming Mallorca as one of the most popular destinations for European youth.
Getting wasted at any cost is the driving force of the holiday. For many it is as a way to explore their own physical limits, constantly looking for the kind of entertainment that often turns into its opposite.
They are young people peeping into adult life with its choices and changes, and they are only a few years away from the struggle of finding their own place in the world. They come to Mallorca to forget the restless feeling of an uncertain future, exploring excesses to look for memorable moments.
