Magaluf Beach (Catalan: Platja de Magaluf, IPA: ˈpɫadʒə ðə məɣəˈluf; Spanish: Playa de Magaluf) is the name of the beach in the tourist resort of Magaluf. Holiday accommodation, nightclubs and other services aimed at mass tourism make up the urban landscape of the beach. It also receives a massive influx of local swimmers. Magaluf beach is one kilometer long and is made of fine white sand.

Originally, the beach landscape was an unattractive looking marshland, its current state the product artificial regeneration. A half mile from the coast of Magalluf beach is Porrassa Islet, which served as a refuge for the fleet of King James I before he landed in Santa Ponsa in 1229. The area north of the bay is open to winds from the east-southeast to the anchoring of boats on sandy and algae to a depth ranging between two and five meters.
