Where is Love Island 2018 filmed? Where the stunning Majorca villa is and how you can stay there

It’s summer, which can only mean one thing, the return of our favourite guilty pleasures – Love Island !

The sizzling show is back on our screens , and the luxury villa is ready for the new singletons’ arrival.

We’re getting major holiday envy already.

After all, it’s not just the blossoming relationships and drama that have us glued to the screen – every series we’ve been given plenty of summer inspiration thanks to the glorious sunny location and luxury accommodation that contestants are treated to.

So, where is exactly is Love Island and, more importantly, can you stay there?

We reveal everything you need to know about the villa’s sun-soaked location, including the best things to see and do if you’re feeling inspired to a romantic break abroad yourself…

Or of course, you could hire one of these Love Island-style villas for the summer too!


Where is Love Island filmed?

The sun-soaked island is closer than you think – Majorca, Spain to be exact.

With a flight time of under three hours, it’s an ideal holiday destination whether you’re looking to book in a long weekend, or want to spend a full week exploring the region’s beautiful beaches or picturesque Palma.


Where are the contestants staying?

The group are treated to a luxury villa for their temporary new home – and this series it looks like it’s more glamorous than ever.

ITV2 are using the same villa as last year, although it’s currently being given a major update .

We can’t wait to see what’s new although we can’t help but hope some of our favourites from the hot tub to the gym are staying.

Oh, and the outdoor kitchen that served as the backdrop for the setting of many awkward ‘the morning after’ scenarios!


The villa interiors are pretty stunning, from large bedrooms to a marble bathroom with a luxurious looking bath.

Oh and of course there’s likely to still be a dressing room where the girls and boys can get ready for their dates.



Last series saw the Hideaway was back: a separate bedroom where contestants can enjoy some alone time.

But whether it remains the same or gets an even more luxurious update remains to be seen.

We’re also on the look out for the iconic ‘Beach Hut’, where the cast can come and open up to the cameras about their blossoming romances, or vent about their fellow housemates.

The best romantic hotspots for a date in Majorca

Watching Love Island, it’s difficult not to get swept away by the drama and blossoming romances, and it could leave you feeling like you want to plan your own romantic date.

Although the contestants tend to stay in the villa or go for the occasional meal out, there are actually plenty of brilliant romantic date nights and days out available in Majorca.

Here are some of our favourite ones…

Boat excursion: There are plenty of boat tours available in Palma , whether you want a full day out or just an afternoon at sea. It’s the perfect opportunity to spend some quality time together, not to mention you’ll get to discover Majorca’s spectacular coast from a whole new angle.


Water sports: Kayaking and snorkeling continue to be a hit in Majorca’s crystalline blue waters, and you’re sure to make some brilliant (sometimes hilarious) memories. TripAdvisor has some great recommendations including this tour in Palma Bay .

Spa day: There’s nothing like a spot of pampering to truly unwind, and there are plenty of spa hotels that offer treatments for couples – check out the most popular ones on TripAdvisor here .

Romantic meal: For a meal with a difference head to Es Pati , where there’s no official menu but the food keeps drawing locals and tourists back – plus it only seats around 40 people so you’ll be able to enjoy a cosy night out.

Salvia Restaurant is also a hit with couples looking for something a bit different – expect fine dining and some beautiful views of the rolling green hills.
