4.0
#1 of 12 in Things to do in Ca'n Picafort
Stroll through Parque natural s'Albufera de Mallorca, the largest wetland area in the Balearics, and you're sure to get a look at some of the 271 species of birds that call the preserve home--purple swamp-hen, black-winged stilt, and teal, to name a few. You'll also see myriad fish, reptiles, the rare Barbastelle bat, and the Psyathyrella halofila, a toadstool unique to S’Albufera. The site boasts the highest biodiversity in the Balearics due to the unique confluence of abundant rain, rich sediment, and proximity to the sea, which creates a fertile floodplain environment. Stop by the information center to learn about the wildlife and paths for walking and biking--lengths range from 15 minutes to around 3 hours. Don't forget water as the expansive park can get warm. The birding huts can also be a good place to find shade.
