(4/5 based on 360+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Specifically for bird watchers, this area is an absolute must. On the main channel on the way to the visitor centre, you can find the first night heron, that - waiting - sit on the twilight in the dense branches. All kinds of ducks take their cars on the channels. It chirps differently in any shrub or tree. Around the information centre there is then quite some activity - schools, cyclists, etc. In the building a permit is s ' man informally itself in the Albufera to move. The further one is trail away on the great from the visitors centre, it is the quiet and lonely. That is a veritable feast for ornithologists: various plovers, Wheatear, Velvet head warblers, black-winged stilts, Cetti's Warbler. At each corner a new challenge. It is in any case, to complete the large circular hike with more than 11 km. Clear recommendation for all who want to experience nature in Mallorca. Sturdy shoes or hiking boots are essential.

  • Who wants to watch birds or relax l and want to escape the screaming on the beach, which is right here. The vast wetland area invites to hours hiking in great ways. However - don't forget drinking water. Also one can drive comfortably on the area with the wheel. Elevated high seat of view of are welcome opportunity for all bird watchers and photographers. Only drawback: In late summer, the area stinks pathetic after all any. Tip: visit In the spring or autumn.

  • The nature park is just a few steps from our hotel. On the day of our departure, we use the verb leibende time to one of the displayed tours with viewpoints, to visit the observation tower and observation homes. It's still early as we start and we few others are already on their way to watch the birds, or just the nature in the Park to enjoy.
