S’Albufera Nature Park

S’Albufera de Mallorca is the largest wetland area in the Balearic Islands, declared a nature park in January 1988. This area is, in fact, an old lagoon separated from the sea by a strip of dunes that for several centuries, especially since human influence arrived, has been filling up with sediments to become a flood plain.

Although admission to the park is free, you have to request permission at the S’Albufera Visitor Centre. The reasoning behind this is to conserve the natural habitat as much as possible. This centre has four itineraries available: Sa Roca, Es Colombars, Camí d’Enmig and Es Cibollar.

On all options, you’ll see a variety of animals and many birds, over two hundred of which come here to nest or spend prolonged periods. Although you can visit on foot without any problems, we recommend using a bike to get the most out of the park.
