Majorca has many nature reserves were visitors can admire the island’s extraordinary natural beauty.
Between Puerto de Alcudia and Ca’n Picafort, less than a 15 minute drive away from Monnaber Nou, the wetland of S’Albufera is home to approximately 400 species of flora and also a very important fauna diversity, including 250 bird species, 20 fish species, its famous eels, many invertebrate animals, etc. It is a very important bird-watching site where some species reside all year around, while others visit only in winter or summer, and others just stop by during their migration flight.
Slightly further North, and also very close to our rural hotel, is another smaller wetland called S’Albufereta in Pollença. It is known for its great diversity of natural and semi-natural habitats. This nature reserve is also an excellent spot for bird-watching as 196 of the 325 known species in the Balearic Islands can be seen there.
Also in the North East of the island, the Península de Llevant Nature Reserve offers visitors a wide range of habitats concentrated in a relatively small area. The reserve’s most famous inhabitants are the Mediterranean tortoises and its vegetation is characterized by the large amount of pyrophytic flora which is highly resistant against fire.
