Detailed description

The flora and fauna – above all bird life – at S’Albufera is rich and varied.  The lie of the land also means that anyone can visit.

There are four possible route plans:

  • Es Colombars trail.  1,325 metres long, featuring halophytic vegetation that has adapted to grow in high concentrations of salt.
  • Sa Roca trail.  Ideal for admiring the flora, fauna and landscape along a 760 metre long route.
  • Es Cibollar trail.  Rolls out in the centre of the park and is 725 metres long.  The landscape is particularly stunning here.

Camí d’Enmig – Ses Puntes trail.  We recommend that you do this 11.5 Km trail by bike in order to admire the various landscapes and ecosystems.  Highlights are the various ethnological heritage elements en route.
