One of the natural areas par excellence in the north of Mallorca is S'Albufera, which was declared a Natural Park in 1988. With a surface area of 1,646 hectares, it also is the largest and most important Wetland Area in the Balearics, declared of "international importance" under the Ramsar Convention.
Located in the municipalities of Muro and Sa Pobla, its surface area and features have fluctuated with changing sea levels. In summer, the park is visited by many bird watchers and other nature enthusiasts who are curious about the wonders of its fauna and flora. Those with the intention of acquiring a rural property will find here an inspiration for a lifestyle that is increasingly in vogue. The great biodiversity present in S'Albufera attracts serious bird watchers, residents and nature enthusiasts alike. They all come to learn more about the park but, above all, to enjoy the great variety of wildlife that it shelters.
Lovers of the rustic and the traditional, who want to rent a finca, or a typical 'possesió mallorquina', will find an idyllic place in the Natural Park of Mondragó, which has access to the sea, and is surrounded by olive and orange groves. This natural reserve has 785 hectares (of which 95 are public property and 690 are in private hands), and is an area of incalculable value. It is located in the southeast of the island, in the municipality of Santanyí. Centuries of agricultural and livestock activity have created a mosaic of different environments that give it a great diversity of landscapes. When visiting the area, it is possible to see many endemic plants and species, including different types of orchids, and the Mediterranean tortoise. With a description like that, who can resist?
