Flora and fauna
The S’Albufera Nature Park, with its outstanding natural heritage, is home to two thirds of all the animal species to be found on the Balearic Islands.
Platja de Muro unlocks the true essence of Mediterranean calm and tranquillity. A seemingly endless beach of fine white sand and dunes dotted with low-lying vegetation come together in a serene landscape that is made for rest and relaxation.
Lining the coastline, the S’Albufera Nature Park is a protected space boasting a stunning landscape of immense ecological value. Each year, more than 200 species of birds nest in these marshy lands, crisscrossed by signposted routes that are ideal for following on foot or by bicycle.
Es Comú de Muro, declared a Natural Area of Special Interest, is one of the finest unspoilt beaches on Majorca’s North Coast. Magnificent juniper and pine woods stabilise a dune system that is the only one of its kind in the Balearic Islands.
The local cuisine is renowned for its mouth-watering flavours and variety. Traditional dishes include frit de porc (stir-fried pork, potatoes and peppers), tumbet (Majorca’s version of ratatouille), arròs brut (a meat and vegetable rice dish) and sopes mallorquines (vegetables and meat simmered slowly with bread to soak up the stock).
