Majorca’s ecotourism adventures

May 14, 2022 European News No Comments

From mountains, oak and pine forests to marine reserves, beaches and coves, Majorca is home to a very diverse ecosystem where travellers can connect with nature, explore the wildlife and enjoy the great outdoors.

Whether visitors wish to hike, dive or watch the local wildlife, Majorca offers plenty of ecotourism adventures to be enjoyed all year round thanks to its mild Mediterranean climate and excellent tourism infrastructure.

Hiking

There are no better ways to explore the beauty and diversity of the local fauna and flora than travelling by foot. Hikers’ favourite playground on the island is the Sierra de Tramuntana, a UNESCO World Heritage mountain range of 90 kilometres and Majorca’s largest protected area that forms the northern backbone of the island. Here, the landscape is marked by agricultural terraces, lime kilns and inter-connected waterworks, including water mills as well as dry stone constructions and farms. So many elements that showcase millennia of agricultural heritage and human interaction with the elements.

Diving

Thanks to its crystal clear waters and rich sealife, Majorca attracts many snorkelers and divers throughout the year. The island offers plenty of easily accessible snorkelling spots and diving sites featuring an abundance of rich seabeds, marine reserves with dozens of fish species and algae, underwater caves and even remains of sunken ships.

Local wildlife

In Majorca, nothing says springtime more than the blooming of the Orchis Robusta, a beautiful species of orchids found in the S’Albufera nature reserve that can reach over half a metre in height.

Conservationists alike will not feel left out on the island as it is home to a large number of endemic species, mostly invertebrates as well as the ferreret also known as the “Majorcan midwife toad”. Considered vulnerable and once on the brink of extinction, these frogs are currently restricted to isolated mountain rivers of the Sierra de Tramuntana and have an estimated population of 500 breeding pairs in the wild.

Located on the Western European migratory route, Majorca is also an ideal ground for bird watching where warblers, vireos, sea falcons and ospreys (amongst others) can often be spotted.

Accommodation in rural areas

Whilst Majorca offers plenty of sleek urban hotels and comfortable beach resorts to suit every budget, the island also proposes a wide range of quaint, rural, eco-friendly accommodation options featuring refuges and hostels located only few steps away from its diverse and beautiful natural playgrounds.
