Oak forests teeming with birds, rugged cliffs, hidden coves - a natural paradise on the southeast coast.
Near the town of Santanyí, a marvelous reserve that's a birder's paradise.
A nature reserve on Majorca's southeast coast outside the town of Santanyí, it consists of thick oak forests leading practically up to the beaches which together with the nearby cliffs constitute a unique ecosystem, one that's become home to the island's largest bird populations (it's commonplace, for example, to see the skies hereabouts filled with cormorants). Another wonderful local feature is various kilometres of pristine coves — it's the perfect place to find yourself a secluded patch of waterfront real estate you'll have all to yourself. In fact, this area is so out of the way that until the 19th century it was a haven for pirates and smugglers. And they say that — you guessed it — there's pirate treasure buried hereabouts, matey.
