Many visitors are surprised to find that Mallorca has much to offer birders, botanists, and divers in the many land and marine nature reserves. The island is an important stopover for many types of migratory birds as well as local species.
On the flora side, Mallorca is home to a great variety of flowering and aromatic shrubs, and typical Mediterranean trees such as Aleppo pine, holm oak, olive, almond and carob, as well as citrus varieties. Marine life around the islands is particularly diverse and rewarding for divers.
