Most people who head this way come to take a dip in the lovely Cala Mondragó, one of the most attractive coves on the east coast. Sheltered by large rocky outcrops and fringed by pine trees, it’s formed by a string of three protected sandy beaches connected by rocky footpaths.


Birdwatchers have a ball with the varied species found in the area, which include falcons and turtledoves. Among those species that nest here are peregrine falcons and Audouin’s gulls. Taking one of the walking trails that criss-cross the park will give you plenty of birdwatching opportunities. Also keep an eye out for Algerian hedgehogs, Hermann’s tortoise and the Balearic toad.
