Back Es Trenc - Salobrar de Campos Natural Maritime Terrestrial Park
Parc Natural maritimoterrestre Es Trenc - Salobrar de Campos
The Natural Park of Es Trenc - Salobrar de Campos is the second largest wetland area on Mallorca after s'Albufera, with nearly 1,500 hectares. It is located in the south-east of the island, in the municipality of Campos, although a small part belongs to Ses Salines.
It is a protected area with a great natural, ecological and landscaping richness where habitats of high environmental importance coexist. Being a maritime-terrestrial reserve, it provides protected areas both at sea and on land.
The park includes the important wetland of Es Salobrar de Campos, separated from the sea by a string of dunes, the virgin beaches of Es Trenc and Ses Covetes, forests of Aleppo pines (Pinus halepensis) and phoenician junipers (Juniperus phoenicea), cultivated fields and extensive seagrass beds of Posidonia (Posidonia oceanica).
The wetland area of Salobrar de Campos is an ideal place for bird watching, especially flamingos (Phoenicopterus roseus), black-winged stilts (Himantopus himantopus) and cranes (Grus grus).
The virgin beaches of Es Trenc and Ses Covetes are one of the most popular bathing areas in summer due to their fine white sand and crystal clear waters.
The park preserves a salt industry that still maintains its activity and is key to the conservation and maintenance of ethnological elements related to the extraction of salt, as well as for the conservation of flora and fauna present in the salt mine. The salt industry organises different types of guided tours.
Access to the park can be from Sa Ràpita or from Colònia de Sant Jordi.
