Platja de Muro, Majorca
REST AND LEISURE IN EQUAL MEASURE
Visitors to Platja de Muro are immediately immersed in a delightfully refined atmosphere. The environmental wealth of this area and the magnificent state of conservation of its rich natural heritage are an invitation to revel in a superb natural setting bathed in bright warm sunshine. A vast stretch of sand where the crystal-clear water laps gently on the shore makes this the ideal spot for rest and relaxation or enjoying a wide choice of outdoor activities.
The beaches and surroundings
Platja de Muro unlocks the true essence of Mediterranean calm and tranquillity. A seemingly endless beach of fine white sand and dunes dotted with low-lying vegetation come together in a serene landscape that is made for rest and relaxation. Lining the coastline, the S’Albufera Nature Park is a protected space boasting a stunning landscape of immense ecological value. Each year, more than 200 species of birds nest in these marshy lands, crisscrossed by signposted routes that are ideal for following on foot or by bicycle.
Es Comú de Muro, declared a Natural Area of Special Interest, is one of the finest unspoilt beaches on Majorca’s North Coast. Magnificent juniper and pine woods stabilise a dune system that is the only one of its kind in the Balearic Islands.
Leisure and free time
A prime location coupled with the superb infrastructures and facilities in this area make it ideal for enjoying countless sports and outdoor activities.
Platja de Muro also offers visitors complete cycling tourism routes that run from the coastline to the island’s inland towns and villages, as well as a large number of hiking, Segway and Nordic walking trails that are an ideal way of exploring a matchless natural environment that is guaranteed to surprise and delight.
Flora and fauna
The S’Albufera Nature Park, with its outstanding natural heritage, is home to two thirds of all the animal species to be found on the Balearic Islands. Countless species of birds and fish find food and shelter among the lagoons and reed beds of these impressive wetlands. Following the signposted trails or bird watching from the observation huts guarantee an excellent day out for all the family.
The coastline in this area features a wide expanse of sand and a closely-protected dune system shaped by the wind. It is the habitat of Posidonia oceanica - commonly-known as Neptune grass - which is particularly appreciated by divers as it contributes to ensuring the quality and transparency of the waters.
History and culture
No fewer than 50 archaeological sites relate the rich history of Muro and its coastline, which dates back to ancient times. Just a short distance away lies the Talaiotic burial ground of Son Real, taking visitors back in time to the Iron Age and situated on an estate of the same name that is open to the public.
The neighbouring town of Alcúdia is the site of the Roman city of Pol•lèntia and the Roman Theatre. It was declared a Historic-Artistic Site in 1974, together with the medieval wall that surrounds the town.
The local cuisine is renowned for its mouth-watering flavours and variety. Traditional dishes include frit de porc (stir-fried pork, potatoes and peppers), tumbet (Majorca’s version of ratatouille), arròs brut (a meat and vegetable rice dish) and sopes mallorquines (vegetables and meat simmered slowly with bread to soak up the stock). Sobrassada is Majorca’s best-known cured meat, made from pork, bacon and paprika.
When it comes to sweets and pastries, nothing can compare with a delicious ensaïmada. Wound round to form a spiral shape, this exquisite pastry can be filled with a wide range of ingredients, such as cream, chocolate, confectioner’s custard and sweet pumpkin jam. Wine is also deeply rooted in the island’s cultural heritage; two regions have been awarded a Designation of Origin: Binissalem and Pla i Llevant.
