L’Albufera (meaning “lagoon” in Catalan, from Arabic
البحيرة al-buhayra, “little sea”) is one of the
Mediterranean’s premier birdwatching sites at any time of the year. This
park is home to over 300 species, including 64 who breed here.
Waterbirds are the park’s forté and easily accessible trails wind amid
the wetlands. Such is its appeal that it’s likely to convert even the
most ambivalent visitor into an avid twitcher.
