Llevant is the most untouched nature area on Mallorca. This district includes municipalities of Artà, Capdepera, Manacor, Son Servera and Sant Llorenç des Cardassar (San Lorenzo).
In 2002, a large area was placed in conservation and designated Llevant Nature Reserve. While here, you'll see free-ranging herds of Mallorquin donkeys and colonies of Mediterranean tortoises. You can walk or drive through the Reserve up a narrow road to see stunning views from the top down on to the Bay of Alcudia. The road then drops down to a remote church, the Ermita de Betlem, just next to the coastline. A number of hiking trails start from here.
Llevant Nature Reserve is also a popular destination for bird watching. Some of the land is privately-owned and there is a visitor center. If you enjoy a natural environment, crave a quiet solitude to hear the sounds of the sea, wind and wildlife, this is the one of the most peaceful places on the island.
