S’Albufera des Grau Nature Reserve - from Ciutadella?

Does anyone know of any excursions that go from the Ciutadella area or whether its feasible to go by bus to this nature reserve?

Thanks in advance for any replies.

I don't know of any excursions to the Albufera I'm afraid or direct bus link from Ciutadella. Autos Torres run a bus service to Es Grau from bus station in Mahon from mid June to mid September.

I have never seen excursions to the S’Albufera reserve being advertised anywhere on the island.

It would be possible to get a bus from Ciutadella to Mahon then Mahon to Es Grau and then walk but would need some planning to get the right bus connection times.

Personally I think it would be best to hire a car for the day.

If you looking to get out into the Menorcan countryside I think you would enjoy a jeep safari.

They will pick you up and drop you off in the resort you are staying at and you could even get roped into driving one of the jeeps.

The help of a local guide for the day may be the best idea.

S’Albufera des Grau Nature Reserve is time consuming to reach and probably a half day to explore, so an early start with a guide would allow you to combine with a visit to perhaps Addaia.

Vivien ,but what are going there for?- would help with answers. If just as nice nature area then there are plenty , just as good closer to you eg La Vall, Algendar Valley. if Birds etc then use a local guide
