The Son Real estate is located in the Santa Margalida region of the north-east coast of Mallorca. It extends to 380 hectares. Adjacent to the sea, the estate includes archaeological remains unique in the western Mediterranean, and a dune system with vegetation specially suited to its marine location. Son Real stands out for its beautiful coastline of untouched beaches where one can enjoy the many spectacular tones of blue that characterise the Mediterranean Sea.
Son Real’s plant life is unique because of the presence of sandy soils that shape the estate’s diversity of plants. In these coastal environments, plants that are of interest to bees are clover (Lotus/ Trifolium spp.), alfalfa (Medicago spp.), germanders (Teucrium spp.), rosemary (Rosmarinus officinalis), Mediterranean thistles (Asteraceae), asphodels (Asphodelus spp.), grey-leaved cistus (Cistus albidus), Montpellier cistus (Cistus monspeliensis), Mediterranean buckthorn (Rhamnus alaternus), spurges (Euphorbia spp.) and many-flowered heath (Erica multiflora). In the inland part of the estate, where the soil has a different composition, there is almond trees (Prunus dulcis) and carob trees (Ceratonia siliqua).
