Water is the basis for the ecological wealth of S’Albufera. The water and the moisture of the soil allow a constant growth of the vegetation, which varies depending on the water depth, proximity to the sea and the nature of the terrain. Much of the water in the park is fed by rainwater, seasonal streams and springs from underground aquifers. Although the amount of seawater that penetrates in the summer months is relatively small, this entry has significant effects on flora and fauna alike.
