If you go on vacation to the beautiful island of Mallorca there is an excursion that you can’t afford to miss: a visit to Cabrera. The wonderful Cabrera Archipelago Natural Park in the Balearic Islands is one of the most incredible natural places in the world; its islands make up a wild natural park, one of the best conserved of the Spanish coast and of the entire Mediterranean Sea.
This natural park is made up by 19 islands and islets. The largest one is Cabrera, followed by the Illa dels Conills. The other larger islands and islets are Ses Rates, els Estels, l’Imperial, les Bledes, es Fonoll, na Rodona, l’Esponja, na Plana, na Pobra, s’Illot Pla, s’Illot and na Foradada.
Cabrera Natural Park can be visited without any formalities on one day excursions, taking any of the boats going there from the ports of Colònia de Sant Jordi and Porto Petro. A day is sufficient for a visit to the island and to bathe in its transparent waters. You might not want to leave, thinking that just one day is not enough—it sometimes happens!
If you want to visit the park on a boat of your own you will need an authorization issued by the park administration.
Scuba diving and snorkeling fans will indulge in the depths of this Natural Park. The seabed features large extensions of posidonia meadows and rocks, with a great variety of fishes and vegetable species, as well as dolphins and sea tortoises. Fishing is totally forbidden, for obvious reasons. The abundance of fish draws many different sea birds, making Cabrera a privileged place for observing and studying birds and their migrations.
Tip: Don’t forget to visit the famous Cova Blava (blue cave), a mythical place that can only be reached by sea, with surprising light effects that give its waters a magical turquoise hue, as if they were illuminated from below. It is a unique, unforgettable experience.
