Coves, bays, cliffs, clear waters and abundant marine life define Cabrera National Park, one of the last paradises of the western Mediterranean.
Less than an hour's sail from the island of Majorca, around twenty islets emerge from the blue surface of a sea seething with life to form this unique archipelago. For centuries, the islands were used as a military base, a fact which accounts for them retaingin their original nature. Safe now from urban pillaging, Cabrera is intact. Its almost virgin habitat offers the best undisturbed island ecosystem in the Spanish Mediterranean. Ospreys have returned to breed on the cliffs and natural vegetation is gaining ground again in the few corners that were cultivated by men.
Each of the islands of the archipelago maintains its own profile - rugged, small, flat or extensive - and its own environmental conditions. Many of the names refer to the forms: Na Plana, which is flat; Na Redona, which is round; l'Esponja, the sponge; els Estells, the stars. There are native species which are not to be found on the other islands, such as the Balearic lizard.
Sailing between cliffs, diving into the limpid blue depths or exploring the cliffs beneath the fourteenth century castle are all options that contribute to an unforgettable experience for anyone who sets foot in this paradise of cliffs and coves.
