Cabrera, a different island28/06/2011
Island of prisoners and legends, a natural reserve of great environmental value, fantastic scenery and crystal-clear waters... The archipelago of Cabrera offers a truly unique experience to enjoy while on holiday in Mallorca.
Cabrera is an uninhabited island that can be visited in summer. Discover all its corners, the rich wildlife and a little gem known as the Cova Blava, a hidden cave where you can swim among bright blue waters and reflections of the light.
The archipelago of Cabrera has had a protected status since it was declared a National Park and a Specially Protected Area of Mediterranean Importance (SPAMI). The declaration safeguards the island from any attempts to build on it, and provides other guarantees aiming to preserve this island paradise.
Camping is not allowed on Cabrera but you can of course enjoy the stories of prisoners and pirates, exceptional surroundings, plentiful marine life, more than 500 catalogued species and, above all, coves where you can swim in a peaceful, safe and very pleasant setting.
Various companies operate services taking visitors to Cabrera from the towns of Colonia de Sant Jordi (Ses Salines), La Ràpita and Santanyí. In addition, there's a visitor centre in Colonia de Sant Jordi itself, for learning all about Cabrera's historical, maritime and environmental riches.
There are day trips by boat from Mallorca to Cabrera. For more information, visit the 'Excursions to Cabrera' website.
