It posses a great natural value, since, due to its isolation throughout history, the archipelago has survived to this day virtually unchanged: the coastal landscape of Cabrera can be considered one of the best preserved of the Spanish coast, and one of the best in the Mediterranean.
Important colonies of seabirds and endemic species await us in their islands and islets.
We anchor in its sheltered bay, under the fourteenth century castle, built in the harbor entrance. This castle prevented the harbour to be used as a pirate base and allowed a better vigilance of the waters next to Mallorca. We sailed its islands with the boat and canoes. We dive into the warm waters to enjoy its wildlife. There are salps, golden, sea bass and bream sunfish. It is also easy to see hedgehogs and cuttlefish.
In the rocky botton, groupers, octopuses, moray and conger eels live around, sharing space with the loggerhead turtle and common and bottlenose dolphins.
Species such as Audouin’s gull, Cory’s shearwater, the shag and the storm petrel form colonies in the archipelago, and also the Balearic shearwater, in grave danger of extinction.
And at the sunset, to the Sa Cova, the blue cave. The sun’s rays penetrate into its waters involving them in a soothing turquoise colour.
A real privilege of nature at hand.
