Location

Parque Natural de Sa Dragonera



Description

The desert island

Sa Dragonera is an islet separated by a narrow channel – geologically it is a continuation of the Sierra de Tramuntana Mountains.

A visit can be undertaken via a road or path that runs along its entire length. Almost all its coastline is made up of abrupt cliffs, especially in the north-east part. It is almost unspoiled territory, which is why its ecosystem is so ecologically important. Vegetation is based on traditionally Mediterranean species, such as rosemary, heather, wild olive trees, buckthorns, dwarf palms, etc. The existence of different endemisms is notable, for example hypericum perforaturm, 'pa porci', 'Sipthorcia africana' or 'Launea cervicornis'. It possesses rich colonies of bird life, including the herring gull, shag, and, especially Eleonor's falcon. Among the reptiles, we should mentioned the Balearic lizard with its abundant endemic variety.
