Cabrera Archipelago National Park
An unspoilt island ecosystem
Just over an hour by boat from Majorca, in the Balearic Islands, you will find this place with great natural beauty.
The marine ecosystem stands out in this cluster of calcareous islands and islets, with meadows of Posidonia oceanica, which favour the proliferation of a large number of species of marine fauna. It is one of the best conserved sea beds on our coast. There are also many endemic plants and important bird colonies. For these reasons it was declared a Land and Sea-based National Park in 1991.
