The Balearic island of Cabrera is an untouched paradise of virgin nature. The island was declared a nature preserve in 1991 and ever since, access has been limited and is controlled by the Spanish National Institute for the Conservation of Nature.

The most beautiful part of Cabrera is the island's deserted coast. Dolphins are often seen there and in the Cala Gandulf is a wonderful cave, known as Cova Blanca. It is a unique experience to go inside and watch the marvelous reflections of the sunlight. Apart from the natural beauty, Cabrera features a 14th-century pirate fortress. The fortress is not far from the island's port and it is certainly worth a visit.

If you want to visit Cabrera, you will need to get a permission, but if you join a tour from Mallorca, there shouldn't be any problem. If you insist on visiting the island on your own, you will need to contact the ICONA (Instituto Nacional para la Conservación de la Naturaleza), on Plaza España 8, in Palma de Mallorca. In that case you will need your own boat as well.

Access to some parts of Cabrera is forbidden, as is fishing. It is also not allowed to bring domestic animals to the island. Boats are allowed to anchor in the port of Cabrera only and the maximum number of permissions is 50 per day.

You should bring your own supplies, as food and drinks are only available from one small canteen. Cabrera is not far off Mallorca's southern coast, some 595 km southeast of Madrid.
