Illa de Cabrera
Illa de Cabrera Review
Off the south coast of Majorca, this verdant isle is one of the last unspoiled places in the Mediterranean—the largest of the 19 islands that make up the Cabrera Archipelago. Determined to protect its dramatic landscape, varied wildlife, and lush vegetation, environmental activists succeeded in 1991 in having it declared a national park. Throughout its history, Cabrera has had its share of visitors, from the Romans to the Arabs. Today, the only intact historical remains are those of a 14th-century castle overlooking the harbor. Between April and October, speedboat tours are operated daily by Marcabrera (971/656403 or 622/574806 www.marcabrera.com). Boats generally depart from Colònia de Sant Jordi, 47 km (29 miles) southeast of Palma, six times daily, starting at 9 am. Tickets for the several itineraries on offer, one of which includes a stop to swim in the mysterious Cueva Azul (Blue Cave), are €40 and €50.
