Terrestrial and Maritime National Park
Cabrera Island is a small island located off the south coast of Majorca, Spain. It is part of the Cabrera Archipelago National Park, which is a protected area that includes several small islands and islets. The island is known for its beautiful beaches, crystal clear waters, and diverse wildlife, which makes it a popular destination for nature lovers, hikers, and outdoor enthusiasts. Visitors can explore the island's many trails, snorkel and dive in the crystal-clear waters, or simply relax on one of its many secluded beaches. The island is also home to several historical and cultural sites, including the ruins of a castle and a lighthouse. With its unspoiled natural beauty and rich cultural heritage, Cabrera Island is a must-see destination for any visitor to Majorca.
The Archipelago consists of 19 small islands and islets and the whole area is designated as a Terrestrial and Maritime National Park, most of which is covered by the sea.
Discover Majorca’s west coast without having to organize logistics or transport on this full-day sightseeing tour. Rather than invest hours in hiring cars or juggling buses or cabs; head into Mallorca’s Serra de Tramuntana mountain range by coach. After admiring the scenery, enjoy a boat trip to Port de Soller and a tram journey to Soller—with free time at each—before riding a vintage train through the Soller Valley.

We highly recommend the Cabrera Island Boat Trip. On this intimate sailing trip, you'll cast off from Palma and spend the day sunbathing, snorkelling and swimming in some of Majorca's most pristine and undiscovered coves.
Hop aboard the yacht in the mid-morning and sit back for a day of escapism. Your captain will take you along the south coast towards the island of Cabrera, a small uninhabited island where the snorkelling is legendary. And the best part about this trip, is that you'll be travelling in style, complete with lunch and drinks served on board the boat.
Once you reach the island, you'll have ample opportunity to explore, stopping to swim wherever takes your fancy. Don your snorkel mask too, and you'll discover an underwater world just beneath the surface. You'll then return in the late afternoon having seen a new side to Majorca – Book tickets.
