The archipelago of Cabrera, which is made up of a group of islands and islets situated around 10 km south of Mallorca, has been a marine-terrestrial national park since 12 April 1991. This island landscape has been kept in its natural state, with a highly valuable ecosystem and one of the best-preserved sea beds in the entire Mediterranean.
The park can be visited without any administrative requirements for one-day visits. Boats leave from the ports of Colònia de Sant Jordi and Porto Petro in Mallorca. Better to book in advance.

If you wish to visit with your own boat, it is necessary to get authorisation from the park administration. Sailing permits of up to one month are granted, though anchoring is prohibited in the evening. In July and August the administration grants permits to stay one night; two-night permits are granted in September and 7-night permits are granted during the rest of the year. It is also necessary to get a permit to go scuba diving, and the park authorities will tell you where you can dive. Mooring at the port of Cabrera is prohibited without a special permit from the military authorities.
