Marvellous day out with stunning beaches and amazing landscape. On the boat trip from Colonia de Sant Jordi you get around 4-5 hours free time in Cabrera. Don't miss the views from the castle, but otherwise just head to the beaches, which are the highlight of Cabrera. The views from anywhere on the island are just stunning and the stop at the Blue Cave on the boat trip on the way back to Mallorca is wonderful.
Make sure you take food and LOTS of water because there is only one bar on the whole island and they don't offer very much. It it always feels hotter on Cabrera than on Mallorca so make sure you have hat, sun cream and water. Wear comfy shoes for walking because the pathways are very rocky and uncomfortable on the feet.

We went here on a trip for 3 hours which was nowhere near enough time as you only get 1 hour on the island , if you like to relax and enjoy this beautiful national park , I would say if you get the opportunity to come and visit have a minimum of 2 hours on the island it self , this would give you enough time to visit the castle and enjoy a coffee and some fresh food at the little taverna which we did not have enough time for , the views are amazing and the little bay is full of yachts , great for couples and older teenagers not so much for little ones

We took an organised trip to the island of Cabrera. We were picked up from our hotel and taken to the port where we picked up our boat. The boat carried about 50 people, and I expected it to be quite slow, oh no!! I checked the gauge and we we travelling at about 25 knots, it was great. It took 45 mins to get to the island. When we got there the park guides told us what places there were to visit.There is also a small cafe. We chose the 10 minute walk to the deserted castle, the views from which we spectacular and then the walk in the opposite direction to a most beautiful beach. Great for snorkelling, there where a great many fish to see. You get about 4 hours on the island, then the boat picks you up and takes you into the Blue cave and you get to swim there, tat was truly amazing! Well worth a visit, recommended

You can only book moorings online and the official website is old, poor and according to my browser unsafe for viewing and credit card transactions due to the age of the software/ encryption used. The pages either don't display at all or I get redirected back to 'safety' lol.

The place itself, if you can get your navigation permit and mooring booking sorted, is beautiful and peaceful.
The people on site in the office and cafe are lovely. But website booking site needs to be updated and easier to use.

We love going to Cabrera several times a year and it's really a beautiful place but unfortunately getting worse every year. It's just such a pity that although there are about 20+ employees many places are completely abandoned. Nobody at the top of hill taking care of the castle, so kids can carve their names at this historically important monument and every year they just close one more area to the visitors, so now you can't even get to the top.. The other day we took a one hour walk to the lighthouse and nobody was there either. So I guess if you collapse somewhere, they won't notice until few days later when they decide to leave the coffee shop and DRIVE AROUND. Yes I wrote that right. They tell you not to make noise and they drive around in cars :-O The beaches at the other side of the island are full of rubbish. Is it such a problem to remove it once a week? Well in the end we got the answer to our wondering where all the employees are. Walking by one of the buildings we smelled weed. So I guess Cabrera is the new Ibiza. Come to party here!!

The 19 islands of Cabrera are about 45 mins motor boat from the SE tip of Majorca. On the island to the East of the main island there is the famous but small blue lagoon area.
The buoys in the bay of the main island can be reserved on the Internet for a night. Great to arrive ere late afternoon, swim a little, climb the hill to the castle and then leave early morning for the next port. Moorings are free and there are about 50 of them in the bay. Nice to have a map to pinpoint yours.

We had a fabulous day at the national park. We booked direct online for €45 each per adult which included the boat trip, really good picnic lunch and entry on to the island. We picked the tickets up from the office close by and also parked nearby for free, all very easy. There are tour guides on the island if you need them and they give all info you need whilst you're there. We hiked up to the castle which took about 20 mins. The paths are good, very stoney but we did it in flip flops and had no problems. We climbed right up to the top of the castle and the views are absolutely incredible and breathtakingly beautiful! There are three beacges, we walked to the first beach which was sandy, took about 25mins from the castle. We spent a few hours there swimming and sunbathing and taking it all in. Its a true litgle paradise island. The island is very quiet and so gorgeous to walk around, with lots of beauty spots for pictures and sunbathing. Lots of wildlife, birds and hundreds of lizards everywhere! On the way back we stopped at the blue cave for swimming which was great fun and really refreshing. This was probably one of the best day trips we've done on holiday and it was very easy to arrange ourselves. Was great value for money and woyld recommend when visiting Mallorca :)

If you have the time to do something different then this trip is worth the effort. Crossing to the Islands takes about 45 minutes on the fast boats, you will most likely get wet on the journey and it can be very bumpy.
Once on the main island there is a fort over looking the bay, which on our visit was full of yachts of all shapes and sizes. It's worth the climb for the view. A steep path cuts a corner off the longer less steep route by a rough track (which is paved part of the way).
There is a small bar near the landing stage which serves ice creams, hot and cold drinks, some snacks etc and toilets nearby. There is a small hostel for over night stays, reservations essential.
An hour doesn't do the island justice so we'll be back.

For the thrill seeker the 12 person dinghy with its twin 250Hp engines at 25knots with a couple of feet of swell
is a must. My back will recover shortly my physio assures me. The island is a gem with a beautiful harbour protected by the castle of Cabrera. A 15 minute stroll from the port up a dusty track and a tight spiralling staircase onto the castle battlement provides glorious views across the island. Retracing your steps and a 30 minute walk around the inner harbour brings you to a series of small beaches which even in August had plenty of room. A covered picnic area existed behind the main beach with a safe swimming area marked off from the yachts. The harbour has a small bar/café and toilet. Mar Cabrera picked us back up and only slight negative was feeling of running to a tight schedule as opposed to running an excursion. Blue cave was very blue and trip back equally as brutally bouncy, the kids loved it and upgrading to the bigger boat next time. A definite must do trip for regular Mallorca visitors.

I recently visited the underground aquarium with my boyfriend; it was good value (only 8 euros per person) and the way it was designed made it feel like you were under the water with the fish! There's an exciting range of fish and water creatures to see e.g. stingray, turtles, starfish etc.

Overall it was a nice way of spending an hour of our holiday :)
