The fortress of the Balearic lizard
The Natural park of Sa Dragonera is formed by the islets of Pantaleu, Sa Mitjana and the island of Sa Dragonera. It has a total protected area of 908ha of which, 634 are marine and 274 are terrestrial, all of them located in the municipality of Andratx (Mallorca).
The spectacular island of Dragonera is an extension of the Serra de Tramuntana, separated by a sea channel of just 800m. From Sant Elm, the picturesque touristic center in the west of Mallorca, the 20 min maritime journey to sa Dragonera is sailed in the purest traditional Mallorcan style: with a wooden classic Llaüt
During the journey, and as you get closer to the island, you can appreciate the size of it, with a top height of 352m where the mountain of Far Vell (Old lighthouse) is located, which rises impetuously on the southern slope and is cut by incredible sea cliffs on the northern slope.
The landing on the island in Cala Lledó, opens a door to us to explore, with the walk and the differents explanations of the guide, the valuable natural heritage, the biodiversity and the history of the island.
Without any doubt, the beautiful views of the costa de Tramuntana and also of the Eleonora’s hawk, the osprey and the bottlenose dolphin or the different endemic species such the Curruca Balear, the Balear Lizard and the Saladina of Dragonera, among many other species, make the visit to the fascinating Natural Park, priceless moments taken in the nature.
