An excursion to Cabrera is one of the most popular activities in Mallorca in the summer. There are many attractions that the archipelago of Cabrera offers, such as its beaches, the views from its Castle, its hiking trails ... This, together with the pleasure of doing a boat trip, and ending with a bath in the blue cave, are some of the the reasons for its popularity. Without forgetting that the archipelago of Cabrera is the only national park that we have in the Balearics.
Whether you are visiting in summer or winter, Cabrera has a lot to offer. The summer months are ideal to enjoy Cabrera’s great climate and the sunshine on one of its beaches.

All this without forgetting other interesting activities to do on Cabrera, such as a visit to the castle, the museum of Cabrera or the French monument.
The archipelago of Cabrera is formed by 18 islands, many of which are little-known, unlike the Cova Blava (the Blue Cave). This is a natural cavity where, in the afternoon, the sun’s rays illuminate the cave, producing spectacular light effects and colours, hence its name. The only way to reach this cave is by sea and all the excursions to Cabrera include a stop there.
