The Malgrats Islands, were declared a marine reserve in 2004 by the Calvia Local Council in recognition of the high ecological and fishing value of the region, as well as the diversity of animal habitats and communities. The Malgrats are made up of two small uninhabited islands and are located just a few kilometres of the coast of Santa Ponsa. Despite their proximity, the islands seem like a million miles away from the bustling and busy tourist resort of Santa Ponsa, with their abundance of animal life, sealife and rich vegetation. To really appreciate the beauty of these islands, you must visit them yourself. Then you will understand why they feature on many postcards.
