Cabrera is an uninhabited island south of Majorca, it belongs to the Balearics in Spain. The island is a National Park. To anchor, dive, etc. you need to apply for an authorization. The island has developed its own unique range of flora and fauna and for anyone interested in wildlife it should not be missed. The bay is beautiful, peaceful and sheltered.

The entrance to Puerto de Cabrera is hidden until you are upon it, and then opens up into a beautiful natural bay with a 15th Century fortress on the port side that rises from a clump of stones. Entrance is possible in all winds but would be tricky if the wind was blowing very strongly from the north.
