If you travel through the Southwest of Mallorca I recommend a visit of Sa Dragonera ("dragon island"). Important: the weather should be fine!

Sa Dragonera is an uninhabited small rocky island 800 metres offshore. It is 4,2 kilometeres long. Maximum width is 900 metres. It is the sixth largest island of the Balearic Islands. The island can be reached by boat from the village of St. Elm which is located directly across the "Canal des Freu". In the past Sa Dragonera was a hiding place for corsairs. Today it is a preserve area (seabirds, lizards) with an attached ranger station - and a destination for hikers.

The shuttle boat transfer ("Crucero Margarita") from St. Elm to Cala Lladó, the natural harbour of Sa Dragonera, takes just 15 minutes. There are several paths on the island. We chose the trail to the old lighthouse Na Popi (Far Vell) which is located on top of the highest elevation (360 metres) of the island. Climbing to the top takes about 60-90 minutes. Difficulty is moderate (not very steep). The sight from the top is breathtaking. Sa Dragonera lies at your feet. In addition to that you can see the impressive coastline of Mallorca.

If you are not interested in hiking up hill and down dale wandering to the "Cap des Llebeig" at the southwest corner of the island may be an agreeable alternative.

Distance: 3,8 kilometres

Please note:

- you have to bring your own food and water

- secondhand information: there has been a substantial price rise for the boat transfer in 2006
