This area of Mallorca is blessed with glorious countryside. The main island off the coast is Sa Dragonera, which has been a Natural Park since 1995. You can take a short boat trip over to the island and explore the hiking trails & coves, and get friendly with the many native lizards who live here! The other Nature Reserve on the mainland is La Trappe. The remains of a village surrounding an ancient monastery are here and there are spectacular views out to sea and over to Sa Dragonera island.
As you might expect, this lovely scenery attracts hikers and cyclists, and there are plenty of trails to follow. Hiking maps are available at the tourist offices.
