Explore The Dragon Island of Mallorca: Sa Dragonera

Sa Dragonera Wandertour

The Dragon Island of Mallorca is actually called Sa Dragonera. Is it named that way because it resembles a sleeping dragon in the sea? That would be a great tale, but unfortunately it’s not true. The name is rather attributed to relatives of dinosaurs. They still inhabit the protected island today, making the excursion to Dragon Island (or Dinosaur Island, if you like) an unforgettable experience for young explorers.

The gorge Torrent de Pareis is one of the most impressive natural landmarks of Mallorca. This Grand Canyon of Mallorca was formed by the powerful force of the intermittent stream that flows into the sea not far from the small port of Port de Sa Calobra. Hiking through the Torrent de Pareis doesn’t necessarily require exceptional athletic abilities. If you only explore the mouth of the gorge, it can be easily done with children. In this article, you will find tips on what to consider during your exploration.

Dolphins in Mallorca: The Best Dolphin Watching Tours

Delfine auf Mallorca

Dolphins in Mallorca aren’t actually that spectacular—at least not for fishermen who venture out to sea before the first rays of sunlight. Because that’s precisely when these friendly marine mammals become active. And clever as they are, they know that there’s quick food available near the fishing boats. Therefore, the dolphins often accompany the boats. It’s a unique opportunity for us landlubbers as well to experience these impressive creatures up close in their natural habitat. There are numerous dolphin watching tours in Mallorca, and I’ll explain the different options in detail here.

Because in addition to the crystal-clear water ideal for swimming, there’s also a picturesque viewpoint by an old watchtower.
