MARINE RESERVES IN MALLORCA: DRAGONERA
DIVE IN DEEP BLUE WATERS OF GREAT BEAUTY
Southwest of Mallorca, in the continuation of the Tramuntana ridge, there’s an island called Dragonera which was declared as Natural Park in 1995. Its crystal clear waters and the geographic isolation makes it one of the most attractive dive spots.
The high cliffs with vertical walls from the surface to 50 meters of depth attract big pelagic species. The caves with air pockets are one of the special features that can be found in this island.
Even though the Dragonera island was declared as a Natural Park in 1995, the marine area was only protected recently, declared a marine reserve in 2016. This marine reserve is home to a great diversity of habitats and to an abundant marine life in a relatively small area.
The beautiful underwater landscapes stand out for its intense blue waters, and for its interesting rock formations. The most attractive features are the vertical wall that falls to 50 meters of depth gives us the chance to observing big pelagic species; and the cave of the window with its air pocket and the window that overlooks the sea and the cliff. Diving in this environment is a unique experience.
The dives of Dragonera can be qualified as spectacular. They will allure you!
