Heading from Fornells Cove towards Andratx – Port of Andratx, we come to the enchanting locality of Sant Elm, situated directly opposite this small island.
Sa Dragonera, situated to the west of the island of Mallorca, enjoys protection as a designated Nature Park. 3,200 metres long and 500 wide, it has a very steep and irregular relief, its highest peak being Na Pòpia, at 360 m.
It’s separated from Mallorca by a small shallow channel of 800 metres at its widest point, with a sandy floor partly covered by posidonia oceanica (Neptune grass) – a veritable underwater forest, and a habitat for many of the marine species of our coastline.
From Sant Elm one can go on excursions to the area of the island and enjoy the wonderful views and waters that surround it.
On Sa Dragonera we’ll find very varied birds and land fauna: seagulls, cormorants, falcons and the fish eagle, amongst others, form part of a great variety of birds that live there all year round or in certain seasons. It’s an ideal spot for lovers of nature in its pure state and for nature photographers.
