Isn't he gorgeous, the "Sleeping Dragon"? Would you like to see him once awake? No problem - but it is a bit smaller, there are thousands of them, they are fairly quick and also very hungry for fruits.Mallorca's little sister "Dragonera" is adorned with many small lizards (Podarcis lilfordi), a subspecies of the Balearic lizard. They are trusting and when you make a rest and unwrap your food, they come crawling and even want to participate in the picnic. They were finally home there before the arrival of the humans.Beside the lizards there are still hawks and various seabirds, who call the Isla Dragonera their home. But the best way is, to visit the Dragonera Island yourself and discover for example the caves that served as hiding places for the pirates and later for the sea smugglers. The island is also a popular hiking destination.
How do you get to the Dragon Island in a comfortable way?
We recommend to visit the island with Cruceros Cormoran. It is the largest provider of boat trips on the south-west coast and the price / performance ratio is good. Everyday at 11:00h the ships leave from the beaches Palmira and Tora to Dragonera.The excursion takes 5 hours and you have one hour free time on dragonera to enjoy its beauty. Take a walk and meet its only inhabitants (lizards) or visit the museum. The lunch is included and you have also a big swim stop, where you can take a refreshing bath in the crystal clear water.
You can buy the tickets on the boulevard and at the beaches or you can make it online. To the page of Cruceros Cormoran.
