There are no developments allowed, no jet skies, no noise. There are paths on the island that you cannot stray from to protect the wildlife and fauna. We took a short hike up the hill to visit castle ruins which offers spectacular views. There are no restaurants or shops, only one bar that we were told offers drinks only but it turns out they also offered some very tasty tapas. We enjoyed drinks and tapas with friends from Belgium as they were anchored there with their HR 53. They were so helpful with information going forward in our trip this summer as they have toured the area prior. This was their 6th visit to Cabrera. The only negative aspect to Cabrera is that you are allowed a one night stay only during peak season and a 2 night stay off peak season. It was very hard to release the line from the buoy and leave after such a short visit. There are 50 mooring buoys in the bay called Puerto de Cabrera.
We booked a buoy in the national park on the island of Cabrera so it was time to move on. This turned out to be a favorite! What a beautiful and peaceful bay surrounded by rugged hills.
As not every buoy can handle any length vessel, it is recommended to book a buoy as far in advance as possible.
