Hiking to napepia on the Dragon Island

Hiking to napepia on the Dragon Island

One of the most fun excursions we can do in mallorca is to get closer to the island of the dragon Island, refuge of pirates and protected natural space full of “dragons”, in which we will be able to make a very cool and simple hiking route to the end of the world. Na pòpia is the highest point of this unique island in which a defensive watch was raised back and then a lighthouse that helped the sailors in the navigation. This tour will take us to the remains of this ancient lighthouse and will make us think about how the lighthouses and so families lived on a completely isolated island.

To get to the island of dragonera we must go in boat in one of the many companies that are dedicated to it. Once on the island we can first pass through the interpretation center that will provide us with information and data concerning our excursion. We will pass below the houses of the park and a little later we deviate to a road to the right.

As we go to the summit we will see countless nests of seagulls and as we go up on the horizon the island of mallorca will emerge. Once we get here we can stop to rest and eat before we get back to the starting point. As we are in a natural park we must be very respectful of the environment, not interfere in the lives of any of the animals we encounter, nor leave any remains of rubbish.

We recommend carrying some food and plenty of water for the road because we will not find a place to fill the cantimplores. On this excursion, due first to the travel to the island and then to the extensive route, we will lose a full day to do it.
