Dragonera Island Tour, Majorca, 12th September 2014

So after our mad trip to the Nit de Foc we took a down day, but on the last day of holiday we wanted to go on another trip. We decided the Dragonera Island boat tour could be fun.

Sa Dragonera is an uninhabited islet in the Balearic Islands, located just off the west coast of Majorca. It is approximately 3,200 metres in length and has a maximum width of 500 metres. The silhouette of the mountain range vaguely resembles a dragon, hence its name.

Whilst the island historically has mainly been uninhabited, there are examples of watch towers from the 1800’s (to spot pirates) and a Roman necropolis.

Jetty on the island.

The island is home to thousands of small lizards, they are quite bold and you can get really close.

As the island is not habited, they have no reason to fear humans.

It wasn’t uncommon to see many lizards in one place, at times they were literally swarming around the walls.

The island for a time was used for agricultural use, these are the remains.

Leaving the island and heading back to Santa Ponsa.

I mentioned in the pictures that lizards were everywhere, they are, in the rocks, in the walls.

I took a video whilst there, it’s not amazing but you can see on it just how many hang around there.

This is the last report from our Honeymoon, I hope you have enjoyed looking at time as much as I did taking them.

Hopefully I will get back to my normal photography soon enough.

As always, thanks for looking.
