By setting foot on the island you already start to notice a different feeling, the aroma of the sea, the air and the sun are intertwined to create an atmosphere that makes you feel happy.
The first sites date from the Romans and since then many civilizations have populated the island, do not leave without discovering its secrets.
It is the first marine reserve in Spain, since 1986. In order to preserve the fauna and flora of the area, consisting of many typical Tabarca species, such as birds and fish.
