National Parks to visit by caravan (part II)

#1. Cabrera Archipelago National Park

This park is a group of islets located about an hour by boat from Mallorca (approximately 10 nautical miles). Due to its, between quotes, difficult access, the park has remained practically intact, preserving a large part of the coastal landscape of Cabrera (it is considered one of the best in the Mediterranean).

About 120,000 people visit this park a year, the fourteenth in number of visits nationwide. It was declared a National Park in April 1991 and is considered one of the richest and most interesting bird and species centers.

#2. Caldera de Taburiente national park

The island of La Palma (Santa Cruz de Tenerife) is the place that houses this wonder of nature. This park is the result of the evolution of centuries and centuries of volcanic eruptions that have formed a truly extraordinary place.

It was the second area of the Canary archipelago to be declared a protected area (after Teide). Thanks to the mild climate of the islands, any time of the year is considered optimal for visiting the park.

Good article, thanks for the information

Good afternoon. I am totally new to these caravanning issues, and I already knew that in Spain we have many and very good national parks, but upon entering this page I was hoping and I hope you could inform me of the sites and special routes for motorhomes and campers, specifically, places where you can park. or camping or refilling drinking water or electricity or emptying the gray or black tank, without having to enter a campsite, that information from Spain and the rest of Europe would be a real luxury.
Thanks a lot.
A greeting.
