This nature reserve is the only one in Spain, which covers sea and land at the same time; it contains the largest uninhabited area in the Spanish Mediterranean.
The rocky coast which is barren and mainly consists of slate, is continually broken up by small bays. Fauna and Flora of the area are quite unique and comprise a variety of very rare species of sea-birds in danger of extinction. Winter is domineered by very strong northerly winds which continually hinder fishing and maritime traffic. Therefore the area around the Cap registers a very small environmental pollution and is renowned as underwater paradise for divers
