The park, known for its rich flora and fauna, is a Special Bird Protected Area, site of Community importance and part of the Red Natura 2000 Network.
 
Some of the main 322 flora species in the park are rare Iberian-African that already existed when Europe and Africa were one single continent. The park is also home to endangered animal species like spur-thighed turtles, Bonelli's eagles and trumpeter finches, which together with a large number of birds of pray, inland birds, mammals and marine species, form an exceptional asset of great biological value.
 
In Cabo Cope there are also caves in which remains from the Neolithic period were found, as well as an Argarian settlement in Cerro de la Cruz, and the famous 16th century Cope Watchtower built to warn on the sea arrival of Berber pirates.
