Marina Ibiza, an ecologically aware, environment-friendly harbour

Marina Ibiza is consolidating its reputation as one of the most environmentally-aware marinas by publishing a leaflet containing tips on caring for the ecologically valuable environment of Ibiza and Formentera. By disseminating this leaflet, Marina Ibiza aims to raise its clients´ awareness of the importance of using boats and the recreational sailing facilities sustainably to protect Ibiza´s flora and fauna. The tips are geared towards making big energy savings and using water efficiently, and preventing polluting waste from leaking out by conducting periodic maintenance of boats.

While sailing, Marina Ibiza advocates respecting marine flora and fauna by not anchoring in protected areas and cruising at a moderate speed to save fuel and reduce levels of pollution. In addition, the marina recommends paying special attention when sailing through Formentera´s Natural Park of Ses Salines, whose unspoilt, crystal-clear seawater provides the essential conditions in which posidonia meadows are able to flourish.

An environment-friendly harbour committed to the ecologically valuable environment of Ibiza and Formentera

Marina Ibiza applies a high level of environmental awareness to every detail of its facilities: the non-polluting electric shuttles which serve as client conveyances, the numerous bins and points for the selective collection of waste oils, wastewater and other classes of waste, and the "green-lung" areas of the harbour´s walks and pontoons.
