Formentera under the sea: we tell you the secret of the island waters.

Formentera is one of the last Mediterranean paradise, with its 20 km of coastline and its wonderful beaches. Its waters attract tourists from all over the World and naturally the island includes among its visitors many norkeling and diving lovers.

Not everyone knows, however, that the beauty of Formentera waters hide a secret: the Posidonia, a plant that grows on the seabed and whose properties maintain the waters clear and the sand soft and firm.

This plant sometimes mistaken for an alga or worse for a form of dirt, has indeed miraculous effects on the marine environment purity due to its filter function, and it also slows the flow of the waves letting the white sand settle over the beaches.

Like all rare and precious treasures of nature, also the Posidonia is fragile. For this reason the island institutions have adopted a series of measures to prevent damaging the boats upon docking.

The island offers of course all the necessary services to divers: diving centers, equipment rentals, private boats rental.

Visiting the depths of Formentera waters is a unique experience and in order to preserve it, the fragile balance of the marine environment must be respected.
