We love Posidonia! It’s one of the reasons the waters of the Balearic Islands are so clear.
In 2006 a huge prairie of “Posidonia oceanica” sea grass was discovered south of Ibiza. At 8 km across and possibly up to 100,000 years old, it may be one of the largest and oldest living posidonia meadows on earth, so it must be protected.
Note: It is Balearic Law that all vessels must anchor on sandy bottoms and that both the anchor and the chain must not touch or damage the sea grass. Fines can be in excess of 1000 Euros for anchoring on the wrong spot.
