Buoys in posidonia zones.

LThe meadows of the marine plant Posidonia oceanica are the main community of the Mediterranean coast, and they comprise an ecosystem with important functions: trapping sediment, contributing to the oxygenation of the water and attracting numerous species of animals and plants that find refuge and nourishment within it. For this reason it is forbidden to anchor over posidonia, and infractions are penalised with fines that may exceed 3,000 Euros. In Cala Blava, Sa Dragonera / Sant Elm, which have specially protected marine areas rich in Posidonia seagrass, anchoring is only permitted with special buoys that must be reserved in advance through the website Reservations can be made until 9 am on the day of arrival in the buoy zone. Visitors must moor to the buoy between 12 and 6 pm on the day of arrival. On the day of your departure, the buoy must be left free before 11 am. When no buoys are available, anchoring is only permitted in sandy areas outside the perimeter of the zone, and care must be taken not to damage the posidonia with the anchor and chain.
