La Savina has two marinas that offer facilities for mooring boats that decide to navigate these waters every summer. But there are also several companies that are dedicated to the rental of all types of boats, both with skipper or without. Boat charters are another possibility to discover the island from the sea, since it allows you to have a totally different vision of the beauty of this environment, such as its landscapes, cliffs and caves that are inaccessible from land but can be accessed from the sea.
From there they present themselves as virgin spots. The turquoise water around Formentera is, thanks to the presence of the posidonia meadows, the main attraction for nautical tourism. There are also fields of ecological buoys in Es Caló de s’Oli and in S’Espalmador that can be booked through the Balearic Government website. The skippers and most of the crews have already realized, after years of campaigns, that it is forbidden to anchor on the Posidonia meadows.
There is a Balearic law that protects this marine plant, with penalties for those who invade it. In addition, the most sensitive area has a surveillance and anchoring advice service. Those who want to know and photograph the secrets that the seabed has in store, have at their disposal several diving schools that provide all the equipment and transportation to make dream dives.
From beginners to the most advanced, they will find in the waters of Formentera the perfect environment to practice this sport. The richness of the underwater ecosystem is a constant subject for studies, and throughout the year missions are organized by scientific entities to improve the state of preservation of the most important natural resource the Pitiüses have, the posidonia.
