Buoy field. Cala del Pi de la posada

The underwater meadows of Posidonia oceanica such as those found in the Bay of Formentor, form the most important marine ecosystems in the Mediterranean sea and are home to the greatest diversity of species. They play a crucial role in the conservation of the coastal ecosystems as these prairies of Posidonia slow down erosion of the beaches, they are the main source of sandy sediment in the Balearic Islands and help keep the coastal waters clear and transparent.

This is why the Bay of Formentor has been declared a Site of Community Importance (SCI) and therefore it is forbidden to drop anchor.

To prevent vessels from harming the posidonia with their anchoring systems, regulated mooring areas have been created where mooring points with a low ecological impact have been installed.
