Posidonia Oceanica, Islas Baleares
Posidonia Ocenica, a marine plant that promotes transparent waters
The waters ringing the Balearic Islands are oxygenated and filtered by posidonia oce├ínica, which gives them the transparency so highly-prized by divers and swimmers.
Balearic Islands have exceptional beaches and peerless diving conditions, thanks its clear, clean waters. One of the main reasons for this is the presence of Posidonia Oce├ínica, an angiosperm marine plant that promotes transparent waters, prevents erosion and serves as a habitat for a wide array of ocean fauna. In fact, the waters of the Natural Reserve of Ses Salinas in Ibiza and Formentera are home to some of the finest beds of Posidonia Oce├ínica in the Mediterranean, in terms of conservation.
