Posidonia and Beach Formentera

Nobu Ibiza Bay x Ibiza Preservation Fund

For tens of thousands of years, underwater meadows called Posidonia have produced oxygen for the island of Ibiza, however they are now under threat. That's why, at Nobu Ibiza Bay, we've partnered with Ibiza Preservation to help conserve this unique natural environment.

For thousands of years, underwater meadows called Posidonia have produced oxygen for the island of Ibiza, purified coastal waters, prevented coastal erosion and served as an important breeding ground for marine life. Despite being declared a Unesco World Heritage site, uncontrolled boat anchoring and pollution have destroyed thousands of square meters of Posidonia, and more losses could have a serious impact on our ecosystem.

Here, at Nobu Ibiza Bay, we can see these majestic underwater prairies in action in the waters of Talamanca Bay and have made helping to protect them part of who we are. We partner with Ibiza Preservation who, for over 12 years, has worked to protect Ibiza and Formentera’s natural environment. We include a discretionary 1€ donation to your bill upon checkout, to help fund their essential work.

Another fantastic partner is Love Brand who, in collaboration with Ibiza Preservation, have launched a special collection sold at our El Almacen boutique to raise funds to protect the underwater meadows. Inspired by how the Posidonia is woven into all aspects of Ibiza life, Love Brand have created the Sea Weave Collection of linen shirts and swim shorts in aqua and deep blue hues to mimic the seagrass shadows in the crystal clear waters around Ibiza and Formentera.

If you want to learn more about Posidonia why not try our Beyond Ibiza Bay experience of a diving adventure with marine biologist Manu San Felix. A Formentera native and conservationist, he works with Ibiza Preservation and can take you on a guided underwater tour of this incredible natural environment and tell us what we can do to preserve it for generations to come.
