Formentera Diving

July 6, 2012 by · Leave a Comment 

The island of Formentera has unbeatable characteristics for diving. Ibiza and Formentera (the Pitiusa Islands) have surprisingly transparent and colourful waters. Their coasts form one of the few well-preserved corners of the Mediterranean. There is a good reason why the Freus Marine Reserve of Ibiza and Formentera is located here. It is the only natural area in the whole Mediterranean Sea included on UNESCO’s list of World Heritage Sites. Concerning diving, the first thing to highlight is the excellent visibility (up to 50 metres) and the variety of landscapes characterising the area: caves, walls with sea fans, pieces of wrecks, shallow dives with very beautiful landscapes, posidonia prairies considered the best preserved in the Mediterranean, etc.
