The Port Authority of the Balearic Islands (APB) is installing mobile speed detectors in the ports of Ibiza and La Savina to regulate and control the maximum sailing speeds in the waters at these two ports of general interest. The measure was implemented this week and will be tested until mid-October.

Checks are being carried out by Port Police officers on a random basis. The Ibiza and Formentera ports are the first to implement this mobile speed control system, although the APB plans to extend it to the rest of the ports it manages.


The Port Authority of the Balearic Islands (APB) has launched an upgrade plan for the creation of portable shaded areas at the ports of Ibiza and La Savina.

These portable awnings have been placed in passenger loading and unloading areas, at bus and taxi stops and in the surroundings of the La Savina and Formentera harbour stations at the port of Ibiza.

The Port Authority of the Balearic Islands (APB) has made the Environmental Scorecard (CMA) available to the public, a service that it launched through the SAMOA project (Meteorological and Oceanographic Support System of the Port Authority). It is a free platform where ocean-meteorological information (wind and waves) can be displayed in both real time and as three-day forecasts.


The Port Authority of the Balearic Islands (APB) has informed the company Solvalgaray Marítima S.L. that it has initiated legal proceedings regarding the expiry of the license for the car park building at the Port of la Savina. The APB grants the company 15 days from the date of notification to submit any arguments they deem appropriate.

The APB believes that this decision is justified by the need to protect the satisfaction of public interest from the incompliance of the obligations undertaken by the concessionaire, who is preventing the public purpose from being fulfilled.
