The Port Authority of the Balearic Islands (APB) is to build a public underground car park, consisting of up to 460 spaces, at the Lonja dock at the Port of Palma. With this infrastructure, the APB will eliminate around 150 of the existing aboveground parking spaces and it will spruce up the area, converting it into a car-free zone with garden areas for pedestrians.



The freight traffic statistics for the ports of general interest in the Balearic Islands indicate that 15.4 million tonnes passed through the 5 ports managed by the Port Authority of the Balearic Islands (APB) in 2017.

All of the ports have experienced an increase in traffic volume except for Mahon, which was down 3% on 2016. The ports of Alcudia and La Savina have seen the biggest increase in traffic, up 17% and 7%, respectively. The ports of Palma and Ibiza have also seen an increase, up 4% and 3%, respectively.


The Port Authority of the Balearic Islands (APB) will update the El Molinar facilities at the Port of Palma whilst preserving its current dimensions, with the same water surface area and the same breakwater. Likewise, it is expected that the number of mooring points and type of existing boats will remain the same. This will help prevent the intensity of port use from rising, and therefore the accessibility and mobility problems that could otherwise be caused in the neighbourhood.


At the close of the January renewal period, it can be seen that 68.7 per cent of mooring requests directly managed by the ports of Palma, Alcudia, Mahon and Ibiza were made through the website of the Port Authority of the Balearic Islands (APB). It is a symptom of the good health of this platform and the predisposition of users to use innovative and more operational systems such as this tool that makes the port authority available to citizens.


The Port Authority of the Balearic Island (APB) has put out to public tender the management of mooring points in the area of the d’en Reynés boatyard in the Levante dock at the Port of Mahon. The aim of this tender is to grant temporary authorisation to manage a total water surface area of 10,900 square metres and 224 metres of dock line.


The Port Authority of the Balearic Islands (APB) will reveal the current situation and foreseeable future of the sailing clubs located at the ports of general interest on the islands by organising a conference open to the public.

The event, under the slogan "The future of sailing clubs in the Balearic Islands. The continuity of concessions at Ports of General Interest", will welcome speakers who will assess the legal framework under which social sailing falls within the state port model and present proposals for improvements to the El Molinar facilities at the Port of Palma.


The Port Authority of the Balearic Islands (APB) has started the replacement and improvement works on the foundations of the dock pontoons. The project entails the replacement of six pontoons that were in a bad condition and could have collapsed, for new reinforced-concrete slabs, specifically designed for current environmental conditions.

La Savina

The Port Authority of the Balearic Islands (APB) has today carried out a drill on the containment of marine pollution in the zone 1 sheltered waters at the Port of La Savina.

The exercise consisted of simulating a hypothetical oil spill from a tanker at the commercial quay, where the petrol station at this port is located. In order to contain this spill, a 150-metre barrier against marine pollution was placed, which the APB expressly purchased for this port.


The Port Authority of the Balearic Islands (APB) has completed the improvement and refurbishment works on the Torreón de Paraires tower in the Port of Palma.
The project consisted of rebuilding the internal and external structure of the Paraires turret, which was in a poor condition, in order to recover a heritage asset in the Port of Palma.


The Port Authority of the Balearic Islands (APB) has put to tender a two-year contract that can be extended for another two years for the maintenance of the lighthouses, beacons and buoys it manages on the Balearic Islands. The invitation to tender was published in the Official State Gazette on 16 December 2017 and the deadline for proposals is fixed for 2 February 2018 at 14:00.
