The Port Authority of the Balearic Islands (APB) supports Majorca’s candidature as Sustainable Tourism Observatory, with a view to it becoming an important tool in positioning the island as a more sustainable, safe, modern, and quality destination. This was evident in today’s online event whose participants included the president of APB, Francesc Antich, the Tourism and Sports minister at the Council of Majorca, Andreu Serra, the CEO of AnySolution, Dolores Ordóñez, and the head of Quality, Environment, Innovation and CSR department at APB, Jorge Martín.


This Tuesday, the Palma Fire Brigade received a new lightweight fire engine on loan from the Port Authority of the Balearic Islands (APB). It is designed to operate in areas with very limited mobility such as the old districts of cities and the ports themselves. Thus, the vehicle can make sharp turns in narrow streets, given its small dimensions and lightweight design.

The approximate cost of this fire engine is €200,000, which have been paid by the APB. The Palma City Council, in turn, has provided the equipment, amounting to €18,000.


Everything is now ready for the top players in the national and international sailing industry to come together at this innovative online meeting organised by the Majorca Chamber of Commerce and the Balearic Marine Cluster, with the support of the Port Authority of the Balearic Islands.

We invite you to navigate through the Balearic Yacht Show, the first virtual nautical show in the Balearics, where more than 80 national and international companies will be showcasing their products and services, as well as taking advantage of this meeting to generate synergies.


The cooperation between the Port Authority of the Balearic Islands (APB) and the Minorca Island Council has been further strengthened with the signing of an agreement on fire prevention, firefighting, rescue and civil defence, in order to optimise the resources and equipment available and to increase safety in the port area.


This morning a demonstration of the innovative system for cleaning the water surface and combating marine pollution in the ports of Ibiza and La Savina, which has been in service for three weeks, was given to the media. 

The Port Authority of the Balearic Islands' representative for the ports of Ibiza and La Savina, Ignacio Revilla Alonso, and Noelia Sosa Puig, an oceanographer and graduate in Marine Sciences from Patena, the joint venture that won the Port Authority of the Balearic Islands' service contract, presented the system at the Port of Ibiza. 


The Port Authority of the Balearic Islands (APB) is supporting Majorca's candidacy as a Sustainable Tourism Observatory, using this as an important tool to position Majorca as a more sustainable, safe, modern, high-quality destination.

The APB believes that this initiative is an important tool for changing its tourism model to make it more sustainable, and make Majorca a benchmark for sustainable tourism, given that this Observatory would be the only second in Spain, the eighth in the European Union and the 31st in the world.


The Port Authority of the Balearic Islands (APB) Board of Directors today agreed to tender the temporary occupancy permit for the management of the moorings for small and medium-sized boats administered by the Ibiza Yacht Club in the Port of Ibiza.

The Port Authority of the Balearic Islands (APB) has completed the restoration work on the roof of the Alcanada lighthouse in Alcudia. The renovation consisted of rebuilding the roof's support structure which, due to its poor condition, was discharging all its weight on the perimeter walls, and the installation of new roof tiles. In addition, the façade was painted, the interiors were rendered and joinery items were replaced.

The work, which lasted two and a half months, was tendered to the company Vip Property Integral Services.
