Marine Reserves

Balearic Islands Marine Reserves

With seven declared marine reserves, the Balearic Islands are Spain’s autonomous region with the most marine protected areas, reaching 49,000 ha in total (18% of inland waters). It sets a good example in the Mediterranean that it is possible to reconcile fishing and marine conservation.

Asociación Ondine in collaboration with Govern de les Illes Balears, Marina Port de Mallorca & Marina Palma Cuarentena have begun the process of public awareness in regards to local marine reserves. We are in the early stages of collaborating and translating all relevant information from the government website to assist you, boat owners and crew, in your understanding of how these marine reserves are managed and what you need to do to visit these amazing places, legally.

Follow the drop down menu and links to find information on each individual marine reserve, should you have any questions simply email us here or call on 0034 971916165.

Please don´t ignore whats underneath you!
