The fauna and flora of the Balearic Islands, typically Mediterranean, concentrates the greatest diversity in its marine environment, where you will find more than 400 species of fish, hundreds of crustaceans and invertebrates and seabirds, among which the endemic species of the Balearic paddle. But the jewel in the crown of our seabed is undoubtedly the Oceanic Posidonia marine plant that forms meadows that serve as shelter and food for many species, in addition to oxygenate and clean the waters being responsible for the crystalline color so characteristic of the waters of the islands.
Oceanic Posidonia is an endemic marine plant in the Mediterranean that is not found in any other sea in the world. The seabed of the islands of Ibiza and Formentera are home to the largest living organism in the world, extensive prairies of oceanic Posidonia eight kilometers long with more than 100,000 years of life, declared World Heritage by UNESCO.
This underwater forest, which extends from Es Freus (Formentera) to the beach of Ses Salines (Ibiza), is the habitat of numerous species and is responsible for the transparency and turquoise color of the waters of Ibiza and Formentera, making them one of the best places in the Mediterranean to dive.
Among the posidonia live numerous species that find food and protection here, a safe environment to mate and lay eggs, where the young grow up in a kind of nursery with abundant food. One of them is the seahorse (Hippocampus ramulosus), with its chess piece shape camouflaging itself in search of small invertebrates and larvae. There are also numerous small fish, such as goldfish, maidens and scorpines, among many others.
