Nativ Alert: news from Ibiza and Formentera


A recent clean-up of the seabed at s’Estany des Peix in Formentera recovered 500kg of debris, three sunken boats and 1,700 anchors.

The first two electric buses have just arrived in Ibiza. They will help the island save 22,000 litres of diesel fuel and avoid the emission of 54 tonnes of CO2 each year.

The employees of Ibiza’s DC-10 nightclub are the latest to receive an ‘Ask for Angela’ campaign talk by the Nightlife Association. The talk explains the protocol to follow if any sexual assault or harassment happens to customers.

Formentera took first prize in the Best Beach Destination in Spain category at the first National Geographic Travel Readers Awards in May, beating 55 other finalists.

One of the biggest obstacles for new Ibiza farmers is access to farmland – an issue close to the heart of the Land Bank initiative. Seven farms have recently joined the project, adding a total of 43 hectares of once disused agricultural areas. The bank has the capacity to grow, as the island still has 20,000 hectares of disused farmland.

Tourism in Ibiza and Formentera soared by 50% in March compared with 2019, reaching 106.6 million euros. Tourist spending in the Balearic Islands from January to March of this year was also the highest on record.

New figures from the DGT Spanish highway agency reveal that 166,170 fines were given out in the Balearic Islands in 2021. The highest number (38,601) were issued by the fixed radar on the EI-600 on the Sant Antoni highway – that’s more than 100 fines a day.
