We're all trying to be greener with our travel these days, so the idea of discovering Ibiza on a zero-emissions boat is an attractive one. Solar-powered catamaran experience, La Bella Verde, has added two new green boats to its existing eco-friendly fleet that are powered by wind and solar energy.
They provide visitors with the experience of exploring a selection of the most beautiful and secluded coves in the Spanish Balearic coastline, while minimising their carbon footprint. They depart daily until mid-October from Las Salinas beach, part of the island’s protected natural parks and home to a diverse ecosystem that stretches from south east Ibiza to Formentera.
Hosting a number of vessels for a range of needs, from small groups of five right through to large groups of 30, each full-day trip allows for a complete exploration of the turquoise waters and the white-sand coves of Formentera and its nearby isles. Guests enjoy gourmet lunches on board or on a secluded beach.
As a charitable endeavour, 1% of every eco-charter is donated to the recently-launched La Bella Verde Foundation. It is designed to protect the biodiversity of Salinas Natural Park including the Posidonia, a rare seagrass endemic to the Mediterranean Sea in Ibiza, as well as supporting local businesses to become plastic-free and minimise their environmental impact. Founded with a vision to transform the boating industry and create a movement to protect aquatic life while supporting marine preservation, La Bella Verde plans to evolve internationally and inspire others to adopt a more sustainable approach.
Through the launch of an innovative boat-building service this autumn, companies and individuals from around the world will be able to own a custom-built, carbon-neutral catamaran. The La Bella Verde Foundation will establish itself at each new location, continuing to preserve and protect our oceans at an international level.
