In recognition of their efforts to reduce negative impacts on the environment, the three marinas of the IPM Group – Marina Port de Mallorca, Marina Palma Cuarentena and Marina Ibiza – have again received the Blue Flag. 

The flag, bestowed by the not-for-profit Foundation for Environmental Education, certifies the highest standards of quality in service and facilities as they relate to environmental protection.
