Ibiza is a relatively easy sailing area and is suitable for less experienced crews. There are few major navigational challenges, the flows are low and the influence of the tides is insignificant. However, the area between Ibiza and Formentera requires caution as there are some rocks and shoals. If you follow the safe and reliable buoys, you will have no trouble. The shoal La Bota, about 1 nautical mile northwest of the Isla Es Vedra is a known but unmarked danger zone, as just beneath the surface there is a large rock. In contrast to the northern Balearic Islands, the wind conditions in Ibiza are influenced by the African mainland.
