This Monday, the Port Authority of the Balearic Islands (APB) has started the works of adaptation of the environment and the façade of the main office building of the APB in Eivissa, located in the access to the North docks.

This project also aims to improve the pedestrian space around the building and will create a bicycle lane on each side of the road.
The president and director of the Port Authority of the Balearic Islands (APB), Francesc Antich and Jorge Nasarre, visited the recently reopened exhibition of maritime signals at the Portopí lighthouse. Both followed the explanations of the guides, who accompanied them throughout the tour.
After a few months of preparation, the exhibition has some interesting new features, such as the restored lantern of the Llebeig lighthouse, which can be seen at the entrance to the exhibition, and a video showing details of the restoration and replacement of this same lantern.
2022 will be a year of anniversaries: the 150th since the creation of the Harbour Board and the 30th of the Port Authority of the Balearic Islands as we refer to it today. And such a unique year deserved an equally special calendar. This comes from the creativity of Georgina Gamundi, who has captured in images 12 places linked to the sea. The organism’s Christmas Card is also her work and represents the lighting appliances of the Balearic Island lighthouses.
Throughout this year, the Balearic Islands Port Authority (APB) will celebrate the 150th anniversary of the founding of the Board of Works for the Port of Palma (the organisation that gave rise to the APB) and the 30th anniversary of the APB as we know it today.
A wide range of activities will take place during this year of celebration and looking ahead to the future. From publications and exhibitions to conferences and spectacular cultural events, the five ports will host an extensive programme of activities for residents to enjoy as the year unfolds.
