Small yachts can be seen lined up close to the shoreline of the Freus nature reserve – a site of community interest – and party-goers on flyboards can be seen hovering above the water. 

Fifteen of the boats, of various lengths, were moored side by side about 30 metres from the coast with two, which played the music, nearer the coast.

The Civil Guard’s nature protection service, Seprona, has since filed a report against the charter company for breaching the rules.

The Spanish press says the party was organised by a boat company based in Ibiza, which offers different services and nautical experiences with their boats.

However, the name of the company has not yet been confirmed by the local council or Civil Guard.

Formentera Council has filed a complaint with the Civil Guard and maritime authority and says it will asking the Balearic Government to impose sanctions.

Police have warned they will be carrying out regular patrols this summer and any illegal party boats will be raided and the organisers fined.

If the boats cause damage in the protected area, they can face fines of between 6,000 to 450,000 euros (£5,225 to £392,075), according to local media.
