The Mediterranean Sea has a magic attraction for most people living in the centre or north of Europe, as it is a symbol of always-sunny weather, comfortable climate and a relaxed way of living. Especially during wintertime, when the weather is cold and grey in England, Wales or Scotland, the temperatures along the Spanish Mediterranean shore are mild and highly enjoyable.
Thanks to the more than 300 days of sunshine the area offers, a burial in the Mediterranean Sea is not only a special location for one last journey but also a unique moment which will last forever, in memory of a loved one. Without a doubt, a burial in the Mediterranean Sea encourages positive thoughts about life and eternity.
ANYWHERE IN THE MEDITERRANEAN
ad mediterraneum organizes burials at sea anywhere in the Spanish Mediterranean, whether along the Costa Blanca or the Costa del Sol or on the Balearic Islands as Majorca or Ibiza. Although we have our boat in Valencia, we often rent ships in other harbours so we can correspond to wishes regarding a special spot or landscape.
ASPECTS OF THE CEREMONY
There are two ways that a burial at sea can take place. Either the ashes are scattered on the water or the closed urn will be buried into the ground. In the case of the former, a biodegradable urn is required.
We try to suit your wishes as best as we possibly can, whether that is spreading petals, reading out poems during the ceremony or proposing a special toast. For us each natural funeral is unique and will be executed with the utmost respect, satisfying the last will of the deceased and the wishes of the relatives.

BURIAL AT SEA WITHOUT PRESENCE OF RELATIVES
There is also the possibility that relatives are unable to travel to Spain, in which case, ad mediterraneum can undertake the burial at sea ceremony without the presence of relatives. A certificate is issued, which confirms the date and the precise place (GPS coordinates) of the ceremony.
