An oil rig is going to block Ibiza’s iconic sunset

An oil rig is to be built off the west coast of Ibiza, blocking the island’s iconic sunset, as Mixmag reports.

Spanish contractor Tonto Perforacion has won the rights to start drilling off the shore of San Antonio, the famous White Isle town famed for its beach bars that offer spectacular views of the sunset.

Venues like Cafe Del Mar and Cafe Mambo that invite DJs to soundtrack the sunset draw hundreds of revellers every night and have become the stuff of Balearic legend.
