A beach in Ibiza's San Antonio Bay has been closed following reports of an E. coli contamination.
In a statement from a council spokesperson, it was shared that the last water tests from the Ministry of Health of the Balearic Government showed above average levels of E. Coli in the water surrounding Es Caló d'en Serral.
The local council from Sant Josep also issued the following: "Important point: As a result of an episode of biological contamination, we had to close the Calò d'en Serral beach. It will re-open as soon as the tests confirm that normality has been restored”.
The E. coli contamination is reportedly from passing ships releasing human excrement into the water.
