Brit, 24, dies after plunging 65ft from cliff in Ibiza as body recovered from sea by coastguard & two other men rescued | The Sun
A BRITISH tourist has died after plunging 65 feet from a cliff in Ibiza.
The 24-year-old’s body was recovered from the sea by the coastguard while another two men were rescued.
The tragedy struck in the upmarket destination of Cap Martinet near Ibiza Town around 8pm.
Well-placed sources said a witness had told police the unnamed tourist was with another man and both appeared to be “inebriated.”
A spokesman for the Civil Guard confirmed: “We are investigating the death of a British holidaymaker aged 24 in an incident which occurred on Thursday at cliffs in the Cap Martinet area.
“The investigation is at an early stage and it will take more time to get a clearer picture of what exactly happened.”

The force spokesman added: “Firefighters, local police, Civil Guard and coastguards were mobilised after the alarm was raised.
“The dead man’s body was recovered by a coastguard vessel.”
The same coastguards reportedly rescued two other men from the water who are said to have tried to rescue the British holidaymaker after he ended up in the sea.
They were described locally as staff at the five-star Destino Pacha Ibiza Hotel near to where the tourist is believed to have been staying.

Cap Martinet, just two miles away from Ibiza town centre, is home to the island’s VIP crowd and international deluxe guests.
Its high-end luxury villas offer stunning sea views of the Mediterranean Sea and even further away to the neighbouring island of Formentera.
The hotel the holidaymaker is said to have been staying at, which offers exclusive wellness treatments and open-air yoga classes, is in a privileged position on the secluded cliff top of Cap Martinet.
Last month a 55-year-old British tourist died after slipping and plunging nearly 400ft off a cliff while visiting a lighthouse on the paradise island of Formentera.
The London-based holidaymaker fell to his death when he lost his footing around midday on September 13 while visiting La Mola lighthouse, which Jules Verne wrote about in his novel Hector Servadec.
