Ibiza Island

The director of Ibiza’s Department of Tourism, Vicente Torres, explained in an interview with Pulse yesterday that the island has a “limited capacity” and simply cannot sustain constant increases in tourism. The island is only 572 km², so there are realistic limits to what can be expected from it in terms of potable water, “infrastructures such as roads, treatment and desalination plants, etc.,” and general environmental strains, he said.At this point in time, the island is looking to make changes in order to abate long term effects.
