PASSION: Holiday lovemaking could be putting fragile sand dunes at risk

HORNY holidaymakers are damaging Ibiza’s sand dunes by having sex on the beach, environmentalists warn.

The delicate dunes of the Ses Salines Natural Park could be at risk of erosion due to romping tourists.

The beach of es Cavallet has become a hotspot for casual sex and is among Spain’s top hookup locations.

WARNING: Expert biologist Joan Carles Palerm

Protected areas of the beach are fenced off, but couples looking to get it on are frequently jumping over the barriers.

“Free access like this is causing the break-up of the dunes and their structures,” biologist Joan Carles Palerm told Diaro de Mallorca.

He added: “The system that maintains them is very complex and any alteration, such as this continuous activity, fatally affects them.”

PARADISE: Es Cavallet nudist beach where sand dunes are under threat from casual sex

All the outdoor love-making is thought to be disturbing small plants that grow in the dunes that are crucial for the survival of the fragile ecosystem.

Geologists have described the sexual activity in the area as a ‘non-stop frenzy’, while warning Mallorca and Menorca beaches are also under threat.

Es Cavallet is an officially recognised nudist beach and with its 1km of white sand it is also a popular spot for playing volleyball.

The south end of the beach also has an active gay scene and LGBT hookups often begin at the beach’s famous Chiringuito.
