A BRITISH holidaymaker has been found floating dead in the sea off a popular Ibizan holiday cove.
The 33-year-old is believed to have drowned although a police investigation will now be carried out to determine the cause of death.
The alarm was raised this afternoon after the man was spotted apparently lifeless in the water at upmarket Cala Jondal in the municipality of San Jose in the south-west of the island.
Lifeguards got him to a nearby boat and tried to revive him before emergency responders took over after reaching the scene.
There was nothing they could do to save him and he was pronounced dead at the scene.
Emergency services were alerted around 3.15pm on Friday.
