Shown above is the Agua Blanca (white waters) cove on the northern shore of Ibiza Island, about 90 mi (145 km) off the east coast of Spain. At right, in the foreground, limestone cliffs loom above the narrow beach area. At center, in the mid-ground, stands a volcanic plug or neck, a structure created by magma that hardened within a vent inside what once was an active volcano. Over the eons, this neck has been exposed as the less resistant rock surrounding it eroded away. Photo taken on November 19, 2016.
