Tourists banned from beach after hundreds of deadly jellyfish wash up in Lanzarote

Tourists have been banned from going in the water at a popular beach after hundreds of mysterious jellyfish with poisonous tentacles washed up on the sand.

The startling invasion took place at Famara beach on the north-western coastline of Lanzarote, one of the Spanish Canary Islands.

The as yet unidentified jellyfish first appeared on Monday.

Their numbers quickly increased and by Wednesday hundreds were washing up on the sand.



The jellyfish corpses littered the beach

A video taken on the beach shows countless jellyfish strewn across the beach in a dense mass of dead sea animal.

Enrique Espinosa, director of the local Safety and Emergencies Consortium, called the beaching “a total atrocity”.



Thousands of Brits flock to the Canary Islands every year

He said that the red flag is waving at the beach to warn people it is not safe to bathe.

A quick touch of the animals’ tentacles causes a painful sting.



The beach can be quite a tourist attraction when not covered in jellyfish

Local authorities advised victims to immediately see a lifeguard to have the tentacles removed and to receive prescription painkillers to reduce the swelling.

While this jellyfish invasion is mercifully far away from Britain’s shores, the gelatinous animal are an increasingly common site on the country’s shores.

In April beach goers were shocked to find a jellyfish the size of a dustbin lid washed up on a Perranporth Beach in Cornwall.

The barrel jellyfish is the largest found in UK seas.

It has been suggested overfishing of the jellyfish’s natural predators and global warming is leading to their proliferation in British waters.
