The Aula del Mar marine conservation team recorded higher numbers of the pelagia noctiluca and rhizostoma luteum species last week, with increasing numbers spotted around beaches in Nerja, Benalmádena, Fuengirola and Marbella. The rhizostoma luteum in particular is known for its impressive size, measuring 60-90cm. According to a tourists that he havebeen coming to the Costa del Sol for 20 years and this has never happened before. If you want to take your kids into the sea around here, you have to bring a net, it’s that bad. Warnings have been issued on various beaches over the past week, with Malaga council reporting that the city’s beaches were flying yellow flags to alert holidaymakers to the high presence of jellyfish. Similar warnings were issued on beaches along the Granada coast, including Almuñécar. However, there is a slight relief as it started in mid-August and has not affected the month of July.

There were a series of ideal conditions to create a high presence of jellyfish in the Alboran Sea.
