Invasion of jellyfish at Playa Jardín in Puerto de la Cruz

imagePuerto de la Cruz town hall has prohibited swimming, but not closed the beach.

A veritable plague of jellyfish has left bathers on the Playa Jardín in Puerto de la Cruz in Tenerife unable to take a dip.

Lifeguards say they have had to remove hundreds of these creatures from the water’s edge in the last couple of days.

The jellyfish measure up to 20 cm across and can be dangerous, thus the town hall, to avoid people receiving painful stings, have decided to prohibit swimming.
