The large presence of jellyfish forces a Dénia beach to place the warning flag

August 11 from 2023 - 13: 55

The watchdog service beaches de Dénia has reported the presence of a large number of jellyfish in one of the coastal areas of the city. So much so that they have been forced, for the first time this year, to raise the flag that warns of it.

Jellyfish have arrived in Dénia, and en masse. Specifically, it is the carnation jellyfish, an old acquaintance of our coast that is not particularly dangerous but its sting is very annoying. More than the usual fried egg and jelly.

The flag has been placed on the post on the beach Punta del Raset, where the jellyfish have washed ashore, caution is recommended to swimmers. However, large groups have been reported along almost the entire coast, but still at a distance from the beach.

    Good afternoon. We are going on the 24th, where could I find out if the jellyfish problem continues?
    We know that in La Marineta there are always algae, but in Les Marines, which is where we go, they are not usually there.
    Thanks greetings

    The algae that were on the beach last Monday were removed throughout the day, if you have come on vacation to be on the beach, learn before you come that if there is a storm the algae come out
    And there is also more beach area, my goodness…
    Go somewhere else if you have so much complaint

    It's not just the jellyfish, we have been in that area for a few days and bathing was an impossible task, the sea was covered with a large carpet of algae, and the barrier that it formed on the shore made access impossible, it is not understood why it was not They carried out cleaning operations at night, so that the bathers the next day would not live surrounded by seaweed, without a doubt a bad management that has made our vacation fail, I will not return to Denia.

    And they are also confused with the posodonia that is on the shore.
    A complete nonsense the existing dirt on the beaches of Les Marines with so much posidonia not collected, bad smells, dirt and a deplorable image for our coast.
    I know that there will be criticism for this comment, but as many of us who use our beach say, we do not want to know the characteristics of the posidonia, but rather to be able to bathe in clean and attractive places.

    On the beach of Les Bovetes, and despite the fact that the shore was full of jellyfish, not only was the green flag waving, but there was no indication that there were any. People bathed and I have seen more than one that has been stung by a jellyfish having to be treated at the Red Cross post😡😡

      Jolines, what a tragedy, huh? I already see the new Hollywood blockbuster with such a drama. Those people, didn't they enter by the shore? When he did, didn't he see the jellyfish? If so, wasn't that enough of a clue to tell you to stay out of the water? Natural selection has these things, cretinism is advancing by leaps and bounds and the odd person seems to have caught it squarely.
