Friends of the deceased man raised the alarm after he failed to return after swimming out to the coves, warning the Guardia Civil that he suffered from asthma.

Javea-based coastguards found the holidaymaker’s body in a remote cove near to Benitatxell, known locally as Cala de los Tiestos.

It is believed the man died snorkelling and his death was a tragic accident

However, Guardia Civil officers will continue their routine investigations to rule out foul play.
