This summer in Almeria beachgoers are being treated to the sights of jellyfish at the beach, but this latest sighting was incredible. In recent weeks, jellyfish have been spotted along the coastlines of Aguadulce, Roquetas de Mar and Almeria city. However large or small, they are an impressive sight and a wonder of nature.

The giant jellyfish otherwise known as the ‘Rhizostoma luteum’ can grow to 40 kilos and a staggering 60 centimetres in diameter. They also have tentacles that can reach a staggering two metres long. The giant jellyfish are not dangerous though and their sting is said to be milder than the sting of a common jellyfish.
