What? Blue sand? Nope! These are thousands of blue jellyfish covering several beaches of Barcelona and along the Catalan coast.
The jellyfish started appearing last Saturday, coloring the sand and coastal water in blue in Barcelona, Badalona, Sitges, Vendrell, Montgat and Tarragona. This type of jellyfish isn’t dangerous for humans, so people can continue bathing… But it’s quite a bit disgusting!

A few weeks ago, another major stranding occurred along the beaches of the Costa Brava after a week of strong waves and abundant rainfall in Catalonia.
Meanwhile a giant sunfish – 3 meters by 2.8 meters – was discovered dead on a beach near Pareora, south of Timaru last Friday when they found the massive.
