HOLIDAYMAKERS ready to jet to the Bakearics have been issued a warning after multiple beachgoers were left with painful bites after swimming.
The warning comes after several swimmers in Majorcan beaches reported leaving the water with bite marks.
A local named Montse Terradas told the newspaper he has come out of the water with bites in more than one occasion.
He said: “We noticed that some fish was brushing against us, but then it bit me.
“They were bloody wounds, the same thing happened to my sister and we also had to be treated by the lifeguard.
He added that he was told that there had been another fifteen cases on the beach that day.
Another swimmer who was also bitten added: “They must feel that their habitat is being invaded, the lifeguard told us.”
Recalling the moment, the swimmer described the fish as they “could measure up to 30 centimeters, but at first glance they appear and are harmless.”
In some cases, beachgoers were left with a small bleeding wound after being bitten by fish.
Earlier this week, holidaymakers were warned of a mystery substance that has forced four top beaches to close.
Red flags have been raised to prohibit swimming along the coast of the holiday hotspot resort of El Puig, near Valencia after a strange white matter washed up.
And last week tourists in Ibiza were being turned away from a favourite island beach – following a disgusting discovery.
Visitors have been told to avoid Ibiza’s Playa Es Pinet after the cove’s water was found to contain faecal matter.
Earlier this month tourists were warned over a “ticking timebomb” Spanish beach which could be turned into a “dead zone” by a dangerous shipwreck.
The situation at the popular hotspot Port de Pollensa in Mallorca has been described as “delicate” after fuel leakage from a ship that sank in the bay was spotted.
