Jellyfish alert in Lanzarote
Over the weekend it was recommended not to go swimming off the coast of La Graciosa near Lanzarote. On Monday this recommendation was extended to the beach at Caleta de La Famara. The reason was that numerous Portuguese caravel jellyfish had been sighted. They are also known by other names. Its sting is dangerous and very painful. Especially at risk are children, elderly people and allergy sufferers.

13.03.2018 - Anyone who sees jellyfish in unmarked places should report them to the lifeguards as soon as possible. Those who have been stung should also contact the lifeguards directly.  The affected area should be treated with physiological serum or, alternatively, seawater.  Never use fresh water, vinegar, ammonia or urine.  Do not rub or scratch, but cool the skin with ice cubes instead.  Antiseptic treatment is recommended.  Increased caution is particularly important for allergy sufferers.
