Authorities across the country have warned that they will be enforcing stiff penalties for bathers who ignore red warning flags on the countries beaches, as the number of people drowning off of the Spanish coast has risen to 305 this year already.
Xàbia has announced they will continue their enforcement of €750 fine, San Bartolomé de Tirajana in Gran Canaria has now announced fines of up to €1500, whilst some beaches in Asturias carry a €3000 fine for those who ignore the warning flags.
According to AETSAS, there were around 6,000 incidents in the water requiring rescue in Spain last year.
