Holidaymakers, beach goers and all those who have swum in the warm waters of the Mediterraean Sea on the Costa del Sol last summer might have suffered a jellyfish sting due to the plague of jellyfish. However this summer we will be able to avoid them with a simple tap of the finger. A new jellyfish iPhone app will allow holidaymakers to detect the exact location of the stinging invertebrates along the Costa del Sol.  This way, they will be able to choose a beach which isn’t affected by these transparent, umbrella-shaped creatures.

The development of this application is part of a large project which aims to stop the proliferation of jellyfish on the Málaga coastline as there has been a significant increase in their numbers the past summer.

We will let you know as soon as the application is available for download. So this summer we will enjoy the beach and swimming in the sea with a little technology help.
