Bathers on Valdelagrana beach, in Puerto de Santa María, Cádiz, were surprised this Saturday by a small ‘mini-tsunami’ that forced them to run away, in some cases, before the advance of the water. It was a sudden rise in the tide that has dragged hammocks, garbage cans and wooden walkways, as well as towels, umbrellas and other items that bathers had brought. In addition, the sea water has flooded a rental business of hammocks and the lifeguard post on the beach.

In addition, the rise in water occurred just after eating, when the beach bar was full, causing many bathers to jump into the water to retrieve their belongings.
