BEACHGOERS worried about the threat of jellyfish will soon be able to avoid them with a simple tap of the finger.
A new mobile phone app will allow holidaymakers to pinpoint the exact location of the stinging invertebrates along the Costa del Sol.
The device is part of a wider prevention campaign being launched by tourism chiefs and scientists aimed at improving research into the behaviour of these marine animals.
The presence of jellyfish along the coast has increased in recent years and it is hoped the application, to be launched next summer, will help reduce the threat to tourism.
