WATCH: British tourist shocked as sunbathing interrupted by boats of migrants landing on beach on Spain’s Costa del Sol



THIS is the moment a group of migrants can be seen landing on a Costa del Sol beach. 

The one-minute clip shows a blue boat wash up on the beach in Manilva before around 20 African migrants run onto the sand.

SHOCKED: Bethany has ‘never seen anything like it’

The video was shared by Brit Bethany Leith, 20, who claims to have taken the clip while sunbathing on Aldea beach yesterday.

The accounting assistant told the Olive Press today: ” I was really shocked to be honest.




“It happened on Monday too, with the exact same boat. As soon as I saw it coming I knew what was happening!

“Quite scary to be honest as, although they may be coming here for a better life, no one knows their intentions, good or bad.”

She said she saw the migrants run into a car that was waiting for them.

“There was a car waiting at the top and they all crammed in!” she alleged on Facebook.

The tourist can be heard saying ‘Oh my God’ throughout the clip.

The holidaymaker, from Stoke-on-Trent, claimed on Facebook that it is not the first boat she has seen as she uploaded another one-minute clip of a different vessel arriving.


It comes more than a week after footage of a boat washing up on a packed Manilva beach went viral.

Spain has become the fastest growing route for migrants seeking to enter Europe from Sub-Saharan Africa.

Bethany added: “It hasn’t put me off coming as I come here often, as me and my mum come to visit a close friend and they live here.

“I think it’s more scary for those who live here as you just don’t know their intentions and there could be one rogue!”
