During the summer days you can observe in Malaga a phenomenon that is always repeated at the same time.

A small “tsunami” suddenly invades the beaches of Malaga and catches by surprise those bathers unaware of this phenomenon who are lying at first beach line just a few meters from the sea.

What is this strange phenomenon that has drenched more than one and has occasionally taken mobile devices and other prized possessions?

From July 1 it will occur every Friday at 9 pm and every Sunday at 7.30 pm, especially on the beaches of Sacaba, but also at La Misericordia, Huelin and La Malagueta.
