Portuguese Man O’War Along the South Coast

Thanks to AJ for sending me these photos taken by Cais do Carvão close to the lido in Funchal.

The Portuguese Man O’War can give a nasty sting and their tentacles can grow to 50 meters.

If you are swimming in the ocean along the south coast give the surface of the ocean a quick scan, they are fairly easy to spot on the surface, with a blue pink colour.
