Locals and tourists were horrified as millions of bugs covered miles of coastline after they swarmed a beach.
One commentator, who identifies himself as khnagar, said: “It looks like Black Maize Beetle (Heteronychus Arator), which are known for having mass flights in the summer/autumn where they mate and all that.
“Or it’s some similar type of beetle. They only live for a few days at that stage after crawling out of the ground.
“So a lot of beetles flew, got swept out to sea by the winds, and then came back to the beach, most of them dead or dying. Most likely scenario I can come up with.”
