The body of a man was discovered floating just off a beach within the municipality of Castell de Ferro yesterday afternoon.
According to the Guardia Civil, it was around 18.30h that a person out strolling along Playa de Cambriles saw the body floating some metres out to sea and who then contacted the police.
The man had been dead several days and had been swept by the tides and wind to this beach, known locally as the Playa de las Monjas in the Cambriles area.
The body was transferred to the Instituto de Medicina Legal in Granada where an autopsy will be carried out.
