According to local media, a wave as high as 1.5 meters hit the islands of Mallorca and Menorca during the early morning hours of Monday, July 16.

The wave hit numerous cities along the coasts of both islands, including the port city of Ciutadella on the west coast of Menorca, flooding beaches, roads, bars and terraces.

Beach chairs, boats and parasols were swept away on both islands as well as historic sailing boat used by the Majorca Island Council which had to be rescued by sailors and brought back to port as it drifted out to sea.

There are no reports of injuries as the beaches were still relatively empty when the event took place.
