Beachgoers watch migrant boat land on Spanish shore

Spanish beach

Footage on social media showed the boat landing and the migrants jumping out and running up the beach.

It comes as Spain announced it was closing its border on Ceuta after a policeman broke his thigh bone when more than 200 migrants stormed into Spain earlier this week. Overall numbers have fallen by nearly 60 per cent from the same period the previous year.

The arrivals to Greece decreased to 12,191 this year, when compared to 161,232 last year, the IOM said.

Spain witnessed a threefold increase in refugees entering the country using the sea-route this year, when compared to the same period last year, the United Nations migration agency said Friday.

Italy still far surpasses both Spain and Greece in the number of migrants arriving on its shores in 2017.

Experts say it's hard to pinpoint why the water route to Spain via Morocco has become a preferred option for some migrants.

Numerous group were collected in vehicles after landing, according to the paper.

Ceuta and Melilla are today the main entry points to Spain for illegal migrants, 90% of whom are men, mainly from sub-Sahara.

"People are talking about going to Spain". Overall, the numbers of migrants crossing the Mediterranean have dropped dramatically this year, mostly because of the rapid decline in the number arriving in places like Greece and Cyprus.

The number of refugees reaching the coast of Spanish southern Andalusia region by boat has dramatically risen in recent months.

But many are desperate to get to mainland Spain, believing that the process in Ceuta is slow or fearing that they will be returned to neighbouring Morocco, and try to hide in lorries boarding ferries.

All of the migrants - about 700 - were repelled by the Moroccan and Spanish authorities.

According to the IOM's latest figures, until August 6, close to 8,200 migrants had arrived in Spain so far this year.

The good weather over the past few weeks seems to have led to a sudden increase in the number of migrants arriving in Spain.
