Visitors to the beach first contacted the emergency services at around 3:30pm on Sunday after they had seen two bodies floating in the water.
Attempts were made to resuscitate the couple, but it was too late. It is still not clear how the couple drowned.
‘La Vanguardia’ reports that the victims are a 71 year-old woman and a 75 year-old man. However, the Foreign Ministry has as yet refused to give any further details on the victims’ identities.
