This is the moment a group of dolphins are seen swimming at the Spanish holiday island of Majorca in a sea usually packed with tourists, but now empty because of the COVID-19 restrictions.
The video was recorded next to the Port Adriano, in the eastern Spanish region of the Balearic Islands and was shared on social media.
According to reports, the dolphins were seen swimming next to a boat between the island of El Toro and Port Adriano.
The sea is also particularly clear because of a lack of pollution, as human activity in the region has been reduced to a minimum, allowing the dolphins to be seen clearly.
The video was shared with the message saying: “Dolphins playing around by a boat between Port Adriano and the island of El Toro, wonderful things in our sea.”
The video struck a chord with netizens who were happy to see the creatures taking advantage of the peace and calm in the area caused by the COVID-19 tourism decline.
One netizen identified as ‘quealpedo’ posted: “This is sad. Tomorrow they will be suffering because of human life. Everybody will go to the beach and they will have to flee. There should be quarantine 45 days per year, every year.”
Port Adriano is an important touristic area on the island of Majorca where restaurants and shops are a major attraction for tourists.
The shops and restaurants were closed due to the coronavirus lockdown but are now slowly starting to reopen although to lower numbers in order to keep social distancing
