The figure marks a significant increase to past year, when 13,246 migrants arrived in Spain in all of 2016, according to the International Organization for Migration (IOM).

The latest figures from the International Organization for Migration showed 8,385 migrants had arrived by sea to Spain this year, more than double that of the same period for last year. Despite Spain's increase, migration across Europe is down overall when juxtaposed with last year's numbers.

Many of those opting for the longer route are from west African countries including Senegal, Gambia, Guinea and Ivory Coast.

But to get to Italy, they have to cross the Sahara desert and crucially Libya, wracked by chaos as rival militias and administrations seek to control the oil-rich country.

"Whereas in Spain, the strategy is smaller craft hoping to come in undetected, and undoubtedly some do".

"The use of these playthings is troubling. one large wave and they can flip over and leave people in danger", the Frontex spokesman told the Thomson Reuters Foundation by phone.

The migrants either make it to the Spanish coast or are intercepted in the Mediterranean Sea by Spain's marine rescue service and then taken ashore.

The good weather over the past few weeks seems to have led to a sudden increase in the number of migrants arriving in Spain. Islamists are reported to be plotting a strike against tourist beaches similar to the one in Sousse, Tunisia, in 2015, which left 38 people - including 30 Britons - dead. "And others are fine and recover quickly", he said.

The number of sea arrivals, however, doesn't take into account those coming into Ceuta and Melilla, two Spanish territories in northern Morocco, by land.

The Interior Ministry's office in Ceuta said the migrants also tried to scale the six-meter-tall (20-foot) barbed-wire fences around Ceuta after the early Thursday crossing attempt at the Tarajal post failed, but were again repelled by Moroccan and Spanish police.
