The Ministry of the Environment has advised the public to “take extreme care while in or near the ocean when the Portuguese Man of War [PMOW] is present.”

“There are currently reports of Portuguese Man of War on Horseshoe Bay on the south shore. The Portuguese Man of War can be identified by a bluish, gas filled float on top of the water,” the Ministry said.

“Its long tentacles drift below the surface of the water and often they are difficult to see. These tentacles cause very painful stings. Stay away and do not touch the PMOW even if on shore as the tentacles can still be very venomous.”
