THIS is the hilarious moment beachgoers jostle to get the best "socially-distanced" plot on a popular Spanish beach after queueing from 6am.
The desperate dash was filmed in Torrevieja in Alicante with similar scenes reported across the country as the tourist season gets underway.
Beachgoers in Torrevieja reportedly wait in a queue outside the beach from 6am every day to grab a plot in the sand.
To stop Covid spreading a grid has been arranged in the sand that indicates where sunbathers can lie down.
Many are willing to sprint to a plot with their beach chair and cool box in hand, outmuscling anyone who gets in their way.
As soon as a lifeguard gives the signal, the hordes of beachgoers run to the sand and battle for the prime spots.
Despite the rise in Covid cases, Spain is unlikely to be added to the amber plus list anytime soon, ministers have said.
