Nearly 60 people have been stung by stingrays at Coronado Beach over the last four days, Coronado Lifeguards confirmed Saturday.
Lifeguards are attributing the increase to warmer than average water and air temperatures and larger crowds at the beach.
The surf has also been small and calm, which allows stingrays to get to shallower water.
Lifeguards suggest shuffling and stamping your feet to scare stingrays away.
San Diegans at the beach Sunday said they were being cautious, but the news didn't stop them from going to the beach.
"We kind of waited for the big waves to come in and then we...kind of ride with the wave," said Patrick Vue, a beachgoer.
He says he heard someone stepped on a stingray and was stung, but that's not keeping him from going in the water. He was at the beach all day with his family.
"You just kind of keep an eye out for the kids and try not to go too deep out in the water," said Paul Vue, a La Mesa resident. "'Cause they're a little smaller, so kind of stay where there's a lot of people and hopefully everyone scares away the stingrays."
Lifeguards have said about five to 15 people are getting stung a day.
No serious injuries have been reported.
If you do get stung, contact your nearest lifeguard. They will most likely have you soak the affected area in warm water.
