A beach in Greece has turned into an arachnophobe’s worst nightmare, as hoards of spiders weaved thousands of cobwebs all along the shoreline.

The spider's webs are currently covering an area stretching almost 1000 feet.

Warm weather and a large number of mosquitos are thought to be to blame for the booming population of spiders, which have swarmed the town of Aitoliko to mate.

The creepy-crawlies are commonly known as stretch spiders due to their elongated bodies.
