A couple was arrested for having sex on a Florida beach in front of dozens of witnesses.

Elissa Alvarez, 20, and Jose Caballero, 39, seemed oblivious to the stares of horrified families as they romped at Cortez Beach in Bradenton on Sunday, reported Mail Online.

After cavorting in the sand for more than 25 minutes, the pair went for a swim, reported Mirror. The couple then took a snooze on the beach.

Beach-goers thought the worst was over. They were wrong.

The pair woke up and cuddled for a while before going at it again.

By then Ms Emily Hall, whose four-year-old daughter had witnessed the whole episode, had had enough and called the cops.

A disgusted grandmother also whipped out her mobile phone to film the romp.

A local Fox affiliate reported her as saying: "I've lived here since 1978 and I go to the beaches and I've never seen anything like this."

Police arrested the couple for felony lewd and lascivious exhibition, reported NY Daily News. They were released on a bond of US$7,500 (S$9,300) each.
