There were a hundred or so of these at the El Playazo beach, many washed up on the sand. There were more to be seen in the waves just offshore, and some trapped in tide pools like this one.

Description

Pardon the excessive auto-contrast. It was hard to get a photo of this kind, since they were still alive and in murky shallow water. They were flat and very very blue from side view. Fringe of short tentacles around the outside edge.
