According to data compiled by the International Organization for Migration, between the start of the year and July 16, 7,389 migrants had arrived in Spain on what is known as the "Western Mediterranean Route".
On the same day, 12 migrants arrived in waters off the Spanish territory of Ceuta in northern Morocco on board jet-skis, with one man drowning before he could be rescued, according to authorities.
According to El Pais, which quoted sources from European Union border agency Frontex, smugglers want on average 1,000 euros per passenger against last year's 500.
IOM spokesman Joel Millman said he believes that migrants taking the long route towards Italy via the Sahara and Libya - many of whom are from West Africa - are now choosing to take the "safer" coastal route through Morocco.
'If so, that's a big change'. Spain, with 8,385 migrants - largely male Muslims - from #West Africa coming ashore, is now giving serious competition to Greece, where another 11,713 migrants have reached Western Europe through its borders so far this year compared to 13,246 in all of last year.

BEACHGOERS got a surprise on Wednesday when a rubber dinghy full of migrants arrived on a Cadiz beach.
Inigo Vila, in charge of emergencies for the Red Cross in Spain, said the organisation had reinforced the number of people working on the coast in southern Andalusia and in Ceuta to help migrants when they make landfall.
The teenagers will be taken to migrant reception centres, where they can apply for asylum in Spain.
The Interior Ministry's office in Ceuta said the migrants also tried to scale the six-meter-tall (20-foot) barbed-wire fences around Ceuta after the early Thursday crossing attempt at the Tarajal post failed, but were again repelled by Moroccan and Spanish police.
