Three times as many migrants have arrived in Spain so far this year compared to the same period in 2016, the International Organization for Migration (IOM) says.
It means the number of sea arrivals in Spain – at 8,385 – could overtake Greece, which has had 11,713 people.
The shift may be because migrants are finding the Spanish route safer.
Earlier this week, footage showed migrants arriving by dinghy on a beach in Cádiz to the surprise of beachgoers.
The IOM say 11,849 people have arrived in Spain so far this year, compared with 13,246 in all of last year.
