Spain's coast guard has found the body of a man from New Zealand who went missing last week at a beach in the northwestern province of Galicia.

A coast guard boat recovered the body of the man about one kilometre (half a mile) from the Traba en Lexe beach, the coast guard said in a statement on Wednesday.

"Police, with the help of family members of the missing man, identified the body," it said.

The unidentified man, who was in his thirties, had not been seen since he went for a swim at the beach on August 22.
