Could this be Pancratium maritimum? I am not at all sure how to tell the difference, but it is a coastal habitat.

Yes you are quite right to query it but I mistakenly put up an observation of what I thought was Pancratium canariense last year only to realise that it was Hymenocallis. I think the tepals (ie the spidery bits are much longer and more elaborate than Pancratium.
I did manage to get an image of Pancratium canariense in La Palma, but I've never put it on iSpot as it was rather poor, I'll see if I can find it and put it up for comparison.

This is what I put up last year
