You were stung, most likely, by what we call string of pearls, a type of siphonophore but far less painful than a man of war sting.  The way you describe the incident is common for string of pearls, which are usually found in great number during certain times and virtually anyone in the water will be stung, man of wars are easy to see and easily avoidalbe.
