More Cape Cod Beaches Closed Due to Sharks

CapeCodOnline: All beaches on the ocean side of Chatham, Massachusetts, were indefinitely closed to swimming yesterday due to increased shark activity along the shore. The Chatham harbormaster’s office ordered the beaches closed following more shark sightings over the weekend.

Specifically, North Beach, North Beach Island and South Beach are now closed to swimmers, said a spokesman from the office.

This follows last week’s banning of swimming on some beaches on the eastern shoreline after great white sharks were spotted near Monomoy Island and the North Beach inlets.
