5 Cape Cod Beaches Closed to Swimming Due to Shark Sightings


Swimmers were ordered out of the water at several Cape Cod beaches on Thursday morning due to shark sightings.

According to the Sharktivity app, Nauset Public Beach in Orleans, Lecount Hollow Beach and Maguire Landing Beach in Wellfleet, Coast Guard Beach in Truro and Eastham and Head of the Meadow Beach in Truro were closed to swimming for an hour after a research boat spotted sharks swimming nearby.

The Nauset Beach alert was issued shortly after 10 a.m., and the others shortly after 11 a.m.

The beaches were expected to remain closed to swimming for one hour assuming no additional sightings.
