Beach closed from Peasholm Dog Beach to Floreat Drain due to shark sighting

UPDATE: The beach has now been reopened.

Lifesavers have closed parts of a beach in Perth’s northern suburbs due to a shark sighting on Sunday afternoon.

City Beach has been closed from CMB2 (near Peasholm Dog Beach) to CMB19 (near the Floreat Drain Carpark) with the shark reportedly 30m offshore.

The Surf Life Saving Westpac Helicopter reported the 2.5m shark sighting at 12.43pm. The species is unknown.

It comes just a week after swimmers were forced out of the water at three of Perth’s most popular beaches.

Cottesloe, North Cottesloe and Swanbourne beach were closed last Saturday after a tiger shark was spotted in the area about 8.20am.
