‘Jaws’ alert in Palma


A TWO-METER long shark that was spotted in front of Club Nautico in Palma was ‘gently’ redirected to two miles away from shore. Although it attempted to bite its ‘helpers’, nobody was hurt. Sharks frequent the coasts of southern Spain and Morocco, although rarely come close to shore.

Sharks have been spotted on Mallorca’s shores before, the last time was in July 2000 when a 1.5 meter long shark came just two meters from the edge of s’Arenal beach, prompting a swimming ban for days.
