Huge shark spotted close to shore at popular Perth beach



A large shark has been spotted too close for comfort at a popular Perth beach, sparking the waterway to be closed for the second time in less than a week.

Swimmers were forced out of the water at Mullaloo Beach in Perth's northern suburbs after a 2.5-metre tiger shark was spotted close to shore at midday.

The ocean predator was swimming through the shallows drawing quite a crowd on a hot summer's day as families enjoyed the school holidays.

Tiger shark spotted at Perth beach

Lifesavers were forced to close the beach and ordered swimmers from the water.

It's in the exact same spot where a shark of a similar size caused a scare just last Thursday.

The beach reopened two hours later, and the shark was nowhere to be seen.
