THREE Costa Blanca beaches were reopened for swimmers this Monday(October 4) after a police diver spotted a shark on Saturday.
A Policia Nacional officer was carrying out a routine dive in the waters off Teulada-Moraira when a blue shark swum over him.
The red flag was raised to ban bathing at the Portet, l’Ampolla, and Platgetes beaches as a precaution.
A search for the shark was launched without success.
Swimming was allowed again on the three beaches from this morning.
A blue shark cleared Benidorm’s Poniente beach in early August and washed up dead two days later at El Campello near Alicante.
