A SHARK sighting has caused a temporary beach closure in Mandurah just hours after it was reopened following a shark attack earlier this week.
The City of Mandurah put out a statement saying the decision was made to close Pyramids Beach again following the sighting this morning.
Visibility at the beach is poor so an ‘act, watch and monitor’ approach had been put into place.
The decision to close the beach was made with the City’s head ranger, Surf Life Saving WA and the Department of Fisheries.

The closure follows an attack at the beach on Wednesday in which 18-year-old surfer Eli Zawadski was bitten on the foot.
