Coast beaches closed after shark sightings

TWO SUNSHINE Coast beaches have been closed this morning by lifeguards after shark sightings.

Coolum and Coolum North beaches were shut down this morning as a precaution after a sighting.

Lifeguards have only just reopened the beach a short time ago.

It comes after Kings Beach was closed to swimmers yesterday after a 4-5ft shark was spotted by members of the public and lifeguards.
