An adult dolphin washed ashore this morning at Kelly’s Blue Flag Beach. It had signs of being attacked by sharks.
In sending photos to a shark expert it was decided to close Kelly’s Beach for swimming for the day. Blue Flag lifeguards are on duty.
No swimming should take place at following beaches: East, West, halfway, Kelly’s, Shelly and Flame Lily beaches as a safety precaution.
Update from Fanie Fouche:
The Port Alfred beaches are now open for swimming after being closed yesterday as a safety precaution. West Beach remains permanently closed for swimming. Please note the only beach with lifeguards on duty is that of Kellys Blue Flag Beach (830 – 1730) up until end of Blue Flag season (1 May 2018). Swimming at any of our beaches are done at own risk. Be safe and enjoy “Our Sunshine Coast”.
