The water at Nauset Beach in Orleans was closed for an hour Friday after a great white shark sighting, Brandon Burke, assistant beach director at Nauset Beach, said.

The shark was spotted 100 yards off shore at 10:45 a.m., according to the Atlantic White Shark Conservancy’s Sharktivity app.

The beach remained open, but swimming was closed until 11:45 a.m., Burke said.

The beach was also closed for an hour after a shark sighting Sunday afternoon, the Globe reported.

Nearby, Truro beaches were also closed temporarily over the past two days due to shark sightings.
