Newcomb Hollow Beach in Wellfleet was closed twice Wednesday for shark sightings, officials said.
The Cape Cod beach was first closed to swimming for an hour after a sighting at 11 a.m., said Suzanne Thomas, Wellfleet beach administrator. The water was closed again for an hour at 1:30 p.m., she said.
This is the second day in a row that Newcomb Hollow Beach has been closed because of shark sightings. Newcomb Hollow Beach was closed Tuesday afternoon after a State Police helicopter observed a great white shark near swimmers.
