At least 2 hammerhead sharks were spotted today on the south coast of Madeira along by Docas do Cavacas and Complexo Balnear do Poças do Gomes.
The sharks were seen swimming close to the coast for almost an hour.
Its not unusual to have hammerhead sharks in the region,. The large amount of jellyfish that have been plaguing our beaches on and off since June has brought the sharks closer to shore as they feed on them.
The sharks were about a meter and half long, and don’t cause a threat to bathers.
