Marconi Beach was one of five beaches on Cape Cod and Plymouth to also be closed temporarily on Monday because of shark sightings.
Back in 2017, a shark bit a surfer’s paddleboard on Marconi Beach.
Earlier on Tuesday, Ballston Beach closed to swimming from 7:30 a.m. to 8:30 a.m. because of great white shark activity.
