2. Second Beach, South Africa
With so many great white sharks patrolling this and other nearby surf beaches, it might be healthier to find a nice wave pool instead. Because of its history of attacks and frequent sightings of great whites, the beach is popular among shark-seeking tourists who come to tour the waters by boat. Tour operators dump veritable boatloads of bloody chum in order to entice the great whites to appear, as they are known to breach the water’s surface in this area. You definitely don’t want to surf or swim anywhere near these boats and their chum lines. You’ll welcome a protective cage between you and the toothy predators when venturing in these waters.
