San Diego lifeguards on watch for shark; La Jolla beach reopened

Beachgoers in La Jolla after beach was closed.

A two-mile stretch of beach in La Jolla was reopened Thursday morning after being closed Wednesday when surfers and boogie-boarders spotted the dorsal fin of a great white shark, San Diego lifeguards announced.

Lifeguards patrolled the area and found no evidence of the shark. Still, an advisory warning remains for those entering the water within one mile south and north of the Children's Pool.

The La Jolla closing came just days after a two-mile stretch of Mission Beach was closed for two days because of shark sightings.

Also Thursday, a lifeguards determined that a citizen's report of a shark off Sunset Cliffs was not credible. The beach remains open.
