Second Beach in Port St. Johns is a delightful getaway destination on South Africa's majestic Transkei coast. Unfortunately, in recent years Second Beach has gained a reputation as the most dangerous beach in South Africa. This is because there have been eight shark attacks in five years against surfers and swimmers.

The species claimed responsibility for the horrible incident at Second Beach is the Zambezi shark which is known as the bull shark in other parts of the world. Bull sharks can grow to 2.5 meters (8 feet) and have a reputation for aggressive behavior. They are known to bite almost anything they find in the water, such as the tiger shark.
