The risks of a swimmer succumbing to a Jaws scenario is quite low, with less than one hundred recorded attacks by sharks each year. In fact you are more likely to be killed by a mountain lion than a great white, statistic wise. However, some beaches have higher shark bite rates than others. If you don’t like sharks you might want to avoid these beaches.

1. Pearly Beach, South Africa
