A second sighting caused Cala Major beach, just west of Palma, to be closed yesterday morning.
The shark - approximately eight feet long - sent swimmers racing for shore after it appeared in shallow waters on Cala Major beach, between Magaluf and Palma.
The following day, it was spotted again, this time with a serious head wound, reportedly caused by a harpoon.
The shark was caught by lifeguards and aquarium workers and pulled ashore as beachgoers watched in amazement.
Extraordinary photos taken by stunned onlookers earlier on today showed the shark swimming towards a group of people including children on lilos. It is thought that the injury had disoriented the fish, causing it to swim much closer to shore than normal for a blue shark.

Lifeguards and aquarium staff then scouted the area to find the shark after it was spotted on Illetes beach, which is between Magaluf and the island's capital Palma.
Blue sharks are relatively common in the Mediterranean, but are not usually thought to be risky for bathers although one is thought to be responsible for biting a bather on the hand in 2016 in the sea off the eastern Spanish town of Elche.
The attack happened on the famous beach at Playa d'en Bossa, home to megaclubs like Hï and Ushuaïa.
Lifeguards on jet skis helped kids on dinghies and from an inflatable water park near where the shark was spotted to safety as colleagues ran along the shoreline blowing on whistles and ordering swimmers out of the water.
The beach was briefly closed following the encounter; however it reopened a few hours later.
