A man was lying lifeless on a secluded section of the beach when paramedics arrived, spokesman Robert Mckenzie said.
He had been pulled out of the water.
Paramedics found that he had already died.
“It is thought that the man, who was in diving gear, had been free diving or snorkelling but the exact circumstances leading up to man’s death are being investigated by the police.”
The man was thought to be in his fifties.
Police would investigate the circumstances of his death.
