Sun and fun is the order of the day along our 35 miles of sparkling shores. Although our Gulf waters are typically clear, and our surf is most often calm, on occasion, beach conditions may change.
If red tide is present, we'll post updates on this page so you know which beach is best for you to visit. Below, you'll also find information on Florida's beach flag warning system (which alerts beachgoers to safe vs. unsafe swimming conditions), seasonal air and water temperatures, as well as additional resources to help you plan your beach vacation.
As you enjoy America's Best Beaches, please remember to be considerate of other beachgoers, wear sunscreen, stay hydrated, and have a fabulous beach day!
