          I am curious about the beach conditions. Are they cleaning up the dead fish due to red tide?

          Response from cindydiver | Reviewed this property |
          I suspect they cleaned up the beach, but since fish were coming ashore daily it was hard to keep up. Since a more recent traveler said they didn't experience any issues, hopefully the episode is over.
