No. Honestly, I couldn't even smell it sitting on the beach most of the time I was there first week in September. Sometimes the wind would shift and I could smell something, but most of the time, not bad at all. I guess it just depends on the wind direction.

I did not notice the smell. As far as going in the water, forget it. Gross gross.

Just got home to Austin about 2 hours ago.

Was by Coco Beach Club yesterday. Less seaweed than other places. Tolerable smell.
