Beaches

Hello we are in Lauderdale-by-the-Sea for a wedding. The beach at out hotel is full of seaweed and the water isn’t the pretty tropical blue that I have seen in the past down here. Does anyone know of a beach we can go to for the day so we can see that nice blue water? Can’t be too far away, but would love to see some turquoise seas

Well. Right now just about every beach has seaweed on it. The pretty blue water is down on Hollywood Beach and down at Miami and South Beaches.

Mind you, the color of the water depends on the weather. Yesterday the water at Fort Lauderdale Beach was pretty and blue and clear. But one some days it isn't. If the water is churned up, it'll be pretty blue, but cloudy. The seaweed really friggin sucks right now, even for us locals.

Climate change is expanding the Sargasso Sea and contributing to large amounts of seaweed washing up on beaches in the Caribbean and south Florida. It varies from day to day and place to place. Sometimes there is very little and sometimes a lot, even on the same beach. You could follow several webcams of Florida beaches at http://www.earthcam.com Lauderdale-by-the-Sea is one of them. The farther north you go, the less there will be.

We are currently at Fontainebleau which is considered to be mid-Beach, and while there is almost no seaweed in the water, the water by the shore is colored dirty brown. Even if you walk past it, it doesn’t get clear blue, just less brown. Good news - no jellyfish. And you can swim beyond the brown water at low tide. We walked down the boardwalk towards South Beach, and the beach appears to look more or less the same: no apparent seaweed in the water but the water is brownish along the shore.
