    Red Tide Advisory

    Red tide is a naturally occurring phenomenon of a higher-than-normal concentration of a microscopic alga. While some of Florida’s Gulf Coast beaches are currently experiencing the effects of red tide, not all have been impacted. We encourage visitors to check https://visitbeaches.org for the most up-to-date information on water and beach conditions.
