I vote for the nice breeze on the east coast in South Florida which keeps things cooler in the summertime.

But I agree with some of the other posts that the water on the west coast and the panhandle is very nice - that great aqua blue color.

I was just in Cocoa Beach a week ago and the water temperature was around 70F which is really warm compared to our water temperature up here near Vancouver (like 48F), also, when do you consider it to cold to swim???

70F is too cold to swim I don`t even bother unless the water is over 80.

From Pensacola News: "The ECUA’s new sewage treatment plant on Pensacola Beach will go online in the next two months. The $3-million upgrade will give the facility redundancy.
However, the ECUA beach facility will still dump its effluent into Santa Rosa Sound. While Pensacola Beach has been recovering from Hurricane Ivan, the plant has dumped an average of 882,000 gallons daily into the sound. However, it could dump as much as 2.4 million gallon per day once Pensacola Beach is built back.
The ECUA board should plan to pipe the effluent off Pensacola Beach and entirely discontinue dumping into the Santa Rosa Sound. A simple fix is to build a pipeline that connects with the South Santa Rosa Utility, which in turn could make it available for the irrigation of public and private lands on the Fairpoint Peninsula. No sewage facility should discharge its wastewater into any body of water. Our waterways are too valuable."
Lets change the word to read clear water... BTW this happened and is no hidden from no one. But this also happens in the Atlantic Ocean, almost positive that some municipal sludge from Florida got in the water (sooner or later)...

Environment—current issues: endangered marine species include the manatee, seals, sea lions, turtles, and whales; drift net fishing is hastening the decline of fish stocks and contributing to international disputes; municipal sludge pollution off eastern US, southern Brazil, and eastern Argentina; oil pollution in Caribbean Sea, Gulf of Mexico, Lake Maracaibo, Mediterranean Sea, and North Sea; industrial waste and municipal sewage pollution in Baltic Sea, North Sea, and Mediterranean Sea.

I find it strange that the water off the coast of South Carolina is warmer then southwest Florida.

Haha up here in Maine we swim in the ocean when it's 60! The warmest our water gets is about 65 for a couple weeks.

You do know that the pacific is very polluted too? rain forces that L.A. sewage into the oceans and even when it doesn't rain it is dirty and unsafe. Japan is very close to west coast - toxic nuclear
garbage washing ashore as far north as Canada and definitely on entire west coast. Are you really going to eat tuna or fish from the pacific?

As long as some FDA or school does s study you take their word for it? You gotta think more guy. It is polluted everywhere in industrialized countries. I think Minnesota's or Wisconsin's lakes may be cleaner.
