Seaweed can be an issue along our beaches during certain times of the year. Though June is historically the month of greatest seaweed deposits, there is no way to predict when it will wash ashore in larger quantities or how long it will last.
During periods of heavy seaweed deposits, the South Walton TDC is often asked why we don’t remove seaweed from our beaches. South Walton is proud to be an eco-friendly destination and we are committed to preserving and protecting our area’s natural beauty and the safety of beach goers. A good source of information on how Seaweed in important to the Gulf Coast can be found on Living Earth Website.
