Be prepared to cough, have your eyes burn, and even see dead fish float by. We were SO disappointed. This is a yearly favorite trip, but no one warned us of the health hazards here now.

Seaside Beach exceeded my expectations for a clean sandy swimming beach. During our stay there were no bugs, 90 degree weather and 80 degree water. Folks were friendly, lots of restaurants, food trucks (permanent airstream style) and bars.

We didn’t swim at this beach since we were just in Seaside for a day, but we did stop by to check it out. It wasn’t crowded at all about was very clean. There are outdoor showers and restrooms to change clothes, too.

The 30-A area off the Gulf of Mexico is exquisite. White sand and crystal blue water. The summers are busy and can get crowded, but this is a must see beach!

This beach is amazing, the sand is like powder and it is never crowded. Food and drink is just a short walk away.

We’ve been visiting for over 15 years. We keep coming back because of the seclusion and the beaches. It’s sad to see how much the overpopulation has killed the charm. But like most hidden beach gems, tourism eventually ruins it. I never thought I’d see...More
