playa palms beach

While walking the beach this last vacation I noticed that the beach area in front of playa palms where the boats are.. the water was really dirty , so much so that I noticed very few people swimming there . Is there a reason that this one particular area is not cleaned. My thinking is that the owners of the condos would be responsible for it.

No. Not responsible. It's federal property. Any clean up is done at the discretion of the properties (for their guests).

Dirty as in what - sea grass? If so, I have stayed there and they did have someone raking it up. Sometimes it pretty bad, other times it's not bad at all.

beach in front of Playa Palms

I think this must have been something very temporary, maybe sea-weed as some suggested. we clean our beach every day actually, and the city is very good at keeping the last part in front of the ocean very tidy as well.

I have been in Playa for many years and since they added all that sand last year it must be the best beach I have seen in this town.

greetings from a hot Playa
