We've been going to Madeira beach for 6 or 7 years now, usually last week of July - 1st week of August. Last year the red tide was pretty bad, lots of dead fish floating in the water and on the beach. Stench was bad, couldn't swim for several days.
Is the red tide still around? Any guesses if it will be bac again this summer? We love it there so much but the red tide did make it pretty gross.
