The West Coast has beautiful beaches,fishing snorkeling and fun.Those micro organisms are out West, but; have never interfered with any fun we have had.We spend most of our leisure boat time out West,the beaches are beautiful.
I am not sure if they are seasonal or not.They are so small and most wouldn't notice until you told them.
If they happen to be there; we go swimming anyway,it is not what most are thinking.To me its like a sand-fly in comparison.After everyone is in the water or when we reach home,I tell them about the micro organism.
It does not compare to the hurt of Pica Pica and jelly fish that ARE out on popular East Side.
I always thought "sea lice" or "roaches" were a way to manipulate a buyer to buy higher priced Real Estate on the East.
The Lagoon is much different ALL TOGETHER ,the water is somewhat stagnant and there are all types of wild life including many species of micro-organisms. The West is undervalued beachfront,provided you know the lay of the land.
I have been going out West for many years and have never had a problem or anyone in our group.We have photo albums of us and many others swimming,spearfishing,and shell finding expeditions.
I asked a full-time owner that lives out there years ago if he knew of a season and he pretty much said he has gone 6 months and not seen one and then he may see one the next day.He said it never bothered him or a guest of his.
Now if you tell a hypochondriac that prior,you may be in for a interesting day.
When the rich and famous come here and stay at Cayo Espanto (private island)Tiger Woods,DiCaprio, and countless others use that same Beach.Must have been so bad he bought the island adjacent to where we are talking about.
Before you knock an experience you should try it.Jeff glad you made it out alive,lol
That has been undervalued property for years.
