The Seawall Questions & Answers

Paris, Texas

Can someone tell me how the seaweed is looking this year? Our vacation in Galveston a couple of years ago was pretty much ruined due to huge amounts of stinky seaweed on the beach in front of our condo. I don't want to spend the money going to Galveston if the seaweed is bad again!

It is fine this year. That year is was bad almost everywhere in the Caribbean.

You can google the seaweed that year and it was so bad! I had a friend leave PR because of it!

I run the seawall 3 times a week and this year I barely saw any. Enjoy!

I was there with my wife just a week ago. We walked the beach, and at night too. It was fine.

I have been going to the beach every weekend for the last two months and there has been no sea weed just yet.

I'm in Galveston now and there is no seaweed on the beach and doesn't appear to be any on the water. Don't know when you plan on going but it is clear now.

I hardly noticed any when we were there. Enjoy your vacation!

I was there in May and there was seaweed on the beach but just normal amounts you might expect. If there have been significant storms in the past few weeks I would expect more this year. It didn't bother us at all and we played in the beach several days while we were there.

We were there a month ago and while the water is a bit brownish the sands were clean and there were people out surfing.

My boyfriend and I were just there in the middle of May and we had no problem with it whatsoever. And we spent basically all our time there for a week.
