Southwest Fl. Water temperatures still in low 70s. That is about the best, beside pools. If you are used to cold water up north, this will still feel nice.

For me, I don't go in the water below 80 degrees.

There is a nice state park with a wonderful beach in the keys. Bahia Honda has 2 beaches. One on the Atlantic side and one on the Gulf side.

Mid FL in Atlantic water is in high 60's. You will need at least south fl.
The gulf side of fl is warmer. Perhaps fi. Mayers or further.
Good luck

Low 70s we can do. I feel like that was the ballpark temps in Key West. It was good for my daughter and me, but my wife didn't even try. My son swam a little, but was out before too long.

I'm not sure that I was to go the whole way down to the keys. Especially because we can't camp at Bahia (too big).

Sounds like Miami or thereabouts should work.

Keys or South West Florida. Gulf is warmer. Keys not much beach, but lots of places to get to the water. Nothing like the Jersey shore.

Forget about all those Florida "snowbirds" and come to South Padre Island in Texas where you are a "Winter Texan". The beaches are great and the people are absolutely fantastic in Texas. Remember the saying - in Texas, they welcome you with open arms; in Florida they welcome you with open palms

Where to comfortably swim at the beach in the winter?

We go to Naples area each year. This year we will be in the new RV. Several great resorts that open up once the snowbirds leave in March. Nice beaches and warmish water and plenty of activities to keep kids entertained.

In Venice the snowbirds don't even think about leaving until May.
