Where to comfortably swim at the beach in the winter?

I haven't gotten my salt water beach fix in a while. We are fairly planned out until the end of February. So, I'm thinking late Feb/early March.

Now that we are headed firmly into cool weather, can anyone tell me where I could go (within the continental US) in order to be able to enjoy some sand and salt swimming time? Is it just down in south Florida (Miami-ish)? Anywhere in Texas?

We did the Keys last year at Christmas and it was nice. But there definitely was a cool-ish breeze. We did swim from our private boat dock, though!

Didn't have much in the way of beaches...

The Caribbean? seriously though I would think possibly somewhere on the gulf or California maybe but I know for sure NC is too cold.

Caribbean is a little difficult in the current rig! I'm hopeful that my daughter will be able to surf Christmas Day in San Diego. After that we head for Florida. I think we are going to head for Miami and then the Everglades.

No, but you could take the rig and "park" it somewhere for a week and take off on a cruise. We are doing a week out of NOLA the first week of February.

Shush your mouth! This would be my wife's kind of idea! Which isn't terrible- just can't afford it right now.
