Summer is in full swing, August in Miami is hot and humid, afternoon showers are not uncommon and actually welcomed to bring a bit of relief from the blistering sun.

This is a great time to enjoy the beaches, waterparks and any water-related activities. If you're heading out to the beach remember our turtles are nesting! Please pay special attention for any signs indicating turtle activity in the area.

If you have been putting off that scuba certification, grab your mask and fins and get down here, our beautiful reefs are calling!

To escape the muggy weather outside and indulge in some well-deserved TLC, Miami Spa Month continues until the end of the month, with simple to the most cutting edge Spa treatments around, all without breaking the bank and Miami Spice brings the best of the culinary best in Miami, with some amazing offers at the city's top eateries.

About our sea turtles and nesting on South Florida beaches

Sea turtle nests at Hollywood Beach

Sea turtle nesting season is here, if you are heading out to the beaches, please pay attention to nesting areas, they will be ropped off and clearly marked, avoid getting near these areas or trampling on the eggs!

Sea turtles nest mostly after dark, females emerge from the water in search for a spot to lay their eggs. They need their peace and quiet, give them a wide berth.

It is against the law to disturb turtles, nesting or otherwise, their eggs and their hatchlings!

You can learn more about sea turtles and how they nest.
