Folly Beach, Fort Lauderdale Beach and Palm Beach are among the hottest spots to swim with the Florida sun.
There’s no denying that the sun is a great way to get a good tan.
But the weather is not always that kind, according to the CNN Guide to the Sunshine State.
“The heat can be pretty brutal,” said Ashley Kellett, a former Olympian who now lives in Orlando.
“When it gets really hot, you don’t really want to be swimming in that water.”
The guide warns that temperatures in Florida can be up to 40 degrees Fahrenheit and some spots can hit as high as 140 degrees.
In other words, if you want to get into the water, you better plan ahead.
Here are the top 10 hottest spots for swimming.
Folly beach: The beach at Folly is a popular destination in Fort Lauderdale.
But some people will argue that the water isn’t as clean as the rest of Fort Lauderdale’s beaches.
The water is a little too salty, said Kayla Ziegler, a spokeswoman for the Fort Lauderdale Recreation Authority.
Fort Lauderdale beach: In Fort Lauderdale, you can swim in the ocean, on the beach, in the lake or even on the water.

The hot water can reach 150 degrees, said Nicole M. Lavin, a senior lifeguard with the Palm Beach County Parks and Recreation Department.
Fort Walton Beach: If you are in the area and the temperature is in the 80s, this is a good place to go, said Mark L. Schumacher, a lifeguard for the National Parks Service in Fort Walton.
Fort Pierce Beach: The temperature can be as high up to 100 degrees, but you should stay inside because the pool is cold, said Schumachers.
St Augustine Beach: There are pools in Fort Pierce that can get hot as high a 110 degrees, which is what many people do, according the National Weather Service.
The pools are located on a residential street in Fort Martin, which isn’t a popular spot for swimming, according Schumbs.
St Johns County: The weather can get quite hot, even in winter, but be careful, the pool can get up to 120 degrees, Schumbers said.
Fort Wayne Beach: You can swim the beach on the south side, but if you don
