Swimming is off limits Friday to three Martin County beaches due to the discovery of blue-green algae.

The county said Jensen Beach, Stuart Beach and Bathtub Beach were closed to swimming as of 2:30 p.m. because of visible blue-green algae in the water.

Double red-flags will be displayed as a result.

Other Martin County beaches with lifeguards are open.
