You may want to get a spray to have handy, just in case you need it. They are more prevelent in the Summer. But usually, the closer you are to the beach, the less of a problem they are due to the seabreeze. So you may notice them more on the mainland, or nearer the bay, but they should not be much of a problem on the beach.
