And The #1 Beach In America Is…

If you’re in search for the best beach in America, you’re going to want to head to Hawaii.

According to the Associated Press, Professor Stephen Leatherman AKA Dr. Beach, has named Hawaii’s Waimanalo Bay Beach the best in the United States.

Leatherman, who is a professor at Florida International University, compiles a list every year after looking at criteria such as water quality, sand and amenities. It’s important to note that Leatherman only ranks public beaches and prefers non-smoking ones. He is also a big fan of safety. “There are a lot of beaches in Hawaii that are absolutely gorgeous but not very safe,” he said.
