Hawaii Claims Two Spots in Best Beach List
It should come as no surprise that Hawaii has two beaches in Dr. Beach’s annual Top Ten Beaches of 2011. What is surprising though is that neither Hawaii beach (Kahanamoku Beach in Waikiki or Waimanalo Bay Beach Park) was named the number one beach. That honor went to Siesta Beach in Sarasota, Florida. Dr. Beach, aka Dr. Stephen P. Leatherman, has been compiling his list of the top ten best beaches for the last 21 years. Despite not taking the top spot in 2011, Hawaii has taken the top prize in 12 out of the 21 listings. In fact, in 2010 the number one beach was Hanalei Bay in Kauai. Set in one of the most serene settings in the world, Hanalei Bay is a favorite of many Hawaii residents.Blessed with some of the most gorgeous beaches in the world, the Islands of Hawaii have a perfect beach for everyone.
