Every year since 1991, Florida university professor Stephen Leatherman has ranked the best beaches in the U.S. and this year’s list has been unveiled! Nearly one-third are in the good doctor’s home state, two in Hawaii and only one in the very long state of California.

By the way, Stephen Leatherman is a geoscientist, coastal ecologist and first director of the International Hurricane Research Center at Florida International University for more than a decade – he know of what he speaks!

  1. Siesta Beach – Siesta Key, Florida
  2. Kapalua Bay Beach – Maui, Hawaii
  3. Ocracoke Beach – Outer Banks, North Carolina
  4. Grayton Beach State Park – Grayton Beach, Florida
  5. Coopers Beach – Southampton, New York
