Wow, you are right Dr. Beach (http://www.drbeach.org/) really does have it right. What a great idea, the top 10 beaches. So instead of voting for my own, let’s see what he says. First of all, I see that he only rates US beaches. I have to say, IMHO, that its a big world and the US is great, but there are a few other places (can you say Bora Bora) that might have something on us. A google search for Best beaches (http://google.com/search?q=”best%20beaches”) reveals quite a few lists. I kind of agree with the Travel Channel (“http://travel.discovery.com/convergence/beachweek/world/world.html” on the best world beaches and Bugbog (http://www.bugbog.com/beaches/best_beaches.html)

Here is my list of just the places I’ve visited:

1. Bora Bora. Wow, what an amazing place. Not to mention an amazing island
2. Great Barrier Reef. OK, this isn’t just one beach, but 2,000 miles of it. Heron Island is amazing. No other snorkeling can ever really compare
3. Santorini. Not just the black beach there, but the whole crater is amazing
4. Kailua-Lanikai. Still my vote for the top 10

Here is the list from Dr. Beach with some comment for ones I’ve been to:

1. Fort DeSoto Park – North Beach, St Petersburg, Florida – National Winner. I havent’ been there.
2. Ocracoke Island, Outer Banks, North Carolina
3. Hanalei Bay, Kauai, Hawaii. A little rough for me.
4. Caladesi Island State Park, Clearwater, Florida
5. Fleming Beach, Maui, Hawaii. A nice place
6. Coast Guard Beach, Cape Cod, Massachusetts
7. Coronado Beach, San Diego, California. Wouldn’t have won my best beach. Actually, I think farther up at Delmar is way nicer or maybe in La Jolla
8. Cape Florida State Park, Key Biscayne, Florida
9. Main Beach, East Hampton, New York
10. Hamoa Beach, Maui, Hawaii
