Dr. Beach's Top Ten Beaches in the US in 2007

Dr. Stephen Leatherman, aka Dr. Beach, has just announced his "Top Ten Beaches in the US" for 2007. In a repeat of the 2006 results, Florida beaches occupy the #2 position and the #10 position. This year, Lighthouse Point Park, Daytona Beach has appeared in the #9 spot, knocking a Hawaiian Beach out of that spot. So in 2007, Florida has 3 beaches on the list.

Caladesi Island has maintained its hold on the number 2 spot. Last year's number 10 pick was Bonita Beach, Florida, which has been bumped this year in favor of Siesta Key Beach, Florida.

Here is the Top 10 Beaches in the US List for 2007:

1. Ocracoke Lifeguarded Beach, Outer Banks, North Carolina
2. Caladesi Island State Park, Dunedin/Clearwater, Florida
3. Coopers Beach, Southampton, New York
4. Hanalei Bay, Kauai, Hawaii
5. Coast Guard Beach, Cape Cod, Massachusetts
6. Hamoa Beach, Maui, Hawaii
7. Main Beach, East Hampton, New York
8. Coronado Beach, San Diego, California
9. Lighthouse Point Park, Daytona Beach, Florida
10. Siesta Beach, Sarasota, Florida

For those of us who live near the beach, our home town beach is usually our favorite.

I travel and visit all the beaches in Florida. Asking me to name the "best" beach is asking the impossible. Look for my upcoming list of the top 500 beaches in Florida for all time!
