America's Top Ten Beaches

LANIKAI BEACH

Lanikai Beach is located in Lanikai, a neighborhood within Kailua, on the windward coast of Oahu, Hawaii. This small 0.5 mile beach has been consistently ranked among the best beaches in the world.

KA'ANAPALI BEACH

This is one of the best beaches on Maui. It fronts most of the Ka'anapali resorts. There is a concrete path that runs the entire length of the beach from Black Rock to the Hyatt. Black Rock is a popular area that divides the beach in half and is renowned for terrific snorkeling.

 

SIESTA KEY PUBLIC BEACH

Siesta's fine white sands, unlike any other beach sands, are composed of 99% pure quartz, which stays cool even on a hot sunny day.

HANALEI BEACH

Hanalei is a 2-mile long half-moon bay with white sand and majestic mountains - more than just beautiful, Hanalei is also an amazing ocean playground. Loved by visitors and residents alike, there is no place like Hanalei.

WAI'ANAPANAPA STATE PARK

Waiʻanapanapa means “glistening fresh water” in the Hawaiian language, referring to nearby fresh water streams and sparkling pools. The camp offers camping facilities, including a small lawn where campers may pitch a tent, and a public bathroom nearby.

WAILEA BEACH

With one of Maui’s best beaches at Keawakapu, three championship courses at Wailea Golf Club and a trio of top spas, visitors will have every opportunity to relax.

HUNTING ISLAND STATE PARK

Renowned for its natural beauty, the island remains one of the few remaining undeveloped Sea Islands in the Lowcountry. The park is known for its 19th century lighthouse which bears its name.

MANINI'OWALI BEACH

The swimming here is awesome when the ocean is calm, and there can be some decent snorkeling along the rocky outcroppings at either end of the beach.

SAINT PETE BEACH

St. Pete Beach is home of pristine sugary white sand beaches, clear gulf waters, warm sunshine, and plenty of hospitality. From family oriented beachfront resorts to quaint inns in the relaxed Pass A Grille area, St Pete Beach is a perfect vacation destination. Nearby is the famous Salvador Dali Museum, award winning Fort De Soto Park and the St. Petersburg Pier.

HANAUMA BAY NATURE PRESERVE

Hanauma is both a Nature Preserve and a Marine Life Conservation District (the first of several established in the State of Hawaiʻi). Reflecting changes in attitude, its name has changed over time from Hanauma Bay Beach Park to Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve.
