Waimanalo Bay Beach Park Oahu, Hawaii


If you’ve ever been to Hawaii then you know that practically all their beaches are incredible with their clear blue waters and soft white sand, but here is Dr. Beach’s* #1 pick for the 2015 beach season! Located on the Island of Oahu which is the home of Hawaii’s capital Honolulu and also the Pearl Harbor Memorial.

Barefoot Beach Bonita Springs, Florida

Rachelle and Matthew Ferraiuolo of Swartz Creek, Mich., play in the sand on Barefoot Beach on Wednesday. Rachelle said they had tried Bonita Beach a few days before but couldn't stand the crowd. Stephen Leatherman, the beach guru at Florida International University's Laboratory for Coastal Research, has listed Barefoot Beach as the 10th best beach in the country. Jeremy Lyverse/Staff

Ahhhh the Sunshine State! It’s no surprise that a Florida beach made it as Dr. Beach’s* #2 pick! What makes this beach special is the fact that it still remains unspoiled! Enjoy kayaking, nature trails, and all the wonderful animals that reside on and near the beach.

Coastguard Beach Cape Cod, Massachusetts


November 9th, 1620 a little ship called the Mayflower made landfall in the New World on this very beach! Enjoy some history along with the amazing sites that come with this beach including: marshes, lighthouses, whale and seal sightings and much more! P.S. #7 on Dr. Beach’s* list!
