Other sandy hotspots on the list – which is overwhelmingly dominated by beaches in Hawaii, Florida and California -- include:

  • Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve (Honolulu, Hawaii)

  • Assateague Beach (Chincoteague Island, Va.)
  • Wailea Beach (Wailea, Hawaii)
  • Lanikai Beach (Kailua, Hawaii)
  • Fort De Soto Park (Tierra Verde, Fla.)
  • Gulf Islands National Seashore (Pensacola, Fla.)
  • Siesta Key Public Beach (Sarasota, Fla.)

The No. 1 beach is Ka’anapali Beach in Lahaina, Hawaii.

This particular list was compiled based entirely on feedback from TripAdvisor travelers. A list of the top beaches around the world was also released. That list includes beaches in Italy, Turks and Caicos, Australia and Brazil, among others.
