Hawaii’s Hapuna Beach State Park Was Just Named The Best Beach In America And We Couldn’t Agree More

I'm an east coast girl living in a west coast world. I grew up in New England before moving to SoCal for several years. I then lived in NYC or a year before moving to AZ in 2009. I worked in the entertainment industry for many years of my adult life and I love photography, writing, and traveling around the U.S. as well as to far-flung locations around the world! Travel is my life and writing about it is a dream.
Every year since 1991, beach expert Dr. Stephen Leatherman, otherwise known as “Dr. Beach,” posts his highly anticipated list of the country’s best beaches. Using a set of 50 criteria including cleanliness, size of waves, currents, condition of sand, amenities, and views, he makes his decision. This year (2021), the number one spot goes to a beach located on Hawaii’s Big Island: Hāpuna Beach State Park, and we couldn’t agree more.
Do you agree with Dr. Beach’s opinion that Hāpuna Beach State Park on the Big Island is the best beach in the country? Or can you think of another Hawaiian beach that should have snagged the top spot? We would love to hear your thoughts!
