The Best Beach In America Is Right Here In Hawaii And It’s Beyond Dreamy

The Hawaiian Islands are home to 750 miles of stunning coastline — putting the Aloha State behind Alaska, Florida, and California when it comes to coastline length. And while among that coastline you will find countless rock formations and sea cliffs, the beaches are what truly matters. With so many stunning stretches of sand throughout Hawaii, how can you possibly choose the best ones? Luckily, Dr. Beach has made the decision for us and recognized this phenomenal Hawaii beach as No. 1 in the entire country, beating out beaches in Florida, California, North Carolina, New York, and Massachusetts. While Hapuna Beach State Park was awarded the No. 8 spot, it’s Maui’s Kapalua Bay Beach that secured the title of America’s best beach (an honor Conde Nast Traveler agrees with). Let’s take a look at what makes this stretch of sand so special, shall we?

Kapalua Beach is located near Lahaina on Maui’s western coast. Have you ever visited this slice of paradise? What’s your favorite Hawaii beach? Sound off in the comments below!
