Hamoa Among Ten Best Beaches
Steven Leatherman aka Dr. Beach recently released his list of the ten best beaches in America. Once again, a Maui beach made the list. Hamoa Beach in Hana came in 7th on this year’s list. Dr. Beach rates his list based on 50 criteria including water and sand quality, facilities and environmental management.
Maui is world renowned for its beaches. That may be lead some to question why there is only one Maui beach on this year’s list. The reason is pretty simple. Beaches ranked number one on the annual list are ineligible for future inclusion on Dr. Beach’s top ten. Maui Beaches have topped the list four times since Leatherman started rating beaches in 1991. Kapalua Beach, Fleming Beach Park, Ka’anapali Beach and Wailea Beach all have garnered top honors. Hulopoe Beach on Lanai was also a top ranked beach giving Maui County five best beach winners. This is yet another reason that Maui is No Ka Oi.
