Earlier this month, Oahu’s Kailua Beach Park was chosen as the top beach in the U.S. by “Dr. Beach,” the alias for coastal scientist and professor Stephen Leatherman, who has been compiling the list since 1991.

Dr. Beach uses 50 different criteria to assess beaches, including everything from water cleanliness and safety to sand softness and seaweed volume.

What are your favorite beaches? What criteria do you use to evaluate them?
