Home Digital Extra post Florida beaches win Dr. Beach accolades


Four Florida beaches are among the 10 best in America for 2015 as ranked by coastal expert and environmental scientist Dr. Stephen Leatherman, known as Dr. Beach.

Florida beaches in the new Top 10 are #2 Barefoot Beach Park on Florida’s southwest coast, #3 St. George Island State Park in northwest Florida, #6 Bill Baggs Cape Florida State Park in Biscayne Bay, and #9 Delnor-Wiggins Pass State Park in Collier County. Leatherman, professor and director of the Laboratory for Coastal Research at Florida International University, praised Floridas beaches for their white, “squeaky clean” sand, gentle surf and clean, emerald-coloured waters.

VISIT FLORIDA’s COO Paul Phipps said Florida’s continuously high rankings lend scientific validation to visitor word-of-mouth that led a record 98.9 million U.S. and international visitors to the Sunshine State in 2014.
