Carolinas beaches make annual Top 10 list

May 27, 2011 9:14:00 AM - thestate.com
Two Carolinas beaches made a list of top 10 beaches in America, as decided in an annual survey by Florida International University professor Steven Leatherman, who is also known by the friendly nickname "Dr. Beach."

Beachwalker Park, Kiawah Island, and Cape Hatteras, in North Carolina's Outer Banks, were No. 8 and 5, respectively in the list.

As for the top of the list, after years as a head-turning bridesmaid in the best-beach rankings, Sarasota's Siesta Beach is finally the bride.

The wide slice of brilliant white sand and warm, emerald water on Florida's southwest Gulf coast was named the best beach in the United States Friday.

Siesta Beach, 40 acres of almost pure quartz crystal sand on the Siesta Key barrier island, was runner-up in Leatherman's rankings the past two years and was third in 2008.
