Cape Hatteras is ranked as one of America's Top Ten Beaches!

Dr. Beach has just released his list of America’s Best Beaches and Cape Hatteras has made the cut for the Top Ten, for another year in a row! This year Cape Hatteras comes in at #10! (In previous years, the rankings have been as follows: #5 in 2011, #4 in 2010, #7 in 2009, and #8 in 2008.)
Dr. Stephen P. Leatherman (Dr. Beach), Director and Professor of the Laboratory for Coastal Research at Florida International University, travels up and down the coastline each year in search of the absolute best beaches in America. He evaluates each site using 50 criteria, which range from beach condition to water temperature, to sand softness and color.
Being a strong contender in America’s Best Beaches, does not surprise those of us who live and breathe Cape Hatteras! Whether you live here, visit here, or long to visit our shores, you know from the moment you arrive, that you’ve reached paradise! From our clean, uncrowded beaches to the best surf on the East Coast, to world-class fishing and adventure! Cape Hatteras has it all while still managing to hold on to the small island charm that everyone cherishes and loves.
Dr. Beach describes Cape Hatteras as:
“Bulging far offshore of the mainland coast as a barrier island, Cape Hatteras was the first National Seashore. Providing some of the best board surfing along the East Coast, as well as the most famous lighthouse in the United States, Cape Hatteras attracts beachgoers to its historic fishing villages. Nature lovers adore the excellent beachcombing and superb fishing. Hurricane Irene in 2011 cut a few inlets through Hatteras Island so travel down to the Cape will be slowed.”
