“Dr. Beach” Names Cape Hatteras in America’s 10 Best Beaches

beach at HatterasVirginia didn’t make the cut but the beach at Cape Hatteras in neighboring North Carolina came in at number five this year on  "Dr. Beach," Top Ten Beach list.

Noted on drbeach.org: "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."

Cape Hatteras National Seashore beach is down one from last year’s No. 4 spot.  However, the beach, which has been on the Top Ten list for several years, is still up from No. 7 in 2009 and No. 8 in 2007.

The Buxton Beach is located in the shadow of the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse on the largely undeveloped Cape Hatteras National Seashore.  Being undeveloped and natural is another thing that Leatherman likes.
Being named to Dr. Beach’s list is always a cause for celebration for the beaches he chooses, since a lot of publicity comes with the announcement of his new list. 
This year’s No. 1 beach is Siesta Beach in Sarasota, Fla.

Once a beach is named No. 1, as Ocracoke was, it is “retired” from competition. 
There’s still hope for the Cape Hatteras beach at Buxton Beach to get to the No. 1 spot.  Ocracoke was on the Top Ten list for several years before it was crowned the best beach in America.
