Dr Beach on Fleming, Hawaii

Stephen Leatherman, known as Dr Beach, has named Fleming Beach, Hawaii, America’s best beach. Fleming Beach on Maui’s western shoreline won the award for natural beauty, clean water, and good facilities. It features views of (of course) the Pacific Ocean and Molokai Island.

The runner up was Caladesi Island State Park in Florida, while Ocracoke Island in North Carolina was third.

In case you missed the Waimea article in March, Hawaii has been doing pretty well on the award front.

    I learned from locals, and agree with them that Keawekapu (pronounced kavekapu) Beach on the Kehei/Walea line is the best beach on Maui. I suppose it depends on what you want. While this is the best beach for suning and swimming generally. I will not say which are my truely favorite ones as tradition is to be introduced as one “qualifies”.

    I live across the street from this beach. Its Keawakapu (pronounced kee ava ka poo), not kavekapu. Thanks
