- Cape Hatteras, Outer Banks, North Carolina

- Hamoa Beach, Maui, Hawaii
To hang out at Hamoa Beach is to appreciate an unordinary land encounter — this bow molded spit of sand is within the leftovers of an old volcanic hole. Indeed, a portion of the sand on the shoreline is really separated magma. (The rest originates from wave-battered coral.)

There is no lifeguard on obligation, and the streams can be risky, notwithstanding. Simply getting to Hamoa requires a touch of get up and go: The path in is the scandalous “Street to Hana,” which is misleadingly thin and skirts various 1,000-foot drop-offs.

Hawaii’s on a part. For the second year in succession, the island state can assert the best shoreline in America, as per Leatherman’s criteria.

The view here is stunning, with turquoise waters meeting white coral sand, all against a background of rough green coastline.
