Hawaii is known around the world for its beautiful beaches. Flight Network, a Canadian-owned online travel company, recognized this by naming 15 of the state’s beaches as part of its ‘North America’s Top 50 Beaches’ list for 2018.
The list was compiled by Flight network based on feedback from over 1200 journalists, editors, bloggers and travel agencies.
The Flight Network team used a thorough vetting process which includes tallying votes for the beaches. They also used additional criteria like untouched beauty, remoteness, atmosphere, accessibility, water and sand quality, annual days of sunshine, and average annual temperature.
The list includes three beaches on Maui, four on Oahu, another four beaches on Kauai, three on the big island of Hawaii, and one beach on Lanai.
The number one spot for 2018 went to Tulum Beach, in Quintana Roo, Mexico.
