Where's the best beach to go swim?

Not that just because I live in Kailua, but I love Kailua. And...

Dr. Beach (http://www.petrix.com/beaches/best.html) has ranked Kailua Beach Park as the number beach in the world for 1998.


Dr. Stephen P. Leatherman, the nation's foremost beach expert and a professor at Florida International University of Miami, has released his 1998 ranking of America's Best Beaches.

Known as "Dr. Beach", Dr. Leatherman devises his annual listing based on 50 criteria, falling under three main categories: physical factors such as sand softness, wave size and current strength; biological factors such as water color and quality, and presence of pests; and human-use factors and impacts such as lifeguard protection, visual obstructions and amenities.

I would have to say Hapuna beach on the Big Island of Hawai'i is the best. It's beautiful and very peaceful.

I lived in Hawaii for over 3 years. I think the best beach if you have kids is KO'Olina Beach Resort. There are 4 lagoons, all that are very beautiful. The best part is that the surf is blocked by large rocks that make the water nice and calm for the kids to swim in. Kailua is also pretty awesome!!!!!! Aloha on Line.
