Coopers Beach New York, May 31 (THAINDIAN NEWS) Dr. Beach, whose real name is Dr. Stephen Leatherman has listed the Coppers Beach in Southampton, NY as the best beach in the United States. Dr. Beach said that he is not at all worried about the BP oil spill, which threatens to pollute most of the beaches in the South Coast.

Dr. Beach has been compiling this list for the past twenty years. This is the first time a beach in New York has made it to the top of the prestigious list. The criteria of the rankings are based on water quality of the beach, temperature of the water, cleanliness of the beach, weather conditions at the beach, sand quality, safety of the beach and all the facilities available at the beach. The best beach in the year, does not make it to the list in next years’ edition, so that the other beaches can also get a fair chance.

Dr. Beach who is director of Florida International University’s Laboratory for Coastal Research said that beaches that are designated as best beaches experience as much as 20 percent rise in tourism.

Some other beaches that made it to the top ten were Coronado Beach in California, Cape Hatteras in North Carolina, Kahanomoku Beach in Waikiki, Honolulu and Hamoa Beach in Maui, Hawaii.
