Best Beaches in the USA in 2015

Waimanalo Bay Beach Park, Hawaii

Preparing for 2015 summer vacations? Find out what beaches in the USA are best this year.

Last week  Professor Stephen Leatherman of Florida International University  known as Dr. Beach revealed which ten beaches in the USA are best. He makes this list each year and now is the time for 2015 edition as the summer is coming. This year the title of top beach in the USA received Waimanalo Bay Beach Park located on Oahu, Hawaii.

Dr. Beach estimates beaches by 50 criteria such as water and sand quality, amenities,  environmental management. Waimanalo Bay Beach Park received highest marks in all categories and it is ahead of Barefoot Beach in Florida. In past several years Leatherman introduced some new criteria for beaches estimation. The talk is about no-smoking rules. and safety.

Leatherman explained that when the talk is about litter on beaches, most frequently are seen there cigarette butts and plastic, therefore he gave higher marks to those beaches that are clean. On the beaches where smoking was permitted it was normal to gather ten cigarette butts in a square meter. In Oahu smoking is banned on beaches and that makes their beaches clean. This helped the Oahu beach to win this year the highest place in top 10 best US beaches. Another factor which plays an important role is beach location. Waimanalo is located in a quiet town near an Air Force base, far away from the noisy city of Waikiki.

Leatherman says that the beach is very beautiful and few people know about this place. That is one more reason why it is so clean and perfect. The beach is the longest in Oahu, the water is blue and not very deep here. It is a safe place. Though there are a lot of amazing beaches in Hawaii, but not every beach can be called safe.

It should be said that Waimanalo Bay is a perfect place for fising and there is a lot of fish here. However, the waters here are calm and this place is not for surfing.

In 2015 list of best US beaches was included one more Hawaii beach. The talk is about  Hamoa Beach on Maui . Generally speaking, Hawaii beaches receive highest marks from Leatherman for years.

2015 Top 10 Beaches in the USA:
1. Waimanalo Bay Beach Park, Hawaii;
2. Barefoot Beach in Bonita Springs, Florida;
3. St. George Island State Park on the Florida Panhandle;
4. Hamoa Beach on Maui, Hawaii;
5. Cape Hatteras, Outer Banks of North Carolina;
6. Cape Florida State Park in Key Biscayne, Florida;
7. Coast Guard Beach on Cape Cod, Massachusetts;
8. Beachwalker Park on Kiawah Island, South Carlolina;

Top Non-Filter Cigarettes

Astra Non-FilterWhen you are looking for a quality smoke, you normally ask your friends for an advice or recall well-known cigarette brands in your mind which inspire confidence. Marketing departments know that if a brand name or logo appears frequently in front of man’s eyes, this brand fixes firmly in his mind. Then he starts to trust this brand because he is familiar with it.

When the talk is about no-filter cigarettes, people can hardly recall a cigarette brand which has such products in its range. This is because non-filters are not promoted like filters. Why? Because filter cigarettes are for mass consumption and non-filters are for a narrow circle of consumers, because not all smokers like the harsh taste of tobacco which non-filters give. Filters in cigarettes help to make smoking milder.

That is the reason why non-filters are usually used only by experienced smokers. They say that cigarettes without filters allow them to feel true taste of tobacco.  Moreover, they say that in production of non-filter cigarettes is used tobacco of higher quality than in filter cigarettes!

Non-filters are strongest among all kinds of cigarettes and it is common feature which joins them. Incredible, but seems to be true as experienced smokers are true professionsls in tobacco. In this post we will look through one famous cigarettes brand and some brands less known to large public.
