Travel pros say 6 of the world’s best beaches are in the U.S.


A list of “The World’s 50 Best Beaches” from FlightNetwork, the largest Canada-based online travel agency, was compiled from its survey last fall of more than 600 travel journalists, editors, bloggers and agencies.

The top vote getters in U.S. and territories:

♦Trunk Bay, U.S.V.I., No. 10

♦Flamenco Beach, Puerto Rico, No. 19

♦Honokalani Beach, Hawaii, No. 28

♦Tunnels Beach, Hawaii, No. 32

♦Lanikai Beach, Hawaii, No. 41

♦Cannon Beach, Oregon, No. 50

Katherine Rodeghier of the Chicago Tribune was one of those travel pros who voted and one of her favorites was the top-rated on U.S. soil, No. 10: Trunk Bay in Virgin Islands National Park on St. John in the U.S. Virgin Islands.

Rodeghier states, “Not only does Trunk Bay have a lovely curve of sand, but it also boasts a 225-yard-long underwater trail for snorkeling, one of my favorite pastimes.”Trunk Bay scored 7 out of 10 for remoteness. It also received 10 of 10 for untouched beauty, and for sand and water quality. That’s three of the five criteria used in the FlightNetwork rankings. Those plus the other two — annual days of sunshine and average annual temperature (140 days and 80.6 degrees at Trunk Bay) — resulted in a list of beaches on six continents. Sorry, Antarctica.
