Hawaii beaches among world’s best in new ranking

Kauai’s Polihale Beach is the world’s best beach for seclusion, Wailea Beach on Maui is the No. 1 beach for activities; Black Sand Beach at Waianapanapa State Park on Maui is the best for dramatic landscapes; and Hapuna Beach on Hawaii island is ranked at No. 3 among the world’s best beaches for families, the readers’ survey found.

Those in search of an off-the-grid stretch of sand will want to note the beaches that T+L readers deemed best for seclusion, starting with Polihale Beach, Kauai. Its wild, seven-mile shoreline is accessible only by old farm roads. But voters also gave a nod to One Foot Island Beach in the South Pacific’s Cook Islands. Perhaps this beach is so alluring because the visit is inherently ephemeral: flip-flop-wearing travelers are not able to spend the night. Instead, drumbeats at dusk signal the last boat to nearby Aitutaki island, where a small airport welcomes four flights a day from Raratonga.
