Trip Advisor’s voters remained in Lahaina with the next-highest-ranked Hawaii beach, selecting Napili Beach at No. 10.

Ka‘anapali and Napili are consistently among Trip Advisor’s favorite Hawaii beaches, and for good reason: the Lahaina resort area features beautiful views and a wide variety of available activities, including surfing, snorkeling and whale watching.

Oahu’s Lanikai Beach, in Kailua, is No. 12 on Trip Advisor’s 2020 list, and Wailea Beach, in Wailea, Maui, is 14th.

The Big Island has the last two of Hawaii’s ranked beaches, with Hapuna Beach State Recreation Area, in Puako, listed 16th and Manini‘owali Beach (Kua Bay), in Kailua-Kona, 23rd.

Florida has six of the top 10 and eight ranked beaches in total, with Siesta Beach in Siesta Key at No. 1 overall.

Hawaii and Florida account for 14 of the 25 beaches on the list. South Carolina has three beaches on the list and California two.
