Grayton Beach, a sandy beach so white that it looks like snow, has been chosen as the best in the whole country by a person who, from beaches, knows everything. This is Stephen Leatherman, a coastal scientist and professor at the Florida International University, who has spent 30 years making an annual ranking of all the beaches in the United States.

Grayton Beach can boast sugar white sand and emerald green waters. Urban development is limited, so large sand dunes still dominate the landscape, “says Leatherman.
