Leatherman list also features another New York Beach, Main Beach in East Hampton, Long Island, near Southampton. Main Beach No. 5 takes place in this year's survey. "When most people think of a holiday resort on the beach, going south," said Leatherman. "I think the kind of east end of Long Island is a well kept secret for most Americans."

Rounding out the top 10 are Playa Coronado, California (3), Cape Hatteras, North Carolina (4), Kahanamoku Beach in Waikiki, Honolulu (No. 6), Coast Guard Beach on Cape Cod, Massachusetts (7), Park Beachwalk Kiawah Island, South Carolina (8), and Hamoa Beach in Maui, Hawaii (9).

Coopers Beach has been a contender for first place in recent years, but this is the first time a New York beach has made the No. 1, Leatherman said. Consider factors such as water quality and temperature, cleaning, climate, sand, security and facilities in making your list.

Once a beach reaches the first position, withdrew from consideration in the coming years, he said. Leatherman said his appointment as number one country usually brings a beach as much as a 20 percent bump in tourism
