Best beach in America... in North Carolina?

'Doctor Beach' must have a pretty tough job. He ranks the nation's best beaches and is now out with his 2007 list. This year's best beach isn't in Florida or Hawaii. It's North Carolina's Ocracoke Island, part of the Cape Hatteras National Seashore.

Florida International University prof Stephen Leatherman, A-K-A Doctor Beach, says there are 14 miles of unspoiled beach there. He asks where else in the world can you find that? But it's not easy to get to. The only access to the island is by boat or private plane. Other beaches on this year's list are in Clearwater, Florida; Southampton, New York and Kauai, Hawaii. » Article here
