Maui’s Ka’anapali Beach has been rated as #10 world’s best stretch of shoreline for 2023, according to the travel site’s annual list of the world’s best beaches, which was released on Tuesday. As the only American beach to appear in the top 10, it is ranked as #1 in the United States.


The beaches list is part of Tripadvisor’s Travelers’ Choice Awards, which are determined based on millions of reviews submitted by travelers over the course of 2022.

Tripadvisor looks at the quality and quantity of ratings in determining the rankings.

Located on the island’s western shore, Ka’anapali boasts three miles of white sand and a famed cliff diving ritual at Puʻu Kekaʻa, or Black Rock. Each evening at sunset, torches along the cliff are lit by a diver who then plunges off the rock in a reenactment of a feat by Maui’s King Kahekili.

While Ka’anapali Beach was the only beach to break into the top 10 on the global list, two more US beaches came hot on its heels at Nos. 11 and 12: Siesta Beach on Siesta Key, Florida, and Jekyll Island, Georgia’s Driftwood Beach. Magens Bay on St. Thomas in the US Virgin Islands also cracked the top 25 list at No. 24.
