You deserve a safe, healthy and environmentally-sound beach.  The National Healthy Beaches Campaign (NHBC), lists beaches that demonstrate a standing commitment to health, safety and environmental awareness.  The NHBC List is a unique and impressive guide to our nation's finest beaches, setting the gold standard for beach enthusiasts and conservationists alike.

 Look for this designation when you visit a beach:

Founded by Dr. Stephen P. Leatherman, the National Healthy Beaches Campaign (NHBC) is a demonstrated commitment to promote awareness of health, safety and environmental issues facing all beaches.  We continually review and evaluate beach destination worldwide and certify destinations that are shown to be consistent with our core principles. (About Us)
The NHBC "Certified Healthy Beach" designation is reserved only for those beaches that have been carefully reviewed and considered by our evaluators in accordance with important health, safety and environmental criteria. For each listed beach, we have evaluated the water quality, sand quality, cleanliness, general safety, environmental management and services offered. (View List)
We welcome the support of beachgoers worldwide as we promote the importance of preserving and maintaining our beaches and coastlines (a precious natural resource).  Please subscribe for email updates and event notifications.  CVB, tourism office or beach destination representatives, please review our registration and listing criteria here (See Criteria)
