It appears there isn't a comprehensive list of beaches, by state, for the entire United States so below is our initial attempt to identify and provide some basic information on US ocean beaches.  Over time we will expand to cover lakes, ponds and rivers.


New England Mid Atlantic South Atlantic Gulf Coast Pacific
Maine New York Maryland Florida Washington
New Hampshire New Jersey Virginia Alabama Oregon
Massachusetts Delaware North Carolina Mississippi California
Rhode Island   South Carolina Louisiana  
Connecticut   Georgia Texas  


States we will need to identify beaches, whether a lake, pond or river, in going forward:


Alaska Arizona Arkansas Colorado Hawaii
Idaho Illinois Indiana Iowa Kansas
Kentucky Michigan Minnesota Missouri Montana
Nebraska Nevada New Mexico North Dakota Ohio
Oklahoma Pennsylvania South Dakota Tennessee Utah
Vermont Washington, D.C. West Virginia Wisconsin Wyoming


 Based on our initial efforts, we realize this is a sizable and ongoing task that will take time so we would more than welcome any suggestions people care to share.  If you are so inclined, please feel free to email us the name of the beach, and a supporting web address if one exists, at

Thanks in advance for your assistance.
