The Sunshine State is home to some of the most amazing beaches in the country. Now we’re scratching our heads at Travel + Leisure’s newest list of the 25 Best Beaches in the United States. Only ONE Florida beach made the list!?! Some beaches on the list make sense but others have us second-guessing Travel + Leisure. The had several criteria which defined a “perfect beach.” Those criteria were: “the sand, the waves (or lack thereof), the level of seclusion, the public transportation and accessible parking, the boardwalk, the activities, and even the amount of shaded trees.”

Still only one Florida beach in the Top 25? Hmmm.

Here they are so you can decide if Travel + Leisure hit the mark.
