Thank you for your support of the Best of the Best Restored Beaches Contest!

For more than 30 years communities around the United States have been restoring their beaches. Although some areas in the country are relatively new to the process, others have a long history of successful replenishment projects. In many cases, the restoration process is so well established that beach enthusiasts are not even aware they are enjoying a restored beach!

The American Shore and Beach Preservation Association (ASBPA) honors the Best Restored Beaches in America annually to build awareness of the value of America's restored beaches.

“In some cases, the public needs to be educated about the history of long-standing restoration projects,” says Harry Simmons, mayor of Caswell Beach, N.C., and president of ASBPA. “In other cases, the memories of folks who were around when the beaches were in bad shape often need refreshing.”
