Voting Starts Friday for ‘Best Restored Beach’

On the heels of St. Pete Beach clinching TripAdvisor’s ‘Best Beach in the U.S.’ nod, the area’s award-winning coastline inches towards another accolade.

The American Shore & Beach Preservation Association has released their list of the ‘Best Restored Urban Beaches’ with Treasure Island/Long Key making the cut. Listed in the poll as ‘Pinellas County, FL,’ the local favorite and 2006 champ is one of 27 past-winners vying for the best of the best crown.

The ASBPA has lauded local officials for its continued dedication to beach nourishment throughout Long Key, which encompasses, among other beach communities, St. Pete Beach. The organization was particularly impressed with the efforts used to maintain the white-sand beaches following 2004’s devastating hurricane season.

Official polling begins this Friday, March 30, and voters can select one beach each day through April 27. To vote for our beaches, visit the official ASBPA poll here.

The ASBPA has been the country’s leading beach preservation association since 1926, awarding ‘Best Restored Beach’ titles to exceptionally-preserved shorelines across the U.S. for the last 40 years. In selecting its top candidates for the list, the organization looks for economic and ecological gains the beach provides to its community, short and long-term success of the project and how the community worked together to initiate the preservation.
