Get Listed, Get Certified. 
National Healthy Beaches Campaign (NHBC) Certification reflects a demonstrated commitment to promoting the awareness of environmental and safety issues facing all beaches, while presenting your beach as a desirable travel destination.  NHBC is not associated with the annual list of America's best beaches, issued by Dr. Stephen P. Leatherman ("Dr. Beach") and membership in NHBC does not serve as criteria for or influence such selections.
