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.
staff will evaluate your beach based upon set criteria focused on beach
healthy and safety. In the rare event that a beach does not meet
the certification criteria, the annual fee will be refunded.
