    World Best Beach? I think that is pushing it a bit…

      I love the Shores, but these people need to get out a little. I think Florida has the best beaches in the US easily….. From the wildlife, warm waters, beautiful sand beaches! The only problem with them is they are not in California.

    • What happened to Hanalei, Kauai? What happened to Mahia, New Zealand, What happened to Cowaramup, Western Australia….. Are you surrounded by kooks or what?

    I think they confused two surveys — average IQ of Gogobot’s registered users and what beaches they like.
