TALLAHASSEE (CBSMiami/AP) — One of South Florida’s beaches made the Top 10 Beach List for 2014.

Bill Baggs Cape Florida State Park in Key Biscayne ranked seventh on the list.

Barefoot Beach in Bonita Springs ranked second and St. George Island State Park in the Panhandle ranked came in third.  Delnor-Wiggins Pass State Park in Naples nailed the tenth slot to give Florida a total of four beaches on the list.

The list is produced by coastal expert Dr. Stephen P. Leatherman, who is also a professor at Florida International University. Dr. Beach, as he’s known, bases the ratings on 50 criteria including beach material, water temperature, sand softness, smell, trash, safety record, and algae in the water.

Three of the four nationally ranked beaches are found within Florida State Parks.
