EASTHAM, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — Coast Guard Beach in Eastham adds an accolade to its famed reputation.

The beach at the Cape Cod National Seashore was just added to a national top 10 list by Dr. Stephen Leatherman, also known as "Dr. Beach." Coast Guard Beach took the number ten spot, one of only two beaches in the northeast to even make the list. The other was Cooper's Beach in Southampton, New York.

"Dr. Beach" praised the "spectacular view of the Nauset Spit barrier system" and the picturesque old Coast Guard station.

The east-facing strip of coast has been home to life-saving operations of one kind of another since 1786.

Leatherman, who is the Director of the Laboratory for Coastal Research at Florida International University, runs the annual list as a side hobby. He's been releasing the list every year since 1991.
