The 10 Best Nude Gay Beaches in the World: Can You Bare It?

Saint Martin, West Indies: Orient Bay
This two-mile long stretch of white sand in the Caribbean welcomes all—slim, fleshy, gay, straight—though beachgoers tend to be from the U.S. and Europe with a sprinkling of locals. Those wanting a full-on, full-frontal experience book a stay at the luxurious Club Orient resort. Public nudity is allowed in front of the resort, though you’ll find sun-worshippers in various forms of undress almost everywhere.

    This is actually NOT a picture of Hanlan’s Point Beach. The beach is on the other side of the Island ( Lake Ontario side ) facing away from downtown. You can see the west end of Toronto and Mississauga (and sometimes all the way to Hamilton from the beach, butThe Skyline of Downtown Toronto can be viewed from the North ( Harbour Side of Toronto Islands )

    In San Francisco, a nude beach that’s even gayer and a bit friskier than Baker Beach is Marshall Beach (once, and sometimes still, known as Bad Boy Beach), which is one beach closer to the Golden Gate Bridge than Baker, but separated from it by rocks that are difficult to cross. Access to Marshall is via paths from the top of the bluff.

    Becareful baring it all in P-town…it is not a gay beach and is constantly patrolled. If caught, you will be fined and can be arrested for at least on night in jail.

    Obviously the writer has travelled very little and has researched this article even less. 70% of the beaches mentioned are in the usa (how patriotic and typically insular) Has the writer never been to or heard of Super Paradise in Mykonos Greece? How about the nude beaches of Sitges, Spain. Byrons Bay, Australia?
    C’mon, try to write outside of your American Box.

    In Chicago, it use 2B Belmont Rocks was the gay section.
    Now its Hollywood Beach way on the north end.
    Most all beaches in Chicago are heavily patrolled..
    So you don’t have the option or freedom to go nude which
    is ashame…if you do probably get arrested….jerzy

    Haulover Beach in Florida is awesome. I used to go there all the time about 5 years ago. Great memories of that place. Gays to the left, straights stay on the right side of the beach.

    That is not Costa de Capairca, it’s just a stock photo of some beach. There are no buildings running along Praia 19. Nice try, though.

    What about Maspalomas Gran Canaria, and the Barcelona gay beach (whatever it’s called)?

    The best nude beach I have found is on Otok Lukrum, a small island off of Dubrovnik Croatia. The beach is not exclusively gay, but the trails behind the beach have some very hot action.
    The best part is this beach is officially a nude beach with postings and a surrounding fence to keep out anyone that may be offended.

    You forgot european beaches that are bigger.. trust me, very bigger an the mediterranean sea is much more beautiful than ocean.. for example see Cap d’Agde in France, a nudist town of 50.000 people(in part gay and bisexual)! Inside you go to do shopping or in the bank nude! Spain is plain of fantastic beach… and gran canaria? and Mykonos? Europe is better for beaches respect to USA.

    San Onofre, CA, on the border between Orange County and San Diego County. The nude beach is actually part of Camp Pendleton but for years the Marines have looked the other way. But recently state rangers and the marines have been ticketing nude bathers that cross into the Camp’s beach.

    “top ten in the world” would put one, maybe two in the U.S. – and 4 or 5 in Europe (Ibiza, Mykonos, Playa del Ingles, Zandvoort, L’Espiguette.. all rank well above many mentioned here) … either very biased or not well researched…
