Melt every icicle

15 sizzling boys-on-the-beach pics that will make you totally forget it’s still winter


Rain and snow and winds and chills; we’ve had enough of this winter gloom here in North America. But after a scroll through Instagram things are on the rise. From Brazil to Australia to France, we found enough beachside hotness to melt every icicle.

And while it may be winter for us, there’s plenty of rising temperatures elsewhere this season. It’s never too early to start planning the next big gay getaway.

Check out our top favorite Instagram beach photos.
