Puerto Vallarta: Playa Los Muertos

The gay beach is at the south end of the Playa Los Muertos and is usually referred to as the “blue chairs” for the seating put out by the gay resort of the same name. Many a lad has had the back end of his speedo glued to these chairs for the better part of a sunny day, soaking in the sun, booze and intensely homoerotic vibes. The flirty interplay between the mostly Mexican locals and gay visitors from around the globe is fun to watch.

    The common problem with all those beaches? Too crowded. I prefer somewhere like Blooming Point on Prince Edward Island. Miles of red sand/dunes with few people.

    whoever wrote the articlke about “best gay beaches” in the world, really didnt research it enough. How can he leave out such great gay and nude beaches in Toronto, and Sandy Hook, NJ, Blacks beach in San Diego, and Hollywood beach in Chicago (not nude, just a ton of fun !)

    I think this writer has missed the North American West Coast entirely, from Wrecks Beach in Vancouver, BC (mixed, but nude/pot/gay friendly) down to Blacks Beach in San Diego (save energy for the hike back up, and Laguna’s West Street Beach, and Los Angeles’ Will Rogers (aka Ginger Rogers) Beach, and up the coast…
