Nothing beats a nice, relaxing day at the beach soaking up the sun and taking a dip in the cool waters. Even better is finding a gay-friendly beach where you can truly be yourself without fear of judgment or harassment due to your sexual orientation. Some beaches are secluded and difficult to reach, while others are found right in the heart of popular gay-friendly destinations. Some lean towards clothing-optional, others have cruising areas and a handful of these top gay beaches are mixed among the hetero-friendly ones. All, however, are great spots to enjoy the summer sun along with other friendly, like-minded LGBT beachgoers.
