Fort Lauderdale has been focused on LGBT tourism for decades, and Sebastian Beach has won accolades as one of America’s top gay beaches. The beachgoers are mostly male, and the beach is (naturally) much more crowded on the weekends.
This great sunbathing area is located near many hotels, as well as some gay bed and breakfasts—and the water is generally clear and warm.
