Barcelona Gay Beaches – The Nomadic Boys

We love going to the beach – and the Barcelona gay beaches, only solidify our love for the seashore.

With its epic beach parties, stunning crowds, beautiful weather and lots of activities, Barcelona has a beach to suit every mood. There are beaches for when you need some private time or for when you want to become the life and soul of the party. Each beach has a unique energy and attracts different crowds. However, they all have one thing in common: they’re all fabulous and worth shouting about!

This is our guide to the best gay beaches in Barcelona to check out:

What is the official gay beach in Barcelona?

Barcelona is well-beloved for its beaches and is recognised globally for how incredible they are. In fact, National Geographic has listed it as the number one best beach city in the world.

Whilst only two out of Barcelona’s beaches are considered officially “gay”, we found that every single one we went to is gay-friendly. The official gay beaches of Barcelona are San Sebastian and Mar Bella. However, there are a few others to check out, particularly as you head into Sitges.

5 Nudist Resorts that Will Blow Your Mind – Go Girlfriend

I have a thing for nudist resorts. I like to visit them. I like to write about them. And I know it’s going to shock you, but I’m neither a hippy or a sex addict.

Naturism can be elegant, provocative and yes, a powerful aphrodisiac. But if you’re like most people and have “thigh hopes” scaring you away, the naked truth is freeing. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and looking good naked is easier when you see we all have not-so-perfect bodies.

Five Gay Naked Cruises for 2019 – The Nomadic Boys

Five Gay Naked Cruises for 2019 - The Nomadic Boys

What can we say? We love a naked cruise!

There’s nothing like standing on the deck of a ship whilst being completely nude. We can’t get enough of the sensation of the sun beating down on our skin, listening to the waves crashing against the sides of the boat. The seawater helps create such a refreshing ambience, one of serenity and calm. Plus, the nude gay factor means we’re surrounded by other naked men, great music, delicious drinks, and fine dining. It’s basically a floating gay man’s paradise…

We’ve never felt so close as a couple than when we were sailing across the sea, embracing the bodies that were given to us. Free of all shame and bodily insecurity, naked cruises are made to make you feel proud of yourself, whether you’re single or a couple.

If it’s your first time, you might feel inadequate standing beside other naked men with ripped muscles and perfect figures, but you will really quickly feel like a part of the crowd. This is a list of our favourite naked gay cruises from all around the world that we think you should set sail on in 2019.

All the options below promote body acceptance and welcome you into the experience at your own rate.

Their facilities deliver modern amenities, grounds and facilities to impress and entertainment options to find your groove just as well as similar clothed resorts throughout North America.

Best Australian Gay Beaches – Gay Star News

Australian gay beaches - pixabay

Australia is a paradise.

Well, spiders aside, it is.

Their beaches are some of the most beautiful in the world, with golden sand and sapphire seas just moments from the cultural centers of their cities. They all happen to be populate by hottest people on Earth too. It’s perfect: you just have to avoid a jellyfish here and there.
But as with most things in this world, the way to make those sandy paradises even better is to make it gay. So while it’s summer in the southern hemisphere, strip down and check out all the clothing-optional and gay beaches in Australia.

North Bondi Beach

You have to stress the north in this Australia gay beach because the further you travel in that direction, the gayer it gets. While Bondi Beach proper is for families, head to the right section and you’ll find other gay people, many of whom choose to sunbathe naked. This is probably the most famous beach, so it’s going to be busy.

Drinking is prohibited on the beach annoyingly, but there are plenty of bars on the strip running alongside it. Just make sure you put some clothes on.

Running a Clothing Optional Resort – Gay Star News

InnDulge Palm Springs

‘It’s a relaxed, welcoming, free environment. It makes people comfortable to be who they are. If that’s someone comfortable with their clothes on, great, or with their clothes off, also great. It’s about being in a safe, queer space.’

Jon Jackson and his husband Sandy Miller thought twice before buying Palm Springs’ gay, clothing-optional resort INNdulge in 2010. But little did they know what an amazing experience running the 31-room hotel would be.

Think midnight pool parties, making new friends from around the world, and spending their days in one of the US’s most amazing cities. Palm Springs is of course known for its huge LGBTI population, super cool art deco stylings and 300 days of sunshine a year.

InnDulge Palm Springs

‘We had this bad taste in our mouths,’ says Sandy, over Skype from the South California town now he calls home (both Jon and Sandy are originally from North Carolina). ‘We’d previously moved to San Francisco to save this restaurant we’d invested in. We ended up there for 18 months. It was miserable. Running a restaurant is a horrible business! When we came to purchase the hotel, there was this nagging doubt.’

Gay Nude Beaches in Italy – The Nomadic Boys

gay nude beaches in Italy

Italy is a hotbed for some of the finest men in the world who just love to bare it all at one of the country’s many gorgeous beaches.

After checking out the best gay beaches in Europe, we wanted to discover more from the Italian perspective, so we teamed up with the guys at GayFriendlyItaly.com to showcase the 5 best gay nude beaches in Italy.

One thing to note with regards to public nudity in Italy is that although it is officially illegal, in 2006 nude tanning was legalised in designated areas so you should be fine in the places we list below.

Lecciona beach in Tuscany
Lecciona beach is the most popular gay beach in Italy. It is part of the natural park of Migliarino, San Rossore and Massaciuccoli.

The beach is stunning. We love it because not only is it a sandy beach (most tend to be pebbly or rocky), but it is surrounded by a gorgeous pine forest. This also makes it quite private, hence why it’s a popular spot for nudists.

Bear in mind there are no establishments here. To reach it you have to walk at least 10-15 minutes through the pinewood and sand dunes, so bring all your food, water etc with you.

Naked Southwest France – Gay Star News

Naked Southwest France - Jean-Pierre Leclerc

If you’re looking for some travel inspiration for your next vacation, then LGBTI travel specialist Jean-Pierre Leclerc suggests that the southwest of France should be top of your wish-list.
We spoke with Leclerc, a veteran of the travel industry since 1994, to find out what makes Bordeaux and the beaches of the Aquitaine coast a must-visit destination in France.

What makes the southwest of France a good destination for LGBTI travellers?

No other French region offers such a great lifestyle. Not only are there plenty of monuments, museums, history, and regional traditions, where else can you find the unique combination of beaches, mountains, forests, and rural life? Plus there’s our gastronomy – foie gras, truffle, traditional pastries, and a vast assortment of cheese and wines.

If you’re looking for an active vacation, this is a great region for surfing, kite surfing, biking, cycling, and boating.
It’s also a region that enthusiastically welcomes LGBTI travellers. Plus it’s one of the world’s most popular vacation destinations for naturists.
