With wintertime approaching here in the Northern Hemisphere, what’s a gay beachcomber to do? Why not flip the seasonal script and head south of the equator, where summer will be here before you know it? Here are six fun options for the beach-loving queer traveler to consider checking out in the coming months.

1. Punta del Este, Uruguay. The scenic coastline in this small South American country is a popular short trip from Buenos Aires, located a short flight or a ferry ride away. Queer travelers have been drawn to this well-to-do area of the country for years, but they also head west to the quieter Playa Chihuahua beach, located not far from the airport. This is also a nude beach, a testament to the open-minded society here (Uruguay legalized gay marriage back in 2013). And check out the male-only gay hotel located here, Undarius, if you’re looking for some fabulous lodging.

2. Praia Mole, Florianopolis, Brazil. Florianopolis, located between Rio de Janeiro and Buenos Aires, is a stunning island hugging the southern Brazilian coastline. The city is legendary for its nightlife and its beaches. Praia Mole may be one of the most beautiful — and while it’s not an exclusively queer beach, it’s a very popular gathering spot for the local LGBTQ community.

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.

With cold temperatures beginning to blanket the northernmost half of the country, thoughts may turn to tropical climes: Where to go to get away from the oncoming months full of dreary gray skies?

Here are six of the top gay-friendly beaches that you should consider for an easy winter getaway:

Sebastian Beach, Fort Lauderdale

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.

Gay Travel’s Ten Hottest Beaches

Author: , June 3rd, 2011

North Bondi BeachSummer is upon us and if you’re looking for a great spot to cool off … or get hotter … here are 10 gay beaches you’ll definitely want to check out.

10. Little Beach (Maui, HI): Don’t let the name fool you! This popular clothing optional spot is about one mile south of the Makena Beach and Golf Resort in south Maui. Walk to the beach, turn right, and hike over the promontory at the end to “Little Beach.” The far end is the gayest and the bevy of bronzed guys and gals is definitely worth the trek. (Check out hotels in Maui)

9. Oval Beach (Saugatuck, MI): Known as the “Provincetown of the Midwest,” Saugatuck is home to Oval Beach, a bastion of the LGBT community. The unspoiled dunes of Lake Michigan’s eastern shore and the back dunes area of Oval Beach make this the perfect spot for sunbathing in the nude.
