Gunnison Nude & Gay Beach

Gunnison Nude Beach

The eastern shore of Sandy Hook is home to Gunnison Nude & Gay Beach, one of the most popular gay beaches in New Jersey. Gunnison Beach is clothing-optional and a fantastic place for a summer day trip. Locals from New Jersey as well as New York City frequent Gunnison. Ferry service from Manhattan makes the journey quite easy.

I found the crowd at the Gunnison gay nude beach to be quite open and friendly. Groups of friends mingle and passing beachgoers often say hello. People are much more relaxed here, similar to the vibe in New York’s cherished Fire Island Pines gay community. 

After you take your first trip to Gunnison, I’ll bet you can’t wait to visit again!

Getting to the Gunnison Nude Gay Beach 

If you’re driving, you can park inside of Sandy Hook’s Gateway National Recreation Area. For Gunnison Beach, follow signs for Lot G. The shore is only a five-minute walk from here.

If you’re traveling from New York City, then you also have the option of using the Sandy Hook ferry service. While it’s not as frequent, it can definitely be faster than driving on a weekend morning during summer.

Bacchus Inn B&BPeriodically we’ll feature one of our properties here to let our readers know about some great gay friendly places to stay:

John & Lisa welcome you to Bacchus Inn, a beautiful sea-side B&B in Cape May’s historic district. We’re close to boutique stores, great dining, and the beach.

Bacchus Inn B&B has two buildings – our cottage and our main house – for a total of thirteen guest rooms. Each of our guest rooms offers in-room a/c and heat, a queen-sized or king-sized bed, and a private bathroom. Some rooms have fireplaces and televisions – please ask when you book your reservation.

Most rooms also have on-site parking, and bicycles for guest use. We also offer beach chairs and towels for guest use. We also offer wifi internet access to help you keep in touch with friends, family, and work back home.

Bacchus Inn is named after the Roman god of wine, the son of Jupiter who taught man how to cultivate grapevines and how to create wine. Bacchus represents not just wine, but wine’s social and beneficial influences. We’ve carried the wine theme throughout our Victorian inn. Relax with a glass of wine in our Victorian parlor or on our porch, or play a game of billiards with your partner or another guest.

The “Main House” was originally built in 1872 by a local developer as a summer cottage for a prominent Philadelphia milliner. The house retains its historic charm, with a grand dining room and a Victorian parlor. The main house also has an enclosed porch where you can relax in warm or cool weather. There’s also a wide, open porch, where you can relax in a rocking chair.

The main house has nine guestrooms, filled with period antiques and modern amenities, each named for a different wine region, including Bordeaux and Tuscany.

The “Cottage” was originally built in 1878, and has two porches on the ground floor – a front porch with rocking chairs and a side porch with three small cafe tables. There’s also a sun deck on the 3rd floor.

The cottae has four guest rooms, each named after a different wine, including Chardonnay and Zinfandel.

If you’re coming to Cape May for business or pleasure, come stay with us at Bacchus Inn Bed & Breakfast.

Other Gay Beach Towns

Colonial Beach house We all love Rehoboth Beach, Del. Fire Island remains a popular and iconic destination for gay beachgoers, especially from the New York area. And Provincetown continues to draw LGBT crowds for its laid-back vibe and welcoming atmosphere. But if you’re looking for something new, there are gay-friendly beach towns off the beaten path. Here are a few within driving distance of Washington. Colonial Beach, Va. Chris Adcock and Ted Tait were drawn to Colonial Beach in 2011 for its reputation as a great boating town. Once docked, they discovered its gay life. For those wanting to skip the fast-paced partying and slow-moving traffic of Rehoboth Beach, Del., Tait and Adcock recommend Virginia’s second-largest beach for its quaint, small-town feel and warm acceptance. “They’re drastic opposite ends of the spectrum in a good way,” Adcock says. “Rehoboth is the new, modern, clubby younger scene where as Colonial Beach is much more sleepy and neighborhoody. Everybody knows everybody.”
