“Black’s Beach always had parking and access problems.” said Queerty reader NateOcean, “A few dozen mile north is San Onofre State Beach. I don’t know the current status (nudity lawsuits come and go) but San Onofre is a fine beach with easy access either by car or bicycle, with a diverse and welcoming crowd”

“My favourite European beach is Paragem 19, just north of Fonte da Telha, south of Lisbon in Portugal,” says Queerty user FannyLove. “This again is a wild beach with no buildings or developments, just miles of pale sand, dunes, very dense scrubland and wooded areas, and on any given day between May and October, you’ll find hundreds of men cruising here.

La Chihuahua Beach, Punta del Este, Uruguay
Not widely known yet to those north of the equator, Punta del Este is one of South America’s hottest gay seafronts, and La Chihuahua Beach is where the gays congegrate. “Here one will find gay and nude sunbathers, many from the other Río de la Plata sister nation, and Uruguay’s neighbor, Argentina,” says GayCities user GSM CMDA.

Lady Jane Beach, Sydney, Australia
Officially known as Lady Bay but widely called Lady Jane, this lovely little beach lies on the other side of Port Jackson Harbor from Sydney’s other gay naturist area, Obelisk Beach. More tourists come to Lady Jane, but not enough to make us skip this sandy gem.

Playa del Muerto (Cala del Home Mort Beach), Sitges, Spain
Don’t let the name fool you, Dead Man’s Beach is a gay male nude stretch of pebbly seaside in the very gay enclave of Sitges. Go southwest along the railroad track away from Terramar Hotel. Woodsy cruising goes down on the other side of the tracks.

San Gregorio Beach, San Gregorio, CA
“I would cast a vote for San Gregorio nude beach (the gay end, not the straight end)south of San Francisco” says gaym50ish.
“In California, there are several beaches, their popularity has changed but they are still, very Gay, but maybe not as young.” says Queerty reader ronsfo, “San Gregorio, has stories wonderful Gay beach stories.”

While not a gay exclusive beach there’s always a significant number of gay naturists sunning themselves on the Cap D’adge beach (it is France, after all). Cap D’adge is situated on the Mediterranean Sea in the Languedoc-Rousillon region of France. The “unofficial” gay section of the bar is just to the right of the beach with families to the left.

Lady Bay is a very small beach on Sydney harbour but if you are ever in Sydney the better nude beach to visit is Little Congwong Beach at La Perouse. It is a bigger nicer beach on Botany Bay and while not an official nude beach the local authorities are aware that people go nude here and don’t mind. It also gets a little cruisy.
No impressed by this list at all. If I want to see some nude bodies, I will go to sandy hook in Jersey. You get hot men from NY,NJ,Philly and DC.. I love to travel the world but looking for a nude beach isn’t something I would concern myself with.
I have never understood why people find the need to wear anything at any beach. It’s like wearing clothes while taking a bath or shower. It doesn’t make sense. People are such prudes over the naked body. It should be celebrated as the natural ate of being.
Hey Queerty …….. Its 2016, get with the times.
For you to think you have to stick a heart sticker on the butt in your lead picture is just ridiculous.
This ain’t The Christian Science Monitor.
@Dave Downunder: Looks absolutely stunning.
One day I must go to Australia.
