A trip to gay Miami requires time in the sand while sipping light lagers to the sound of waves crashing on the shore. With lovely shorelines, the city hosts a wealth of beaches, but two gay beaches in Miami are in particular interest to LGBT travelers.
At the intersection of Ocean Boulevard and 12th Street in South Beach, you’ll find 12th Street Beach. This gay beach in Miami is walking distance from the gay clubs, bars, and hotels of the strip. Here, you’ll find bronzed bodies chatting beneath the proud pride flags.
Meanwhile, nudists will want to check out Haulover Beach, a clothing-optional beach a half an hour North of the South Beach, past Bal Harbour on Collins Ave. The beach has been named one of the best nude beaches in the world by multiple travel publications for its size, draw, and stunning scenery.
