In Australia, Sydney’s North Bondi Beach has quite the reputation and the scenery to match. A mix of locals and tourists gather here to sit back and enjoy a very popular and crowded gay friendly beach. Located just 5 miles from the city centre near North Bondi Surf Club, this is the closest ocean beach to the city. Alcohol is not permitted, but there are many places nearby to order a drink after you are done with the sea and sand.

Currently, one of the most vibrant cities in the Middle East is Tel Aviv in Israel. During the summer months there are late night swim parties on Hilton Beach which should not be missed. It is the place to be if you are looking for a great atmosphere and big crowds. Located right next to Independence Park and the Hilton Hotel, this bustling beach is a must visit.

Sitges, Spain is home to the centrally located gay beach of Playa de la Bassa Rodona near Picnic Restaurant and Hotel Calipolis. If you are looking for a place to show off your designer glasses or your newly toned body, this is the place for you. There is a healthy mix of straight and gay beach goers, but unfortunately there is also an overload of beach hawkers who are constantly looking to sell you massage treatments and refreshments.

Let's not completely dismiss beaches that are a bit closer to home either. The shingle and pebble beach of Brighton in East Sussex is not only known as the place to go for gay sunbathers, but also for the official nudist section. It’s popularity remains high due to clean water, easy accessibility and natural beauty. Make sure to pack food and drink though as it is a bit of trek to the nearest restaurant or bar from the beach once you arrive.
