    My brother and I are planning a beach trip for late August. We'd like to visit a gay beach in Southern Califonia, but there are several to choose from. We also realize that there may be beaches we've never heard of. So, I'd like some recommedations, if you don't mind. We'd like to be able to (1) get in the water, (2) lay out for a bit, (3) play some volleyball, and (4) see some "havable" eye candy. One more thing: we don't mind nude beaches.

    hey there! Well, there's Will Rogers beach, that's the gay beach on the west side.

    Laguna Beach in general is another good location.

    Yup, don't know if Will Rogers (aka "Ginger" Rogers) Beach (north end of Santa Monica on PCH) is the best, but you can always find gay boys there. I was there just yesterday, in fact. They have several volleyball nets set up near the parking lot off of PCH, but you probably need to get there early to use them. It's not a nude beach, unfortunately... straights and their kids often show up oblivious to the fact that they're surrounded by attractive, single men.

    I never said I'd go nude at the nude beach, guys. icon_lol.gif I've been to Black's in San Diego, but I've always kept my clothes on.

    So, Will Rogers, huh? How does it stack up against, say, West Beach in Laguna Beach?

    Santa Monica Bay beaches are not that great in my opinion, like stated before, Laguna strip is your best bet in OC. Point Dume cove in Malibu is an amazing little beach that even on packed weekends is rarely even 25% full. The fact thats its a hike to get down there weeds out most people. Amazingly clear water there. Its a marine preserve. Not too much boy watching, although there are often cute sufers hanging around, swimming is best towards the end of the beach going south, past the reef.

    Laguna Beach's beaches are more picturesque. Of course, unless you're in the area they are a haul to get to. All depends where you're staying and how much time you want to dedicate.

    Too bad about not going nude. Can we at least convince you to wear Speedos?

    I'll be wearing speedos for the first time. And, like my buddy Sluggo, I will take a pic or two. Because I'm studying for the October LSAT, I don't get out much. I'm looking forward to hanging out with my brother and getting some sun.

    Yes, the OC beaches are more picturesque. But I don't want to be bored. I've had fun at West Beach, though. Is Will Rogers really that great?

    San Onofre State Park

    The gay section is on the stretch of beach between lifeguard tower six and the edge of Camp Pendleton Marine Corp Base, the nude beach area.

    or

    El Matador (northern malibu)
    http://www.gayoutdoors.org/page.cfm?typeofsite=storydetail&id=586&storyset=yes

    "The rugged beaches of northern malibu are where Angelenos go for their fix of wild coastline---all of them, it sometimes seem. But somewhere along the Pacific Coast Highway, about halfway between the twin mob scenes at Zuma and Leo Carillo, a simple brown sign indicates you're passing El Matador State Beach. Don't. Instead, park in the tiny lot, follow the narrow trail, and descend the steep staircase down the 150-foot bluff. You'll discover a paradise only the locals know about. The crowds are small and mixed men/women and gay/straight. Towering, jagged freestanding rocks dot the shorebreak and the beach, creating tide pools and private pockets of white sand. They're the perfect spots for El Matador's prime actvity: just chilling and watching the waves break, preferably with the one you love. If it's a weekday, you'll likely have the place to yourselves. But if you're not alone head 100 yards north to a deserted quarter-mile strip of sand, where beach access is limited by the sprawling estates perched overhead. Careful: High tide could leave you stranded. Then again, that might not be a bad thing."

    Discovered it the last time I was in LA - incredible.

    Come to Hermosa Beach. I'll be down there. icon_smile.gif

    Seriously, I went to Laguna's West Beach (admittedly during the week but 3 July) and it was a ghost town. I haven't heard of Will Rogers, but it will have to have shit for sand to make me drive all the way out to West Beach again.

    I go to Black's in San Diego. The cliff is tough but give me a good workout. I went nude a couple of times but prefer to wear a thong there or something real skimpy. I take it off when I tan my butt and put it back on when I go swimming. Great place to swim too!

    Hey guys,

    I ended up going to West Street Beach in Orange County. It's an awesome beach with all the requisite "trimmings." I had fun and even took pictures, some of which I uploaded last night.

    If you live in Southern CA and have never been to West Street Beach, make haste before summer ends. But go on Sunday.
