We have narrowed down the top gay nude beaches for you so if you're looking for place to skinny dip in the Pacific Ocean amongst other gays, take a look below. 

Bakers Beach, San Francisco

Bakers Beach, on the northwest part of the peninsula just south of the Golden Gate Bridge. This beach can get crowded so if you're a first timer and feeling nervous to bare all, this could be a bit much for you. Bakers Beach is very popular with gay San Franciscans, there is typically a fun crowd of locals out and about enjoying their time in the sun when the San Francisco weather is best.

Blacks Beach, San Diego


Without a doubt this beach is so gay they should go ahead and make it official and put up a sign, "Gays Only!" That's just about all you will find here, beautiful southern californians basking in the nude. More often than not there is a frisbee game going on and gays of all ages come to enjoy the beach. It is very secluded and can be tricky to find, not to mention it involves a bit of a hike down and back up a steep cliffside. But if you can make the journey you will be glad you did. 

Bonny Doon, Santa Cruz County

Bonny Doon Beach has a reputation for being a peaceful and relaxing beach. It has become more known for being a gay nude beach in recent years and it is the type of beach where you won't be bothered if you don't want to be and can just truly relax. A great spot for a first timer nervous about going nude. It is a good idea to keep your shoes on or wear a good pair of sandles as there are many rocks and even broken glass here.

Gaviota Beach, Santa Barbara County

Gaviota Beach is a solitary beach protected by high cliffs. It is in a state park and the nude beach section is a couple of miles from the main park. Gay sunbathers tend to stay furthest down the beach from the entry point.
