Closer by, the Gay West Hollywood strip of Santa Monica Blvd. connects Hollywood directly to the beach! Simply go west, and in a quick 30 minutes you'll be at the beach. You'll find 4 gay friendly beaches close to West Hollywood.

The Gay Beach in Los Angeles is Will Rogers Beach. The demise of one of the oldest gay bars in Los Angeles, The Friendship, which was located next to Will Rogers Beach, has somewhat reduced the concentration of gays there. The gay part of the beach is located on the west side of Will Rogers Beach, which is known to gays as Ginger Rogers Beach. While there are less gays here these days, many still come for official advanced gay volleyball games regularly during the summer. (See below for beginners volleyball) There's no need to sign up in advance and if there's no gay volleyball games there are other groups you can join in.

Locate San Vicente Blvd in Santa Monica and take that west. Turn right on 7th street which turns into Entrada Drive which then turns into West Channel Road. Park along West Channel Road but don't go all the way to Pacific Coast Highway or you won't be able to come back up! Walk down towards Pacific Coast Highway and go down to the tunnel.

While not gay, but very gay friendly, both Santa Monica Beach and Venice Beach are two other beautiful beaches also close to West Hollywood. You'll have a great time visiting all of the attractions both offer.

Venice had an all-gay beach long ago, but still has The Roosterfish, a gay bar in Venice near the beach and the only gay bar in the area.

Beginners Gay Volleyball is also played here on the sand at the boundry between the two beaches. Look for the gay flag where Navy Street hits the beach.

There are no nude beaches in the Los Angeles area, however Gay West Hollywood has one clothing optional hotel, the San Vicente Inn, 2 naturist social groups, and a naked yoga group.

More info on local gay beaches from laist.

There is no gay beach in Malibu, an area filled with expensive celebrity real estate, but there are four very nice beaches.

Zuma Beach - Popular with teenagers

Malibu Beach - Popular with surfers

Point Dume Cove - Quiet; must hike down

Paradise Cove - Wonderful beach, bar, and restaurant; one of the few places where you can enjoy cocktails on the sand. **Highly Recommended**
