Miami Beach has a pair of gay beaches, one of them a good-ways up north at 10800 Collins Avenue
, called Haulover Beach
, which is a haul from South Beach but popular because you're allowed to tan in the buff here. The other, with a much more central location for South Beach visitors, is the 12th Street Beach, which is just off Ocean Drive
, across the street from the Palace Restaurant and Bar and beyond the grassy landscaped area. Nudity is not permitted here, but that doesn't stop the many sexy sunbathers here from wearing the skimpiest possible swimsuits and g-strings.
The photo here actually looks north from a point slightly north of the main gay beach area (it was taken from up around 14th Street and Ocean Drive), but this gives a good idea of just how lovely the sand is at the South Beach gay section - a broad, beautiful, sugary-white expanse of sand fronting the lovely Atlantic surf.
