Fire Island, New York
Head to Fire Island’s Pines Beach, if you’re looking for a fun party beach with gay-friendly shopping, hotels, vacation rentals and a vibrant nightlife. The island, adjacent to the south shore of Long Island, is packed with eye candy. Nudity is allowed on the shore, but most guys enjoy sporting their fabulous new Speedos. The island plays host to several LGBT events, including the multi-cultural Fire Island Black Out in Cherry Grove.
