Located about midway between San Diego and Los Angeles it is nicknamed SoHo-by-the-Sea, the area began attracting artists around the turn of the 20th century. Chic Laguna Beach, the jewel of the so-called California Riviera, has long been a favorite of gay men. West Street Beach is definitely the main gay beach and not handicapped-accessible. It is a beautiful, expansive beach by California standards, great for swimming, but without enough surf for surfing. There are no facilities other than Porta-Johns and -Janes, so bring a picnic and an umbrella. There are multiple pathways down. The easiest spot is the paved steps down the south side of the Laguna Royale condo complex at 31423 South Coast Highway. A smaller, more convenient set of steps is adjacent to the private residence at 31351 South Coast Highway. Hit the sand and head north towards the sea of buff, tan bodies. You can't miss it in the summer
