The Pines, Fire Island, New York, United States
beach type: sandy (细沙)
attracts: mostly gay (主要同志族群)
Fire Island Pines is the prime playground of the New York gay community affectionately named ‘Chelsea with sand’. Thousands of gay men descend on a small village of only a few dozen permanent residents every summer for swimming, sunbathing and general frolics.
It has everything you need: a marina, restaurants, bars, a gym, a large open-air dance stage perfect for circuit parties, retail shops, a pool – even a post office and a police department. And, of course, gay men in abundance.
Cheap it is not, but who counts the money when one is having so much fun?
