Will Rogers State Beach, Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area, CA 90272, Los Angeles, United States
beach type: sandy (细沙)
Many gay travellers who want to stay near the beach in Los Angeles opt for Santa Monica. Gay West Hollywood is twenty minutes by car up the picturesque Santa Monica Boulevard, while Venice beach and its muscle Marys are twenty minutes’ walk down the coast.
Santa Monica is where many gay Angelenos eat and party. The area is really mixed and lifestyles so integrated that you won’t see rainbow flags.
The historic Santa Monica pier is the big attraction, offering everything from food stalls and fun rides to an aquarium, a trapeze school, live music, an amusement arcade plus the odd yoga and tai-chi classes. This is California, after all.
At the top of Santa Monica there is a gay-popular section in the segment called Will Rogers State Beach (or in gay parlance Ginger Rogers Beach) opposite Patrick’s Roadhouse restaurant. This is where college guys, West Hollywood residents and tourists sunbathe and cruise discreetly, especially at weekends.
