Beach 19 - Gay sandy beach at the Atlantic Ocean
If you love the site of naked men lying on the beach, then Beach 19 is the spot for you. Let’s be fair, who wouldn’t love that sight? The sand dunes in the beach create a lovely environment filled with colourful umbrellas and a sense of freedom unlike any other beach. The beauty of Beach 19 is the lack of judgement. There is a peace and loving aura around you that inspires you to be free and proud of your own identity.
While you’re lying under the heat, your eyes will wander over the smooth, blue sky as the sounds of the waves calm every nerve in your body. Beach 19 is one of the most famous gay beaches in Europe. It is a lovely touristic attraction that is known worldwide and, therefore, brings in a lovely gay crowd.
One thing that complements the heat of Beach 19 is the cold waters of the Atlantic Ocean. Yes, the sun can get quite intense, so the waters will cool you off after you’ve check out the beautiful sand dunes. With the scorching sun, don’t forget to bring a pair of flip-flops or shoes because the sand can heat up pretty fast. This way, it will give you the opportunity to walk around the landscape without worrying about burning your feet. A pair of sunglasses and sunscreen will go a long way at Beach 19.
This gay beach brings in men of all ages. If you want a diverse crowd of young and older men, then this gay destination will keep you on your toes. There is a small forest right above the beach where you could explore yourself or with a group. You might end up making a new friend or two up there since it is a popular gathering spot.
Similar to a lot of other isolated beaches, make sure you get your own drinks and food because there is nothing around you. At Beach 19, you are alone with your naked self and a gay crowd. Don’t expect to find any restaurant or bar.
I really hope you enjoy your time at Beach 19 as much as I did.
