Toronto’s best gay beach is called Hanlan’s Point Beach. The beach is a kilometer long and located on the southwest corner of Toronto Island, near the Billy Bishop Airport. The beach became legally clothing optional in 2002 and now draws flocks of suntanners on warm summer days.
To get to the nude section of the beach, take the Hanlan’s Point Ferry from the Jack Layton Ferry Terminal (in the summer there’s a ferry every hour, and costs about $7.50.) Once on the point, follow the paved trail south to the beach. You can drop your Speedos when you cross the boundary of the nude section and feel the Toronto bay breeze on your boys.
