In 2003 the Lecciona free beach was voted as the best gay beach in Italy by the italian gay website Gay.it. Lecciona has been a gay beach since the 70's and the wild dunal environment, protected by the Natural Park, has helped making this beach a private relaxing spot on the coast attracting year after year more gays and lesbians.
Try a walk along the shore and admire the beauties that come here on summer weekends, walking from Bocachica bar/restaurant towards Viareggio, you'll get the straight first, then the curious ones, transexuals, lesbian girls and at the very end of your walk, the gay guys! The atmosphere is easy-going and familiar.
If you are into bathing establishments, Mama Beach is your place! Mama Mia, the first GLBT bathing establishment in Italy, boasts with fields where you can play volleyball or beach volley and is equipped with all the facilities that a bathing establishment should have.
If you have had enough of the Lecciona Beach or Torre (or simply want to avoid seeing your ex again...) try the many gay beaches in Tuscany.
We suggest you this list of three:
Sassoscritto, south of Livorno. Drive along the aurelia towards south and between Livorno and Quercianella, 100 metres before the restaurant "Il Sassoscritto" there's a little path that goes downwards to the cliffs. If you are not driving, hop on a bus from Livorno to Romito.
The Rimigliano beach, in the homonymous Park. 6 kilometres ahead from San Vincenzo towards Piombino, neraby an old cottage you will find the path that, through the pinewood, lead to the beach; it's only a 2 min. walk. Once here, walk for about 100 metres on the left. FKK beach for gays and lesbians.
The oasis of Bolgheri in Marina di Bibbona. Drive towards Cecina on the S.P. 39, after you pass the hotel Hermitage, take a left and stop after 1,5 km. At the end of the road you will find a path to the beach; 3 min. walk Once here walk for about 10-15 min. on the left.
For hot encounters, visit the "Fonti di etriolo" on the torrent Farma, nearby the thermal centre in Bagni di Petriolo (SI). 180 km from Torre del Lago. Thermal waters always accessible, even at night.
