Miami Beach is one of the hottest spots for the LGBT culture and travel, with a variety of destinations for travelers to enjoy. Focusing on relaxation and fun, we put together a new list of the hottest LGBT-friendly hangouts in Miami Beach:

Haulover Beach

Located in North Beach, Haulover Park is a clothing optional beach. Far North of the lifeguard tower you will find the park’s gay nude beach area. Bring a towel, sunscreen, and sunglasses and you’re ready for a fun-filled day.

TWIST is diverse in every sense of the word. This South Beach club is two levels of rooms with themes like Go-Go, EDM, and pop. Their mantra is, “Never a Cover—Always a Groove.” So, don’t worry about paying to enter, the owners just want you to have fun! Twist is only a four-minute walk from The Winter Haven Hotel.

Kill Your Idol

Kill Your Idol is not your average bar. The hipster South Beach hotspot is decorated with quirky artifacts including a statue of Bruce Lee and an astronaut hanging from the roof. While this dive bar is not exclusively labeled as a “gay bar,” like other spots mentioned in this list, it makes the list for its all-inclusive atmosphere and lively drag shows on Mondays.
