As the heat rises, our inhibitions drop (along with our swim trunks), and Warm Sands is the capital of clothing-optional. This finite region of Palm Springs is compact-yet-packed with gay resorts and guys galore.

For help maneuvering this fleshy fiesta, Visit Gay Palm Springs has you covered… or uncovered, as the sexy case may be. We’re taking the temperature of the hottest spots in Warm Sands, so let’s dive (skin) deep!


Desert Paradise – An intimate establishment with barely a dozen rooms, DP has designed each of its themed abodes around campy portraits of esteemed gay divas. The walls are graced with paintings of Cher, Madonna, Bette Midler, etc. If you make friends with enough of your neighbors, you can experience them all!

The Hacienda – This exclusive resort provides you the personal touch without getting too touchy. The attentive staff caters to your requests, especially if those requests include just floating au naturale in the nudey nude (we promise they’re more mature than the writer of this article).


El Mirasol – Get loose like the Spruce Goose, because this historic property was designed by Howard Hughes back in the 1940’s. Three decades later, it became a gay male Mecca, luring gregarious guests with its 10-person hot tub and eucalyptus steam seduction.

INNdulge – Prepare to put the “butt” in “butterfly” because INNdulge gets social! Share breakfast with new friends, mingle at the evening mixers, and slough off your bashfulness like those unwanted clothes.

Vista Grande – Two words: steam room. See you there! …OK, two words can’t do this lovely establishment justice. Tom will pamper you like the hunky muscle mom you never had, preparing three meals a day for his guests and ushering you into a naughty nirvana (steam room)!

All Worlds – The playroom isn’t for kids and the action isn’t for the shy. The Fast & Furious franchise is less cruisey than this place, so you won’t be a stranger for long! Enjoy the four (count ‘em, four) pools, two Jacuzzis, and did we mention the playroom? We can’t seem to get it out of our mischievous minds!

Remember: in any clothing optional situation, you should never assume consent. Don’t be grabby, don’t be pushy, just be comfy. Put on your best smile, take off everything else, and let naturism take its course!
