Los Angeles–based website LAist.com has ranked the five gayest beaches in California -- seemingly based on their distance from West Hollywood hot spot the Abbey and how many men are likely to be wearing spandex, Speedos, or simply nothing at all -- with Santa Monica’s Will Rogers State Beach taking the top spot.

Just 12 miles away from the Abbey and boasting “swimming trunks often a size too small,” Will Rogers admittedly takes top honors because it’s the closest beach to West Hollywood, even though the website notes its questionable water quality.

Rounding out the list are the El Matador nude beach in Malibu, West Street Beach in Laguna Beach, San Onofre State Beach in San Clemente, and Black’s Beach in San Diego (which is also nude).
