Best Beach Resort Town

Anyone see that for the second consecutive year Provincetown earned the honor of being named the best "Beach Resort Town" in the world, according to an online poll of international voters? The poll was conducted by GayCities. Provincetown beat out such rivals as Rio de Janeiro, Puerto Vallarta, Fort Lauderdale, Miami, Key West and Tel Aviv.

The survey noted that many of Provincetown's beaches are accessible by bike and present opportunities for swimming, surfing, whale watching, dune hiking and picnicking.

I think the level of tolerance and acceptance is more relevant than the bike trails. Mexico, Israel, Brazil - all very traditional, old school countries that just happen to have a gay scene - doesn't preclude violence if one strays into the old part of Tel Aviv or flirts with the wrong hot person in Latin or South America.

Provincetown is safe for babies and toddlers, open and acceptant of diversity, and fun on almost every level. That being said, there are superior beaches on a purely superficial level

No way are the beaches better than the others on the list...what is better is Ptown is gay friendly & safe. Fyi water is cold so give me the Caribbean anyday.
