San Bartolome de Tirajana, beach and guaranteed fun
San Bartolomé de Tirajana is one of the most popular European destinations with the gay community, thanks to its diversity, tolerant atmosphere, good weather all year round, and its guaranteed fun. A holiday here in this town in Gran Canaria means you can enjoy a combination of bathing at idyllic beaches (many of them nudist or with a gay vibe) and a lively nightlife in any of its numerous and varied discos, where everyone is welcome. If you’re visiting in May you can celebrate the Maspalomas Gay Pride Festival together with thousands of others: you’ll be able to catch live shows, enjoy multitudinous parades, and party until dawn. You’ll also love the Maspalomas International Carnival (which usually takes place in March) and the fantastic outfits and stratospheric high heels at the Drag Gala. And if after all this celebrating you feel like relaxing and looking after your body, you can always go to any of the area’s multiple spas and enjoy a Finnish sauna or a Turkish bath with aromatherapy.
