Gay guide to MASPALOMAS & What you need to know!

A quick guide to getting the most out of your gay holiday to Gran Canaria.

Maspalomas Gay Scene
  • Gran Canaria - An Island of festivals.

    Events kick off in early Feb and March with the Maspalomas Gay Carnival. The drag queen gala competition in La Palma is one of the world’s most famous. There’s even a bear carnival! The Island’s events keep the entire resort of Maspalomas full almost year-round so you should book your hotel well in advance! Don’t wait for prices to drop last minute, they will be fully booked!

Gran Canaria can be as hectic or as relaxed as you desire! There are stunning resorts with peaceful pools and adult only beaches! Or there’s the crazy scene at the No 7 beach in Maspalomas. You can have an all-you-can-eat Chinese buffet, or dine with stunning views of the ocean!

The town of Playa del Ingles is well known as one of the top 5 gay destinations in Europe. More than 20+ gay hotels and resorts and a lively gay bar and cruise scene centred around the Yumbo Centrum do battle for the pink pound and euro, ensuring a lively if ever changing scene that continues to attract visitors both old and new!

People of all ages visit the Island, with bars catering to different tastes, types and languages! The scene is attitude-free and open, welcoming to all.

During the day, join all the other guys and head to the Maspalomas Gay Beack at Kiosk 7. Explore the sand dunes, one of Europe’s largest outdoor cruising areas and meet new friends by the beach!

Nights kick off late in the Yumbo, in the heart of Playa del Ingles. From fun cabaret shows to cruise bars with cavernous darkrooms, you won’t be short of entertainment. Late night bars on the top floor of the Yumbo start to fill up from 3am and continue well after sunrise!

For a more local fell, check out the gay scene in Las Palms, the Island’s capital. Finally, to experience Maspalomas at its wildest, come in May for Pride, November for Winter Pride or October for the Fetish Weekend!

Here are the hotels we recommend that have good reviews and keep you close to all the action
