The majority of the gay scene is based in the Yumbo Centre, Playa del Inglés – the main shopping centre by day and den of iniquity by night.
Dining begins in Maspalomas, from around 7pm but, as most of the bars don`t open until 10pm, the serious drinkers don`t arrive before then.With around 40 gay venues shoehorned into the infamous Yumbo Centre, there’s something for everyone – whatever your tastes and preferences -and, let’s face it, with all those simply divine men around the sensational, throbbing resort of Playa del Ingles and its prettier neighbour of Maspalomas, it’s almost impossible not to have a good time.
