Gran Canaria is a unique, gay-friendly and an adventurous place to visit. It’s a hot gay destination year round due to the warm climate and Maspalomas is its gay capital.
Drag shows in Gran Canaria are like the residency shows of Las Vegas, with a slightly smaller budget and a lack of celebrity status. Still, they’re a hit and they’re a must. The Yumbo Centre in Maspalomas is the center of the gay nightlife with gay bars, clubs, restaurants and cafes.
Perhaps the best thing you can do to enjoy Gran Canaria is to take a private gay yacht tour to a secluded beach on the southern side of the island with a friendly, charming gay captain. Rainbow Gay Tours offers an all-day trip on the boat, time spent on the beach and provides tapas and quality drinks. There are plenty of gay accommodations in and around Maspalomas but we recommend Paso Chico, which is a great budget option for private bungalows, with a pool right across from all the gay nightlife.
We visited Gran Canaria in June and had the opportunity to shoot some video during the trip. Check out our video to discover why we think Gran Canaria is an awesome destination for LGBT travelers.
