Playa del Ingles
Playa del Ingles is one of the most popular gay destinations in Europe. Why? Because the sun is shining mostly all year round, the dunes are more crowded than a shopping street at Saturday afternoon and the Yumbo Center offers you more gay fun per square meter than any big city!

Gran Canaria gay guide
This is the guide for Playa des Ingles / Maspalomas on Gran Canaria by Nighttours. This island in the Atlantic Ocean is very popular with European gay tourists for its sunny climate, especially during our cold winters. Gran Canaria has beautiful gay beaches and a vibrant and concentrated gay night life.
The main gay beach can be found between Maspalomas and Playa del Ingles. Here is where the boys (and slightly older gentlemen) lay down in the sun, hand around at the bar or swim in the ocean. Also check out the Maspalomas dunes, a huge gay cruising area behind the gay beach.Gran Canaria gay guide
