Gay Maspalomas is Europe’s best spot for a gay winter break. Guaranteed to be hot, because of its southerly location. The party goes on all year round!
The Gay scene is in the Yumbo Centre in Maspalomas, in the south of the island of Gran Canaria. A shopping arcade by day, it turns into a gay arena by night. There is a beach made of tall sand dunes that ‘broke off’ from the Sahara desert, and is connected with other beach towns including San Agustín.
Thanks to its location off the coast of Africa, Gran Canaria makes a perfect winter holiday spot, as well as summer, with everywhere staying open year round. In fact, they have one of the only, if not only, Winter Gay Pride celebrations in the world!
