Year-round temperate weather. Gorgeous scenery. A thriving LGBTI scene. Let’s face it: going gay in Gran Canaria is a rite of passage.
More specifically, it’s the buzzing town of Maspalomas you want to head for, with its slew of queer venues but still petite population of 36,000.
The town also boasts the world-famous, 5.5km-long Playa de Maspalomas [above], and the sprawling gay dunes therein (head to the beach bar known to regulars as El Siete to mix with handsome locals).
But before you air out your swimming costumes, you need to think accommodation – so we’ve teamed up with On the Beach to bring you this guide to the best hotels near those dreamy dunes…
