Gay Gran Canaria – Gay Playa del Ingles tourist information

Maspalomas Sand dunes

The Maspalomas Sand dunes are world famous in gay circles. The dunes are a popular cruising and nude sun bathing area check out the bushes,
tree areas and the tops of larger dunes.


The dunes are patrolled by the police, some on quad bikes or jeeps. The police are there to ensure the safety of the tourists, gay or straight, and are very
broad minded. 

Routes through the dunes

Routes through the dunes are marked by wooden poles with coloured bands near the top of the pole to indicate the route you are on. Many of the poles have
black bin liners for your rubbish.

  • Red route
  • Blue route
  • Yellow route

Gay and nudist beaches

Bar Kiosk 7 Gay


The Gay Beach is Roughly mid way between the south east headland point of Maspalomas Dunes and the Maspalomas lighthouse, where the cafe bar kiosk number 7 is located.


The nudist beach is at Number 6 kiosk and the gay beach is
at number 7 kiosk



Nearer towards Playa del Ingles, beyond the headland point is
the Nude beach


he kiosks sell refreshments and both alcholic and non alcholic drinks.

Sun beds and parasols are available to hire.


How to get there

You can join the mass of tourist who walk along the sea edge  from either Playa del Ingles or Maspalomas until you reach the required kiosk.


Most gays will have obtained accommodation near to either the Yumbo centre or the Cita centre, there fore walk down the main drag Avda. de Tirajana that
runs past both centres to the Hotel Riu Palace Maspalomas and go through the large arched entrance, along to the end of
a short lane. From this highish vantage point note the direction of the sea, the Maspalomas lighthouse, the Riu Palace now behind you the hills on your
right. You can use these to help you in finding your direction through the dunes. The main track, the blue route, heading toward the dunes also leads towards
the gay beach located at bar 7.  If its your first trip  you might like to head more to the left to the sea then turn right to you reach the bar
/ cafe number 7.

On your way back from the dunes

Some very popular places to stop for some refreshment

  • Riu Palace Terrace
    Nice spot to watch the the sunset
  • the Cita Centre and the Cafe Wien (In winter) on the upper level

Gay bars, gay pubs and gay nightclubs

The gay nightlife in gay Playa del Ingles starts out much later than in the UK and goes throughout the night to around 5 weekdays and 6am weekends. 


Most gay tourists will either eat in there hotel if on half board, or in one of the gay or straight restaurants if on a self catering holiday
from 8pm onwards.  


The very early drinkers will head to the gay bars and pubs at around 8pm, but most people start around 10.  You will find that each bar,
pub or disco has a time slot when that establishment is popular and busy.  Often this evolves around the “show” time.


The gay bars, gay pubs and gay nightclubs are mainly located in 2 large Commercial Centres and on the main road, Avenida de Tirajana between the
2 shopping centres

  • Yumbo centre
  • Cita centre.

These 2 centres of gay excellence are approximately 10 minute walk apart. Both located to the right side of the main dual carriageway Avda.
de Tirajana
as you walk uphill. You will also find a few gay bars on the left as you walk from Cita to Yumbo


The Yumbo is the more famous of the 2 and has far more gay establishments, but there appeard to be a slow migration of bars etc to the Cita. Rumours
say that this could be due to the rents charged in the Yumbo, and or, that the Yumbo is due for redevelopment, which will mean the closing of sections
of it while this takes place.  This trend now apears to have stopped, probably due to the fact that the Cita centre did not attract the crowds, except
for the late afternoon session at the Wien Cafe


It appears that out of the main winter season the gay scene in the CC Cita is fairly dead.

These 2 centres are only 10 minute walk apart, but if you need an inbetween watering hole then try the:


  • Detox Retox is a beautiful gay bar, modern yet comfortable, where the “in” crowd come to meet friends, nicely

10 Things to Know about Beach in Gran Canaria – Trip-N-Travel

Source: Peter Visser

Located in Atlantic Ocean, Gran Canaria is a part of Canary Islands. It is a beautiful island with plenty of beaches and wildlife even though it is the second most populated island in this archipelago. The beaches are particularly beautiful due to the fact that they are usually very long and sandy with plenty of sand dunes. The green pastures are right behind the beaches and they create a unique contrast.

1. Maspalomas is the most famous beach

Source: Marcus Meissner

Maspalomas is well known among the tourists as the most famous beach on Gran Canaria. It is very long, sandy, and the water is perfect for swimming. Even though there are plenty of visitors here, you will be able to find a secluded spot just for you. Also, there are many lifeguard towers on this beach so you will be able to swim freely.

2. Maspalomas is also a nudist beach

Source: Carlos Suárez Pazos

Due to the fact that Maspalomas is so large, there is also a nudist section right behind the tallest sand dunes that is completely separated from the rest of the beach. So if you are interested in nudism and want to sunbathe without your swimming suit, head out to this part of Maspalomas.

3. Playa del Ingles is right next to Maspalomas

Source: Marco Verch

The second busiest beach on the island is right next to Maspalomas. Playa del Ingles has a water sports section right at the end of the stretch and it also has its own little nudist beach. However, you will still be able to find a spot to place your towel because it is really large and it simply cannot get too crowded.

4. Patalavaca – the southern gem

Source: El Coleccionista de Instantes

Located on the southern part of Gran Canaria, Patalavaca is very popular among Europeans. It is located right next to a promenade so you will have a wide selection of different foods nearby. The beach is very clean and the water is crystal clear. It is perfect for taking photos and relaxing.

5. Gui Gui is remote and gorgeous

Gui Gui might be a bit out of the way but it is surely worth the visit. It is a natural beach and if you want to arrive there by land, you have to hike. However, you can always take a boat from Puerto Rico and sail there. Gui Gui is breathtaking and the nature is absolutely gorgeous.

6. Aguadulce’s sand is one of a kind

The majority of sand on Gran Canaria is volcanic, but Aguadulce’s is quite special. It is very fine and almost golden. Combined with crystal clear water, this beach is mesmerizing. Not to forget that it doesn’t have many visitors on a daily basis so if you are looking for a private spot on the island, Aguadulce is the perfect place for you.

7. Sardina del Norte is for diving

Source: Canary Islands Photos

If you want to dive during your holidays on Gran Canaria, Sardina del Norte should be your choice. The water is beautiful and you will be able to meet other diving enthusiasts. Also, this remote fishing village is fairly unknown so if you want to recharge your batteries in a very relaxed environment, head out to the north side of the island.

8. Puerto Rico beach is among the favorites

Puerto Rico beach gets a lot of traffic on a yearly basis. It is very picturesque and many tourists love spending their days here. The sand is clean and the beach in general is really well kept. Not to forget that the promenade is just a couple of meters away so you will be able to get your snacks and food pretty fast.

9. Taurito resort is worth a visit

Source: David Huang

Taurito beach is located within a resort and therefore it is very private. It is close to the water resort and the beach itself is very enjoyable due to plenty of natural shade it provides to the visitors. Even though it is a part of a resort, it still feels very wild and you will have a feeling that you are somewhere far away from the civilization.

10. Pasito Blanco is for yachts

Source: El Coleccionista de Instantes

Pasito Blanco beach is right next to a marina that is very popular among yacht owners. Those who love sailing around these islands usually stop here. This beach is very accessible and you don’t have to own a yacht to get there. You can simply board a bus and be there in no time. The nature is stunning and the beach is not particularly crowded.

Gran Canaria has so many beautiful beaches so whichever you end up choosing, you will be satisfied. Almost all of them are sandy and there are so many activities you can do out there. All you need to do is head out to Gran Canaria and see the gorgeous nature for yourself.

Have a good trip and travel!
