Our board options are fit for every budget too, with a selection of options available whether you want to splash out, or make a saving.

Barcelona

Warm climates, cultural offerings, delicious tapas, artistic neighbourhoods, plus a well-established (and super friendly) LGBT community, makes Barcelona a perfect destination to spend your holidays. Being a cosmopolitan city, Barcelona hosts a medley of year-round pride events, so you can plan your visits accordingly if partying is a priority. Better still, if you want the best of both worlds Barcelona mixes its contemporary squares with a gorgeous coastline – so you can flit between the beach, bars and baroque architecture as often as you please. Less than an hour from the city you’ll find Mainland Spain’s number one gay destination, Sitges. Loved for it’s vibrant town, this cosmopolitan resort can be described as Barcelona’s little sister, with rich historical architecture and a wild nightlife scene – particularly in the Old Town of Carrer de Joan Tarrida, an LGBT hotspot.

Ibiza

Famous for its larger than life nightlife scene, Ibiza is known as the party capital of the Mediterranean and one of the hottest places to visit for LGBT friendly holidays. The LGBT scene is well established on this balmy Balearic Island, with enough beaches, bars and hotels to keep guests entertained day in, day out. Gay Pride Ibiza is one of the resort’s highlights during the summer season, featuring one week of colourful events, shows and parades occupying the island’s sun-kissed squares.

Mexico

While there are 9 gay friendly destinations in Mexico, Cancun is by far our favourite. You’ll step out of your beachfront hotel onto miles of soft, white sand, lapped by turquoise sea along this stretch of Caribbean coastline. When you’re not admiring the ancient ruins, in-land forests and sizzling cities, you’ve got an eclectic nightlife scene boasting a medley of top gay clubs and bars (not to mention must-visit Gay Pride events), plus tasty local restaurants including La Parrilla and La Joya to indulge in.

Mykonos

Mykonos is one of the most stylish Greek Islands to see, and be seen on. A hotspot for gay tourists, the tiny resort’s lively beach clubs, restaurants and bars are a mecca for those after laid-back days and upbeat nights. The beaches along the southern tip are most popular, with Elia beach and Super Paradise Beach hosting some of the isles best beach parties, while Lia and Agrari beach offer a more chilled vibe. Jackie O’, Babylon and Porta Bar are renowned for being some of Mykonos’ best gay clubs, a popular pastime during the summer months.

 

 
LGBT Weekend Breaks

 

Want to whisk your partner away for a spontaneous weekend break? You don’t have to venture too far to impress with our line-up of cheap holiday deals, featuring a variety of holiday destinations that won’t break the bank. If gay friendly cities are what you’re seeking, we’ve got favourites including Barcelona, Ibiza and Mykonos on offer, or indulge in luxury holidays when you go all inclusive, instead.

Malta

Over the years, Malta has seen a positive shift towards becoming the thriving LGBT community it is today. The quaint island country has moved up the ranks to claim the number one spot in 2016 in the ILGA-Europe Rainbow Europe Index – so we’re sure it’s a good choice for gay friendly holidays in the sunshine! Hit the beach, explore the harbour and relax in waterfront bars that dot the UNESCO-listed town.

Gran Canaria

Gran Canaria with its warm, sunny and salubrious climate draws gay tourists for its fabulous sand, sea, and not to forget, sizzling party hotspots. The resort's top draws include the famous beaches of Maspalomas and Playa del Inglés, nestled close to the famous Natural Sand Dunes in South Gran Canaria. These two, in addition to the exciting capital of Las Palmas, form the buzzing party triangle of the island. Sip a sangria or indulge in local tapas in one of the beachside terrace bars, before heading into the Yumbo Shopping Centre at the Playa del Inglés, for more entertainment. If you’re staying in Las Palmas, the action revolves around the districts of Santa Catalina Park, Vegueta and the Triana St. Comercial area. While in Ingles, you’ll discover the annual Canary Gay Pride Day, an LGBTQ extravaganza which sees a hundreds of tourists flocking from Europe and beyond.

Benidorm

The busting city of Benidorm is home to one of the first gay bars, which opened in the 1970s. The old town is the epicentre of the gay community and you’ll find over 30 gay bars and clubs dotted across the town. While the summer season is hottest, September is a great time to visit Costa Blanca thanks to its pleasant temperatures and Benidorm’s annual Gay Pride festival, hosted on Levante Beach.

Europe has some of the best beaches in the world and, lucky for us, they can be reached after just a short flight from London. Spain takes the lead when it comes to the best gay friendly beaches in Europe, closely followed by Greece and Portugal. If you’re dreaming of secluded coves, golden sands and inviting waves, we’ve got quite the coastline for you…

Skiathos

Skiathos is a lesser-known Greek Island with a youth-driven nightlife scene. This small island is an up-and-coming destination for gay friendly holidays in Greece, and boasts over 50 spectacular beaches for laid-back days and lively nights. The Little Banana and Big Banana beaches are the two most popular beaches here. Don’t forget to check out De Facto Bar too, the island’s popular bar.

Crete

Greece’s largest island, Crete is filled with fantastic fine-sand beaches that make up a whopping 650-miles of coastline. Many of the resort’s beaches are backed by gorgeous cosmopolitan towns, including popular Agios Nikolaos and Elounda, so you can flit between the sand and the vibrant town squares effortlessly. Heraklion, Chania, Agios Nikolaos and Malia are among the top resorts for gay visitors to Crete.

Ibiza

This pretty island has some of the most famous beach clubs in the world. The fabulous Es Cavallet beach, while being a nudist beach, also has an active gay scene. The beach is usually buzzing with people during July and August, while the remaining months see fewer tourists.

FAQs

Are There Any Particular Destinations Same-Sex Couples Should Research Before Visiting?

It’s important for our customers to be fully informed on the different LGBT laws, regulations and penalties in destinations around the world, to ensure they experience a safe and happy holiday. LGBT travel laws are ever changing, and there is no specific list of destinations where same-sex relationships are illegal, therefore we advise customers concerned about their destination choice to visit www.gov.uk/foreign-travel-advice or the FCO with their new travel aware campaign for more up to date information.

Is It Safe for Gay Couples to Travel to Dubai or UAE?

Dubai is relatively safe for gay couples to travel to as long as they follow UAE laws and customs – which are very different than those in the UK. Visitors must be aware of their actions in order to not offend locals (especially in religious areas and during the holy month of Ramadan), meaning they must not openly show public displays of affection. Dubai has strict rules and policies surrounding drugs, alcohol, offensive behaviour, relationships outside of marriage and same-sex relationships – so there could be serious penalties for doing something that may not be illegal in the UK. For more information, visit www.gov.uk/guidance/lesbian-gay-bisexual-and-transgender-foreign-travel-advice.
