Gay Gran Canaria Guide


Versión EspañolaNovember 27th. 2015

The main gay scene in Gran Canaria is in the Yumbo Centre in Playa del Inglés, in the south 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 come from the Sahara desert, and is connected with other beach towns including San Agustín and Maspalomas in the touristic centre of the island.

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!
