In terms of gay destinations in Europe, Gran Canaria has long been a popular spot for gay and lesbian travelers. With its dreamy weather, sand dunes, popular gay beaches, and gay bars and clubs, it’s little wonder LGBTQ travelers flock to this island paradise in numbers in each year. Gran Canaria is hands down the most gay island of the Canary Islands' family, with the majority of LGBTQ life happening in Maspalomas. Maspalomas is renowned for its gay sand dunes where you can enjoy 24/7 cruising, along with its main gay beach which you’ll find at Kiosk 7. Additionally, Maspalomas is home to a number of gay resorts where you’ll feel right at home. Enjoy all the usual staples of a gay resort such as a swimming pool, a bar and restaurant, a gym, happy hour, complimentary breakfast, and gorgeous bungalows to unwind in. Many resorts are gay-male-only, meaning you can also mingle with other gay travelers and make some new friends during your island vacation.
If location is key when it comes to choosing a gay resort in Maspalomas, you should lock in a stay at Villas Blancas. This gay male-only resort is the largest of its kind on the island of Gran Canaria, and continues to be a hot destination for gay male travelers each year. Villas Blancas is perfectly positioned in between the popular sand dunes, Kiosk 7, and Yumbo Center. But once you experience all the wonderful amenities offered at Villas Blancas, it’s likely you may not even want to leave. While Villas Blancas has been in operation for more than 20 years, the villas have recently been refurbished to meet the standards of the modern day traveler. Depending on how many people you are travelling with, you have the option of booking either a studio, a one-bedroom villa, or the two or three-bedroom villas. Beyond the villas, enjoy various on-site facilities, including two outdoor pools, a Jacuzzi, a sauna, and a bar and restaurant which serves delectable local cuisine. On top of all of this, Villas Blancas is renowned for being an open and friendly gay resort, so you’ll be making new friends here in no time.
