Popular cities in Canary Islands

The only thing that lets them down is the view the Yumbo is not the most attractive construction by a long chalk. Like many places on the island things don't start to get going much before 11pm but some do go on right through till daylight.

Las Palmas de Gran Canaria celebra el VI Festival Internacional de Cine Gay y Lésbico

Virtually everywhere has an 'entry free' policy providing, of course, you purchase drinks once inside drink prices and offers can vary quite a bit from one place to the next but none are extortionate. The crowd, tourists and locals alike, are very friendly - if you're a solo traveller as I was on my first trip there you shouldn't end up being a 'Johnny no mates' for long.

A word of warning - some of the dark rooms in the clubs are litterally pitch black not even a glimmer of light and the area is often targetted by pick-pockets. There is a reasonably sized gay swimwear optional section of beach - trek across the dunes and you can't miss it, look out for the rainbow flag. The rest of the island is well worth exploring, particularly the costal areas.

R. Zaragoza - UD Las Palmas MD14 D1830

Inland is somewhat barren and dry but worth a day trip by jeep safari. I found the capital city in the north rather dissapointing and trying to actually locate any of the listed gay bars there proved difficult they don't seem to display the flag in the city. Car hire is cheap and the roads, although twisty and narrow in places, are good and well signposted.

A good, toll free, motorway runs from the north to south of the island, passing the airport. Let me explain where it is. On Fridays, a small stage with live music announces the start of the weekend.

Ha ha ha!! Take note of the following clubs: El Sentido , a club recommended for females.
