Location is everything, and that’s why Las Palmas de Gran Canaria is such a fabulous beach vacation spot, plus more than just the best in Las Palmas gay bars!

On the north of Gran Canaria, one of Spain’s Canary Islands, Las Palmas has plentiful beaches and, thanks to the region’s warm and dry weather, a year-round beach season! This island paradise draws tourists from around the world for being affordable and fabulous, plus offers more than just the best gay clubs in Las Palmas. If you're visiting in February, join in the Carnival of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria to be part of an international crowd witnessing flamboyant costumes and taking in great live music.

LGBTQ+ nightlife in Las Palmas is usually more laid-back than in Maspalomas on the south of Gran Canaria. Around Calle Doctor Grau Bassas (Doctor Grau Bassas Street), you’ll find oceanside watering holes with live jazz music and outdoor dining near Playa de Las Canteras (Las Canteras Beach) and some of the best gay bars in Las Palmas. Head down to Las Canteras for snorkeling, surfing, or just plain splashing, or to a nearby sauna for a foam party. It’s all good, wet fun!

The historic Vegueta area is a must-visit, showcasing Las Palmas’s neoclassical architecture. The city’s history spans over five hundred years, so there’s lots to admire! Stroll around the square and climb the cathedral at Plaza de Santa Ana, and step into the nearby Museo Canario, a museum with exhibits about Gran Canaria’s Indigenous Guanche people. End your day at one of the many Las Palmas gay bars, events or clubs featured in our index below. Come for the beaches, the fabulous weather and the amazing island experience that Las Palmas offers!
