Welcome to Gay Ibiza
Since the 1960's it has been one of Europe's main summer destinations. Residents have long recognised the popularity of their island with gay men and lesbians from around the world.
The original home of the Balearic beat, famous for its image - loud, brash and utterly outrageous. Whilst the straight holiday hoards head for the "lager lout" resort of San Antonio, gay and lesbian visitors prime destination is the Island's capital - Ibiza Town, a quaint old town with plenty of atmosphere and character.
Originally starting out as an inexpensive artists location, Ibiza has been an extremely popular Gay destination for over twenty years. As time passed, the island has been adopted by gay European trend setters and is becoming more and more attractive with American visitors.
It's still relatively unspoiled and an interesting place to spend a week or two. Many visitors go simply to enjoy the archaeological sites and the two museums, others find great pleasure in visiting the studios and ateliers at Santa Eulailia Del Rio. To the south west of the town centre is the Puig des Molins, a Punic cemetery. The two other major tourist centres are the coastal towns of San Antonio Abad and Santa Eulalia del Río. If you fancy a flutter, the Island has its own Casino. Aside from all this, the major attraction is the very relaxed atmosphere of the island. Residents have long recognised that the popularity of their island with gay men and lesbians from around the world have brought them great recognition and prosperity.
Ibiza Gay Accommodation
The original home of the bouncy Balearic beat, Ibiza is famous for its image - loud, brash, outrageous and undeniably fun.
Whilst the holiday hordes (and hormonally charged teenagers) head for the "fish 'n' chips" resort of San Antonio, gay and lesbian visitors prime destination is the Islands capital - Ibiza Town, a charming old town with plenty of atmosphere and character.
Ibiza Town offers everything from hostels with shared bathrooms, to 4-star hotels, ranging from €14 to €230 per night. Your priority may be quality, the ability to take people back, economy, peace and quiet, or style and location. One priority may negate another, in terms of what is on offer. But note: Ibiza is a long established resort and much of the islands accommodation was built in the 70's.
The resorts we offer in Ibiza: IBIZA TOWN - dominated by the historic, World Heritage site of 'D'alt Vila', Ibiza town has a good selection of trendy gay bars and restaurants and quite a bit of charm. However, the town is a working, built-up area and can be noisy: most tourists looking for a gay holiday stay in the neighbouring suburb of FIGUERETAS, which is a 10 - 15 minute walk away. Developed through the 70's, Figueretas has a pleasant bay with a couple of small beaches, and a handful of gay bars but isn't much to look at! The main gay/nudist/cruising beach at Es Cavallet is several miles away but can be reached by a frequent (if usually packed!) local bus service that runs through Ibiza Town and Figueretas - it's worth making the effort to get to & a car make life a lot easier! The resort is summer only, and is busy from late May to late September - outside of this you may find that some bars/hotels/restaurants are closed.
