Gay Guide Balearic Islands - Ibiza
In summer Ibiza is THE international meeting place, regardless of sexual orientation. From May to September the young and young at heart party here. In any case a colourful mix. Of course gays are very much integrated. The gay scene itself is particularly centred round the picturesque capital, especially in the old town and Figueretes. Here everything is within walking distance. Start the night with a stroll around the almost totally gay Calle de la Mare Deu (C/. de la Virgen), take a seat on the mixed terraces at the foot of the city walls, and move on to one of the mega-discos (which often have either gay bar or have specific gay events going on) or you can go up to the old town (Dalt Vila) for a dance or cruise around the bars. Thereafter cruising is possible at the cliffs with the Figueretes beach below. During the daytime the wonderful beach of Es Cavallet beckons, with cruising in the bushes behind the superb beach. If you're looking for a more peaceful time, you can find cosy guesthouses. Everything is easy to reach by bus and taxi services. Lately there is a direct boat connection between Figueretes and Es Cavallet.
