Gay Guide Benidorm
Benidorm is the jewel of the Costa Blanca, and is renowned for its wonderful Poniente beach, designated even by the UN as one of the seven most beautiful beaches in the world. The gay scene is concentrated in the old town between the two big beaches. A year round warm climate, which is reflected in a year round varied gay scene, as well as a wide range of leisure activities, for example the theme park "Terra Mitica", make Benidorm an appealing travel destination. You can enjoy yourself on the wonderful sandy beach, in the intimate gay bay, in the comfortable bars or leather bars, the drag shows, or just having coffee and cake in a café. According to people who have visited them, many of the bars identified in local publications as "gay-owned" are actually mixed places. For places to stay there is a range of possibilities for gay accommodation, from a basic but central hostel right in the middle of the gay scene to a peaceful guesthouse near the town. And if you are looking for the real Spain you'll find picturesque villages just a few miles inland.
