I have just come back from a 3 week holiday in Playa Las Americas and went into this hotel many times to use the swimming pool and bar. It is advertised as a male only gay hotel with rainbow flags outside. Do not take any notice of this as I found that only a few of the guests were gay males.
At Purple Roofs, we list thousands of gay friendly and gay owned accommodations, and yours could be next. If your accommodations welcome the LGBT community, add them here. The Yumbo Centre is made up of gay bars, clubs and shops and forms the base of the gay scene on the island.
Haven't been to the south of the island before and thinking of going in March. Does anyone have advice on the following. I was going to send you links but actually there are quite a number of previous similar threads - if you type gay or nude in the search box at the top of the forum you will see the previous discussions and if you still have questions after that come back and ask for more information.
Welcome to Tenerife Tenerife is the largest of the seven islands that make up the Canary Islands and welcomes over seven million holidaymakers per year to worship the sun on its volcanic beaches. What's more it's a dramatic place with banana plantations, tropical plants and Mount Teide, Spain's highest peak and the world's 3rd largest volcano, towering majestically over the scenery. If you're lucky, it might even be snow capped! Affectionately known as the 'island of eternal spring', Tenerife is home to striking volcanic landscapes and open green countryside.
Such islands would not have become LGBT hotspots were it not for the fact that the people really must indeed be tolerant and friendly, or the European Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender communities would not keep coming back year after year!! The steady stream of LGBT people has led to the emergence of a whole host of venues and events established specifically with the aim of catering for the crowds of LGBT tourists flocking to these islands! Alongside the development of such fantastic venues and fabulous spectacles of events, the rest of the businesses and event organisers have learned to make things more welcoming and LGBT-friendly wherever possible, as to not do so would result in them losing out on good business.
Main Tenerife gay resort is Puerto de la Cruzwhich is on Tenerife's lush northern coast. Puerto de la Cruz is a historic town and still has a good deal of charm and, as there is far more to see and do in the north of the island than the south, leaves you well positioned for exploring the rest of the island. Buses are also available, and the fare is a very reasonable 8 Euros per person each way - during the summer months there are no direct flights from any UK airport to Tenerife North airport.
Villa Maspalmeras. Our aim is for all our guests at Villa Maspalmeras to find The Villa and its accommodation a tranquil and relaxing place for their holiday. Over the last year or so we have made a lot of changes around the apartments, the villa and the gardens including adding a heating system to the pool. If you have not visited us before, the Villa is surrounded by two thousand square meters of mature gardens including the relaxing clothing optional pool area with its now heated swimming pool.

Every self-respecting LGBT traveller knows that Gran Canaria is a hub of gay action, but the Canary Islands have much more to offer holidaymakers in the way of sun, sea, sand and sinking a few martinis before dancing to Cher till 8am. The small island of Fuerteventura has a laid-back vibe and plenty of opportunity to relax. While the nightlife is limited, it caters well to the LGBT crowd and what it lacks in big clubs it makes up for in fantastic weather and stunning beaches.
