About Gay Barcelona
Gay Barcelona - Travel Gay GuideRead more about Gay Barcelona
Barcelona is home to one of the biggest and best gay scenes in the world. Most of Barcelona’s gay bars are spread out across the Eixample district – also known as the “Gaixample” district. You’ll find intimate, classy gay bars, hedonistic nightclubs, and action-packed cruise clubs. Barcelona also boasts year-round sunshine and a long strip of beaches along the coastline. Not least the gay-popular beaches, including Nova Icaria, San Sebastià & Barceloneta, and the Mar Bella nudist beach. You’ll see some of the most beautiful people on earth going about their business during peak season.
Sitges is Europe’s gayest town and it’s just up the road from Barcelona. Combining Barcelona and Sitges is one of the most popular twin-center itineraries for gay travelers. Sea, sun, amazing food, and endless eye candy. This really is one of the most charming parts of the world to explore. Barcelona is also packed with cultural landmarks, ranging from Gaudi’s great buildings to the Museum of Erotic Art.
