Cruising in Gran Canaria the best places
During the day, almost all cruising is done on the beach, in the Maspalomas dunes or by the pools of one of the gay-only complexes.
Plenty of cruising
The main gay beach is the gay beach with bar number 7, to get there is to walk from the main street in Playa del Ingles “Avenida Tirajana”.
There you will see a “Riu Hotel” with an archway through which you can walk from the street to reach the beginning of the dunes.
Follow the main stream of people to get to the gay beach or go a bit to the right towards the bushes for some more serious cruising.
Maspalomas Gay Beach
Cruise anytime between sunrise and sunset – be careful not to get stuck there in the dark. The dunes are a 404-hectare area of the municipality of San Bartolomé de Tirajana and have been protected as a nature reserve since 1987. They were formed by sand from the bottom of the ocean, during the last ice age, when the wind blew the sand towards the coast of the island.
There is a nice atmosphere and a lot of nice guys to meet in the dunes.
These are the gay areas, but during the week and weekends you can usually do some cruising or just walk on the beach.
Straight people also cruise here, but do so more in the area between the nudist beach and Meloneras
The cruise walking area in the dunes of Maspalomas is a big, very big area and it is impossible to define it here.
But the main area to go cruising is in the area with lots of bushes and shrubs.
The best way to find it is to walk under the arch of RIU Palace Maspalomas in Playa Del Ingles and go into the dunes and turn a little right.
Just follow the paths where everyone is walking it is always busy.
You can also start at the Gay Beach and walk to the dunes!
Then it is not difficult to find the main area.
Update: The dunes are already more secluded and less accessible. The cruise area has moved a bit to the entrance of the camel tour through the dunes.
NB. Please note that the dunes are home to wildlife, including a native lizard breed that will choke on plastic and rubber discards, so bring your trash back, thanks!
Have fun and do everything safely.
Close to the famous dunes
If you want something more subtle and relaxed, another option if you have a hire car is to head for one of the more secluded natural beaches on the coast between Meloneras and Arguineguin.
At the gay only hotels
Another option is to go to one of the gay-only holiday complexes and spend an hour or three by the pool and facilities.
It doesn’t matter if you’re not staying there, as everyone will welcome visitors if you spend a few euros at the pool bar, you’ll have an afternoon of fun you’ll never forget!
