Ibiza has always been characterized as a place barrier-free, tolerant and open-minded. Already in the late 60 and early 70 years the hippies installed on the island known as "free love" and from the 80 the LGTB collectives forged an unbreakable link here.
Currently, Ibiza figure among the favorite destinations by gay people worldwide, not only because we are one of the largest representatives of the famous slogan "live and let live", but because over time has been expanding its offer and targeting the gay group.
Ibiza Gay Pride
Ibiza Gay Pride is the celebration of Pride in style on our island. A week full of performances, exhibitions, concerts, parties and vindication that each year features celebrities representing this field.
At 2015 the island winked at this segment with the organization of the first Ibiza Gay Pride, held in the port area and on several beaches and clubs at the same time. Thus, he was trying to regain a market that had gradually slowed down on the island. Among the events that were carried out it was possible to enjoy exhibitions of photography, musical performances, talks or a protest march for the rights of the LGTB community.
Beaches and coves with gay atmosphere
It's Cavallet has become the beach with the best gay atmosphere on the island. The air of freedom you breathe in it is unmatched. Lots of couples fill their crystalline waters every year and the tables of the Chiringay, the most popular chiringuito among this public.
Neighborhoods of gay Ibiza
Without place to doubts the street of the Virgin, in the neighborhood of the Marina, is the gay area par excellence. There are many clothing stores, erotic shops, restaurants, pubs or discos oriented to the gay community. The atmosphere of this street in summer is most festive and respectful.
You can not skip your step through bars like Angelo's (in the port), Dome or Lola's.
Figueretas is also a neighborhood that has been able to adapt perfectly to this type of tourism. Along its beautiful promenade you will find gay friendly bars and hotels with a modern and caring style. Go for the bar Chaos, Magnus Ibiza or the hotel apartments Cenit They will treat you to luxury!
Likewise, San Antonio has its bars and hotels destined to these tourists. Simply by taking a stroll through its streets you will find them but, to name a few, The Purple Hostel has become a reference for them.
Of course, the LGTB community has always had a major influence on Ibiza and, therefore, in its parties, making some of them the best known nationally and internationally.
How not to mention the famous festivities the Troy or Matinée (the latter now defunct) that, originally conceived for a gay audience, have pierced any sexual barriers entertaining millions of people around the world.
These are just some of the most recommended places for this upward tourism that Ibiza is proud of and sees grow year after year.
