Alicante: Gay and Lesbian
Capital of the Costa Blanca
Alicante is ideal for a gay and lesbian holiday with the city home to a friendly and thriving gay and lesbian culture. There are plenty of bars, hotels and also a private beach for gays and lesbians. La Marina, a gay nudist beach which offers a refreshing alternative even to the other gay beaches in Spain, is a 20 minute drive from Alicante, and hosts gay and lesbian party days.
After a day of watersports or relaxing on the beach, Alicante’s gay scene is very much alive at night, with a selection of bars and clubs to choose from. El Forat, the oldest gay bar on Plaza Santisima Santa Faz is the most popular, featuring eclectic decoration and a bohemian atmosphere, and Alicante gay and very popular Missing club on Calle Gravina mixes the friendly atmosphere of a pub and the booming energy of a nightclub.
