Alicante Spain Gay Travel Tips
An important part of the intense Alicante club’s atmosphere is a thriving Alicante gay and lesbian nightlife. In this page, we offer you a short Alicante gay travel guide.
There are a lot of coffee bars, night pubs, dance bars, and discos visited both by the gay and lesbian community and other friendly people. During the day, for fun in the sunshine, there are kilometers-long Alicante beaches.
You can start socializing already in the afternoon (coming back directly from one of the Alicante beaches) or early in the evening. In that case, visit one of the coffee bars, where you can take a drink, have a snack and read the newspaper and gay reviews.
Recommended bars: Pikadura, Manhattan
After midnight, you can go to several nightclubs. Each one is full of people, especially during the weekends, offering diverse ambient. You can take a drink, have a good time for half an hour and then go to another one – all of them are just a walking distance away from each other.
Once the bars in El Barrio are closed (between 03:30 and 04:00), young people continue partying in numerous Alicante discos. One of them is the usual choice of gays and lesbians, situated close to the Explanada promenade. There you can dance, drink and have fun until sunrise.
Relax and enjoy numerous Spa facilities in gay saunas of Alicante, Benidorm, and Elche. Most visitors come on Fridays and Saturdays.
During the hot and sunny days of Alicante summer, the best places where you can get to know new people are the numerous Alicante beaches. The most popular among gays and lesbians are Alicante nudist beaches: Urbanova and Cabo de las Huertas.
Outside of the city, Urbanova nudist beach is never too crowded. It offers kilometers of sand and a fantastic view of the city and its harbor.
