As the largest of the Canary Islands, Tenerife is packed with glorious sandy beaches in all sorts of shades, lush forests and even a dormant volcano.
Known as "Island of Eternal Spring" because it has a gorgeous 25-degree average all year round! Though Tenerife isn't as popular as Gran Canaria it still has fabulous LGBTQ+ friendly locations in the North & South of the Island so you're set for a good time wherever you decide to drop your beach towel! In the north, you'll want to look out for Puerto de la Cruz and in the south, it'll be Playa de las Americas.

A lot of people have heard of Music Hall Tavern (MHT) ruling the canaries for 20 years and even going on tour in the UK! Not only is it somewhere for a superb three-course meal but it's a raunchy night filled with comedy, dancing and signing with these high energy star entertainers.
Babylon Disco Pub is a vastly popular club with a range of entertainment and plenty of different rooms if you're looking for something a bit darker. For a chilled-out terrace overlooking the ocean, head over to the bar with a view and a little bit of Latin Dancing at Agua de Coco.

There are quite a few show venues to choose from, with Tenerife having entertainment as a must! Why not try the cabaret at Anderson Gay Pub & Show Bar or the Galeón Lounge. If you fancy a relaxing spot with gourmet lunch then Vinoteca Con Pasión is a must.
In the late 70s, Spain’s LGBTQ+ community rejoiced as homosexual activity was legalised across the country. All this meant was that they could no longer be sent down for going down after a night out – something they’d been doing since the beginning of time anyway!
Today, Spain is one of the most liberal countries in the world in terms of LGBTQ+ freedoms. In fact, according to a 2013 study by Pew Research Centre, a whopping 88% of Spanish citizens accept homosexuality. Join us in raising a glass to Spain who came out on top (or so to speak) against the 38 other countries who were polled!
