Thousands of tourists from London, Manchester and rest of UK have traveled to Ibiza for decades , the most beautiful islands in Europe for gay tourist, between July and August. Here offers many fantastic local gay clubs, boasts the White Isle- the most scenic beaches, fabulous hotels and destination restaurants in the Med. You can't find anywhere in Europe having such serene energy inside a holidaymaker, raving and behaving like Ibiza. And especially, 2011 promises to be great year to soak it up for all gay travellers.
Here is my guide of the best gay places to stay when you are down there-
Pacha Hotel- here is a fair warning- if you are escaping to Ibiza to catch up some kip, the hotel brought to you by the folks behind biggest gay club brand in the world may not be the choice for you. If, like me, you are here to party- this is the place to go. It is minimalist in décor and rather swish. Plus there is a great restaurant and wellness spa there worn out clubbers can get the effects of last night rubbed away. Book one of the penthouse suites if you would like to have a room with a Jacuzzi and bubbles.
Aparthotel Navila- For those your you who are credit crunched out, yet still looking for a piece of Balearic action next summer this place is a safe bet. Nestled in a quiet street in the beautiful Ibiza Town, the location could not be more perfect than this- a wonderful combination of island life and urban settings. The rooms are bit basic though, but lets face it you won't be spending much time in bed anyways. There is also a pool on the roof with views across the med and further two terraces where nude sunbathing is actually permitted.
Quilibra Augas De Ibiza- Brand new this year, located in Santa Eulalia del Riu, 15 minutes from the airport. The place has 36 rooms and 76 suites (!), and they come with the sea views! Wow! Now that is a place for a gay traveler. The hotel has even three indoor swimming pools with sub aquatic sound systems (whatever those are) and a beauty spa.
There are tons of other places you should research as well- Ibiza offers you pretty much everything from gay hostels to classy 5 star accommodation. Whatever you choose. Make sure you will take your sun block with you though - there is one thing no gay guy will forgive you - a bad tan.
