We have travelled extensively in Spain. We love the beautiful towns you find all along the coast and best of all, we have found every single one to be very open and gay friendly, including the very trendy Marbella.
Marbellas old town is beautiful with Plaza de los Naranjas (square of the oranges) and its surrounding streets being a particularly picturesque and quaint area to explore.
To the west of the town along what is known as the golden mile of sandy beaches, you will find Puerto Banus filled with posh clubs and expensive yachts – a posers paradise.
When it comes to a gay scene in Marbella, it has a very small one. We visited with friends a few years ago and managed to find two gay bars in Marbella, one called Mikonos and one called Fenix.
These were both very small and packed to the brim with people. Part of the attraction of only having two gay bars meant that it felt like the whole gay population of Marbella was in one place giving it a very friendly atmosphere.
We had a lot of fun that night and got home at 8am…
