A Day in Gay Valencia, Spain

Author: , May 16th, 2013

The sun poured down upon me as I stepped off the jet for my 36 hours non-stop whirlwind tour of Valencia. Now this is the kind of article I like to write. Sun, sea and Spain. I was in Valencia, Spain’s third largest city, for the launch of Ford’s brand new Kuga, but why not kill two birds with one stone, look at the car and marvel at its wondrousness and secondly get some quality time in Spain and write about one of the most gay friendly cities in Spain.

Even though it was the 1st of February the temperature soared above 26 degrees and even the locals admitted it was a bit of a rarity for so early on in the year, however I didn’t mind having only just hours before left the grey, dank and ever so depressing 4.00AM morning of Great Britain.

Almost a second home for us Brits, Spain has it all, great wines, great food and abundance of sunshine and the lesser known destination of Valencia is an incredible jewel on Spain’s eastern seaboard, nestled a few hundred miles below Barcelona. It has it all, azure seas, miles of soft, spongey sands, bustling cafes, shopping, culture and art.

Foodie Heaven in Benidorm, Spain

Benidorm GastronomyLooking for some fun in the son, along with some great cuisine? Check out Pink News’ new review of Benidorm, Spain, a culinary paradise:

Look past the inevitable pizzas and fastfood you find in every resort, and you will see the rich gastronomic variety of the Valencia region, renowned as one of the finest in Spain and it’s easy to see why. There are so many historic influences on the traditional cuisine from the invading Moors and the seafaring spice merchants to the fishing and agricultural heritage of the area. Paella was born here, in all it’s many forms, and the excellent range of local rice dishes form the basis of a number of speciality paellas to tempt the taste buds.

They also have the skinny on a bunch of upcoming culinary events:

The first event in March is a week-long local event promoting the ‘cuchara’ or food you literally eat on spoons, such as soups, stews and rice dishes. Several restaurants in the resort will create special keenly priced menus to showcase regional dishes. This is closely followed in mid April by the Tapas & Pinchos competition which encourages local restaurants and some of the region’s best chefs to create the most imaginative dishes to present to a panel of exacting judges and ends with a festival celebrating the rice dishes of the region in October.
