When asking a European gay guy where he will spend his next vacation, the answer is likely to be Gran Canaria. The nude and gay beach section between Playa del Ingles and the lighthouse at Maspalomas is world famous. The much calmer beach at Playa Montana Arena is close by and a great alternative to the somewhat seedy Maspalomas beaches.
