Beside this, we also want to mention the Semana Santa 2018.
The Semana Santa is an important event in the Spanish travel calendar.

Not a gay event at all in Gran Canaria, but nevertheless during this period the accommodations in the south of the island are nearly fully booked.
Therefore, these dates might be important for your planning as well....

Semana Santa 2018: 25th March - 01st April 2018

Also the begin of the German Carnival (11th November- especially on the Gay Beach in Maspalomas at Kiosk No. 7) is every year a popular highlight in Gran Canaria... And this date now also includes the Winter Pride, which will make the south of Gran Canaria even more crowded.

Book your Holidays in Gran Canaria

As every year, so in 2018, especially during these events, it will be very crowded again in Playa del Ingles and Maspalomas.
And so the most popular Gay Resorts and accommodations around the Yumbo Center will be booked up very early!

Most of the accommodations have already published the prices for 2018 with Gay Maspalomas, so there is nothing against an early booking...
If something is not available online, just contact the team of Gay-Maspalomas - Mostly there is a good solution or alternative...

The team of Gay Maspalomas is looking forward to hearing from you..
