Sassy, cosmopolitan, Gay Ibiza is one of the wildest, most scenic ports in the entire Mediterranean. The floodlighted battlements and colossal walls of the old town (Dalt Vila) provide a startlingly evocative and historic backdrop to the dynamic bar and club scene, with venues spread around a breathtaking bay. In the summer months, Gay Ibiza party action revs into the red, then right off the scale, and at times it seems like all the world’s raving head-cases are rammed into one insane whitewashed little Spanish town. There is a lot for the gay traveler to take in. Our gay and lesbian travel guide is here to help you navigate through the glut of funky places to explore from cave-like drinking dens to the sumptuous splendor of über-clubs. Ibiza’s appeal is immediate and addictive, and exploring the warren of cobbled harbor-side streets, replete with oh-so-hip fashion boutiques and quirky market stalls, on a balmy summer night is one of the essential Ibiza experiences.
Aside from the tide of party people that flow from bar to bar to down a vodka limón or a chupito shot, troops of costumed club-sponsored parades add diversion and fantasy to the Ibizan night. Grab a bar table and expect the unexpected, as near-naked dancers spray painted gold, fluffy pink bunnies, G-string-toting gays, bondage queens, and leather kings flounce through the streets bearing club banners and dispensing promo flyers. And the more ferocious the exhibitionism, the better the response. There can be few other places in the world where locals, gay and lesbian travelers, holidaying families, and party freaks congregate so amiably, simply reinforcing Gay Ibiza uniquely tolerant character as a permissive paradise where the routine is derided and the excessive celebrated.
