Málaga, Spain, is the largest city along the famed Costa del Sol, a popular stretch of beaches on the country’s coast that is a favorite among LGBTQ+ travelers. With more than 300 days of sunshine, the region attracts a diverse community and is one of the most welcoming in Spain. Málaga is no exception.
The beautiful coastal city is more of a transport hub than relaxing destination, and serves as the starting point for visitors. The nearby town of Torremolinos is the true gay getaway along the Costa del Sol, and only 20 minutes away by car. There, you’ll find the gay village near El Gato beach that boasts dozens of gay bars, including Aqua and EDEN. When visiting Málaga you’ll likely want to stay in Torremolinos at Hotel Ritual, one of Europe’s largest LGBTQ+-focused hotels at 189 rooms.
Within Málaga itself you’ll find Theatro Club Málaga and Calle de Bruselas boast the largest gay clientele, though they’re not particularly large. La Comedia is newer on the scene, and showcases incredible drag shows and events.
When you’re not busy enjoying the nightlife, Málaga offers some truly wonderful sights. The Málaga Cathedral and the Roman Theater are two of the oldest structures in town, and a must for any fans of Spanish history. There’s also the Museo Picaso, which features more than 233 of the famous painter’s works.
With its diverse population and vibrant atmosphere, Málaga is certainly one of the best destinations for LGBTQ+ travelers looking for a sexy, sun-filled getaway in Spain.
