Portugal Gay Grand Tour Itinerary

Day 1 - Welcome to Lisbon, Portugal
Gay Lisbon• Arrival transfer from airport to your hotel.
• Accommodation and free time for shopping and dinner.
• Overnight at your hotel.

'Steamy Hot' is the best way to characterize the gay life in Lisbon. Lisbon is definitely not the first city to think of when searching for where to spend your next gay vacations, with London, Paris, and Madrid on the map overshadowing it. However, when we are talking about gay cruising or underground gay scene, well Lisbon does it best.

The gay scene of Lisbon is extensive, and a huge part of it is "underground". The nightlife of Lisbon is concentrated on the Bairro Alto area, including the gay street Rua Barroca where you will find the most popular gay bars in Lisbon. Principle Real is another great area with gay bars and clubs, while Alfama, the oldest part of Lisbon, has some excellent traditional entertainment options as well.

There are a couple of gay beaches near Lisbon, which are a must-visit during summer months. Beach 19 at Costa da Caparica is the most popular one, where thousands of gay men visit it every summer. Many of the men are actually naked, while there is a lot of action taking place in the bushes. Costa da Caparica is the least popular gay beach, and the southern you go, the fewer people you will meet. A great place to spend your afternoon!
