Walking through the dunes of Maspalomas is like being on another planet. Untouched sand stretches for miles past the trails. Paths lead to Kiosco Beach 7, the gay beach along the island’s south shore. This was one of the friendliest gay beaches I’ve ever seen, with people of all shapes and sizes and in all sorts of costume having a blast. Strangers run up to each other and make jokes, laughing under the island sun. Everyone was more relaxed and friendly than other prides I’ve been to, making this by far one of my favorites!
