The Gay Travel Guide to the Algarve

It’s rare to see the Algarve listed as a top gay-friendly travel destination. The list is usually dominated by the likes of Berlin, Barcelona, Copenhagen, and New York. But just because the Algarve isn’t mentioned, that doesn’t mean the Algarve isn’t a gay-friendly place to visit.

The Algarve is very tolerant of all kinds of travellers, LGBT or otherwise. Although not as cosmopolitan as Porto, the Algarve has its share of gay beaches, bars, clubs, and accommodation. 

Although the statistics aren’t specific to gay travel, it’s worth mentioning that Portugal is a very safe country. As of 2017, the Global Peace Index ranks Portugal as the 3 rd safest country to visit worldwide after Iceland and New Zealand.

Any gay bars in Albufeira?

Going on holiday with 2 straight mates next week. While I’m not a huge scene person I’d like to go to a gay bar at least once while I’m out there. Does anyone know of any, have any information?

I found both those sites through google. While it means there are gay bars in Albufeira it gives very little info.

I’ll ask a few locals on my first couple of days there.

There’s a gay hotel in Albufeira called Thermos Pride. They may have more info for you.

Sorry, can’t spell. It is Thermas Pride. Their website is

Bld211 thank you very much, that link is very helpful.

i am off there with a few stright girlfriends in september, would be really grateful if you cvan let me know your findings if there are any bars etc…

We went to both F + J bar and Dreams Bar, both about a 10 minute walk from the top of the strip on a Tuesday night at just after midnight. F + J bar had no one apart from the staff in it and Dreams Bar had 1 customer.

We went back to Dreams bar at about 2am on Saturday night and there were about 25 people there. There is a 5 Euro entrance charge, but that gets you your first drink. Dreams was pretty strange. They were playing great music and yet no one was dancing, everyone was just standing around chatting. It was the opposite of cruisey, so my straight mates felt OK there. I did get hit on a few times, but as soon as they realised I was English they weren’t interested. (Not sure whether that was because of the language barrier or the Brits abroad reputation!!!) At about 230 the drag acts started, they weren’t particularly good, but still entertaining. They went on for about an hour and finished at about 330am. Once they finished about 22 of the 25 in the place left!!!!! I then found out that like everywhere else in Albufeira they have a 4am curfew 🙁

I never found any gay places that opened after 4am.

The only place I found to go to after 4am was Kiss Club, about a 4 Euro cab ride from the Old and New towns, it stays open till between 730 and 9am. The locals tend to want to be seen rather than dance, but the ground floor dance floor isn’t too bad. 10-15 Euro entrance includes your first drink.

I’m not a sauna person, but there is a gay sauna in Albufeira if that is your thing. If the bars are anything to go by then there’ll be no one in it!!!(Unless everyone from Dreams goes straight there!!!)

Hope you have a good holiday. Despite the lack of any action I had a great holiday.

Gay-friendly accommodation in the Algarve

As mentioned, most people on the Algarve are extremely welcome and this includes hotels and guesthouse owners. However, if you’d like to stay at a gay-owned hotel or guesthouse, or somewhere that has specifically listed themselves as gay-friendly, this list should help you out.

Another option is to stay in an Airbnb (or Wimdu or Housetrip) as these sites encourage you to introduce yourself to the host before making a booking. That way, you can actually get a feel for what the owner is going to be like.

Alternatively again, there’s Mister B&B which is basically Airbnb for gay-owned or gay-friendly accommodation and .

Gay Portugal: A historical perspective

Historically, Portugal has all of the ingredients of a country that is unlikely to be tolerant towards homosexuality: it’s quite conservative, it’s religious, and it lived under dictatorship rule for many years. All of these things are likely to have affected peoples’ views of homosexuality, particularly in the more rural parts of Portugal.

However, like many Western European countries, Portugal is looking forward rather than backward. Portugal decriminalised homosexuality in 1983 and, in 2010, Portugal became the 6 th country in Europe (and the 8th worldwide) to allow same-sex marriage.

That’s actually pretty impressive for a small country like Portugal, and gives you some ideas of their priorities. Normally Portugal lags behind the rest of the world, and it’s never normally one of the first countries to implement something new.

Gays and bisexuals can join the army (since 1999), homophobic acts are a criminal offense (2007), and same-sex adoption is legal (2015).

If you’re looking for somewhere to move to, or retire to, the Algarve should definitely be a consideration. As with most countries, there’s still a lot that needs to be done to help the LGBT cause, but Portugal is a long way ahead of many other countries. Of course, it’s also great for a short trip as well.

Gay bars & clubs on the Algarve

The Algarve doesn’t have anywhere near as many gay bars or nightclubs as Porto, but it does have a few. The majority are centred around AlbufeiraLagos, and Portimão, all of which are within a short drive or taxi ride of each other.

Portugal – The Gay Lesbian Experience

Since the 1990’s, there have been huge advances in gay liberation in Portugal, though the bigger cities of Porto and the more cosmopolitan Algarve region are more accepting than the largely conservative countryside.

The first LGBT campaign organization in Portugal was founded in 1992. 1997 then saw Portugal’s first Pride festival, its first Gay and Lesbian Film Festival and the opening of the first gay and lesbian community center.

Porto and Leiria hold Gay Pride marches but other than these events Portugal’s gay community can keep a low profile.

Although homosexual liaisons were decriminalized in 1945, gay life in otherwise deeply conservative Catholic Portugal was, for most of the twentieth century, not easy. In a radical departure from this state of affairs, in 2004 Portugal became the first country in Europe (and the fourth in the world) to constitutionally prohibit discrimination on the grounds of sexual orientation.

Gay and lesbian couples who have lived together for two years have had the same legal rights and tax status as common law straight couples since 2001. The universal age of consent is 16.

Gay Lisbon

Lisbon has a party reputation as the kind of city that doesn’t really get serious until the early hours of the morning, when everyone really comes out to play. The city’s gay scene is no exception – in fact it leads the way. As with anywhere, the drinking bars tend to start and finish earlier, from about 9 pm to 2 am, than the dance clubs, which tend to get going around 2-3 am and finish in the morning.

A recommended place to start your Lisbon experience is the Associação ILGA Portugal. (See details below)

This is the headquarters of IGLA Portugal and arranges gay events in Lisbon. Having its finger on the city’s gay pulse, it is the idea resource for those setting out, providing contacts or at least pointing you in the right direction for more information.

There is also the Associação Opus Gay on Rua da Ilha Terceira, 36 R/C, and Associação Abraço on Rua da Rosa, 243 1F.

The biggest event of the year is Lesbian & Gay Pride (Arraial Gay e Lesbico) that happens on the saturday nearest June 28. The festivalde Cinema Gay e Lesbico de Lisboa happens during the last two weeks of September.

Lisbon’s thriving gay scene is located mainly in the Bairro Alto area. The Bairro Alto is one of the city’s oldest quarters, and more than retains its roots with the past with its grid of steep narrow cobbled alleys dotted with fado cafes, bars and . Its plethora of restaurants make it the ideal, picturesque, atmospheric area to relax in over a caiphirinha or two while the evening progresses and before the clubs get going.

Gay partying is centered around the palmed, fountained plaza known as Praca do Principe Real. It’s at the northern end of Bairro Alto, just across the big main Rua da Escola Politecnica from the Jardim Botanico (a spectacular botanical garden well worth a visit). Be warned that there is no adequate public transport around this area, so if you’re trying to get to here, take a taxi.

The Bairro Alto is not only bars and clubs. It also had numerous designer boutiques, including those dedicated to the fashion item Portugal is most famous for – shoes.

Continue on to the Chiado area, just across the Rua d. Misericordia that runs east of the Bairro Alto, and a little to the south, for more. The Chiado is still the most stylish of Lisbon’s shopping areas, with its elegant tearooms, even after the devastating fire of 1988.

Lisbon has its gay saunas, but unless you’re particularly into ugliness and tawdriness, the saunas here cannot be said to be recommended.

Of course there’s much more to gay Lisbon than its nightlife. Just south-west of the city, across the Ponta 25 de Abril bridge is the Costa da Caparica in the Almada region: 30 kilometers of beautiful white sandy beaches. If you’re looking for men and sun, head for beach no.19. Beginning life as a nudist beach, it quickly became popular as a gay beach. While straight nudists maintain a presence, it is mainly gay. The last we heard, there is a bar there which also serves food.

There are various ways of getting there. From Lisbon take either the ferry from Belem to Trafaria, or from Cais do SodreCacilhas. Then take a bus to the summer resort town of Costa da Caparica.

A tourist train leaves from Costa da Caparica and runs as far as Fonte da Telha. Take that, and rather than getting off at the official beach 19 stop and missing the bar and cruising area, get off at beach 17, walk down to the beach, turn left and walk about 400 meters.

At the time of writing, the last tourist train back is at 7 pm. Please be aware that this is the only way back. (Fun as it may be during the day, beach 19 is not the safest area to be in after dark.)

9 thoughts on “The Gay Travel Guide to the Algarve”

I am thinking moving to Portugal, still I want to be the nearest possible to Spain, which town is pretty , alive and gay in the Algarve area most near to Spain ? Thank you

Here’s a guide to the Eastern Algarve, which covers the area closest to Spain:

I would recommend looking at Vila Real de Santo António and Tavira. Faro, the main city on the Algarve, is also worth looking at. It’s quite a small city (around 50k population) but pretty and, as a city, it’ll be more alive than most of the small towns.

Closest is Vila Real de Santo Antonio, across the river from Ayamonte, Spain, and near Tavira, Portugal.

I’m selling a farm in Alentejo, an hour and a half from Lisbon International Airport, between 2 dams with fishing and all water sports. All international times coming here for training due the good weather that are 9 months sunny per year. Average temperatures range from 15 winter up to 40 Summer. Is a kind of Top farm &house for investment.

Good afternoon, Could you kindly send me a link with photos to the place you are selling? Im interested in moving to the Algarve. My email: [email protected] Best wishes Rafael

More and more gay are coming in olhão town next to Faro

I am looking to purchase a home in Portugal. Any information you have on other gay friendly towns in Portugal or gay friendly neighborhoods I Lisbon or Portugal? Do you have any insight on a coastal Town called Figueira da Foz? And yes please sign me up for your newsletter

As you can imagine, the cities (e.g. Lisbon and Porto) have the largest gay communities. That’s not to say they’re the only gay-friendly places in Portugal, of course. Overall, Portugal is definitely very gay-friendly.

I don’t know a lot about Figueira da Foz, but hopefully I’ll get to go there and research it sometime soon ?
