Benidorm has an extensive gay night life scene. Almost all places are located very close to each other, in only a few streets in the Old Town. Many guys crawl from bar to bar. The majority of guys are from all parts of the UK. Several bars are British owned. Some terrace pubs are already busy from the afternoon with UK guys, but most of gay night life in Benidorm gets started at Spanish times, so late from about 23:00.

Too shy and nervous about going into a bar. Access being 1 and being disabled can put guys off. Bad experience in past back home doesn't help.

There is no need to be nervous here about going into a bar on your own, we have 1000s of members who holiday here on their own and quite a few have mobility issues. Most bars have disabled access and there will always be someone around that I am sure will be happy to help. You will find Benidorm a very friendly place where the only time you will be on your own is if you want to be.
