Santorini Gay Guide

A guide to help you find the best hotels & places in Santorini for Gay travellers


Gay Santorini Travel Guide 2020 | The Most Romantic Greek Island in the World!

Gay Santorini is not about partying or clubbing, Gay Santorini is about watching the sunset, and more particularly, Gay Santorini is about falling in love. Santorini is one of the most popular destinations worldwide for romantic holidays and honeymoons. It's equally beloved by gay & straight couples, while the LGBT Acceptance on the island is at very high levels. It is not recommended for single gay travelers, especially if you want to meet other gay men!

Santorini's high season is from late June to late August, and the island is literally packed with travelers this period of the year. The best time to visit Santorini is not during its high season. The best time to visit Santorini is from April to early June when the island is less crowded, the sun is shining, and the hotel prices have not reached the maximum yet. On the other hand, the beaches are still cold during that period!

Gay Honeymoons and Romantic Gay Holidays in Santorini are like a dream coming true. Santorini has so many romantic things to do, while its whole setting gets you into the mood for romance. Even though gay marriage is not recognized in Greece yet, many couples arrange a ceremony or their wedding's photo-shooting on this stunning island. Watching the sunset is by far the most beloved activity on the island!

There is not a gay scene in Santorini but you should not be discouraged. In general, the island is not a good clubbing or partying destination, however, the bars of Santorini, which are mainly located in the Chora, are gay-friendly. Some of the most popular gay-friendly bars around Santorini are Tropical Bar, Murphy's Music Bar, Theros, and Crystal Cocktail Bar!

Even though Santorini is not much known for its gay beaches, there is actually a gay beach located at the southern side of Santorini, called Vlychada Beach. It's currently the hottest and most popular “gay” beach on the island, only followed byKoloumbos and Exomitis Beaches, which are also known for their gay-friendly attitude!
