10 Folegandros Hotels for Gay travellers

Gay Folegandros Guide 2019 | Your ideal destination for romantic gay holidays!

Folegandros is the hidden paradise among the beautiful islands of Cyclades in Greece. A unique small destination that has all in all three tiny villages framing the rugged landscapes. An excellent isle for travellers searching for tranquil vacations on sun-burned beaches.


It would be wrong to compare Folegandros with any other island of Cyclades as it has nothing common with them except the beautiful blue and white colours. The gay scene is not just unorganised, it is non-exist. There are some interesting bars that attract all kind of crowds but none is exclusively gay. This of course does not mean that gay travellers will not have anything to do there.


This beautiful and tranquil island offers the opportunity for gay travellers to experience the most romantic gateway ever. The crystal-clear waters surrounded by unique rock formations create a completely carefree atmosphere and people usually love the sensational experiences they acquire during their time there. The real Mediterranean experience enhanced by serenity-like atmosphere, especially on the small secluded beaches.


Three beautiful villages garnish this small paradise and Chora is the main town. A well-preserved suburb, positioned on the edge of a high cliff, adorned by Cycladic-like churches and old-fashioned tavernas. The view is breathtaking from up there and the feasts organised frequently, are exclusive as they bring together strangers and turn them into life-long friends. One thing will always remain in your memory if you visit this place. The sweet lemon scent that is carried around the peddled streets of these picturesque villages.

Gay Tips

Meeting new people can be very easy while this is an island which is chosen by many gay and lesbian travellers as an alternative and tranquil destination.

Livadaki and Agios Nicolaos beaches are two nudist beaches that are frequented by gay travellers. Though, they are not officially gay beaches, they attract several gay men!

Several gay wedding ceremonies are being celebrated in Folegandros. Even though Greek laws do not allow same-sex weddings, the renewal of vows, as well as same-sex commitment ceremonies, are being performed. 

In such a small community of only 650 inhabitants, there isn't any particular 'gay scene’, but the local restaurants and bars are always full of people having fun and drinking the traditional "rakomelo" (strong raki drink with honey).
