You’re going to love Puglia. Our salty hot summer and the salty hot Italian men, glistening and dripping in their skimpy speedos (the default beachwear of choice) are guaranteed to make you thirsty.
A long-time favourite of the Italian gay population, Puglia draws a sophisticated international gay crowd all summer long. And it’s a very long summer...
Year on year, Puglia’s reputation as a gay holiday hotspot grows.
Salento remains the focus for gay travellers. The beautiful and the “gifted” are found hanging out on the beaches around Gallipoli and nearby Baia Verde.
Gay beaches and nudist beaches are found all around our coast, but for the most popular away from Gallipoli head to Spiaggia d’Ayala (our favourite) and Torre Guaceto.
