Playa del ingles

Hi, I am thinking about going on holidays with some friends soon and we were looking at Gran Canaria but just have a few questions about PDI.

Are all of the centres close to each other, as in within walking distance?

How safe is it?

We heard Playa del Ingles is a ''gay resort''. Is this true? We have no problem with gay people but none of us are gay and therefore it would be a bit silly for us to go. So basically is it more straight or gay?

Also is playa del ingles suitable for all ages or just the 18-30 group?

Thank you

Playe de Inglis is safer than Cork

There are some gays bars like in most resorts and a small gay comunity but dont worrry about that in the least , it adds up to the colourful atmosphere

It is fairly compact , you will have a great time there It is suitable for all ages

Playa del Ingles caters for all age groups. Yes, quite a lot of gays do go there on holiday and tend to go out in the Yumbo Centre. However, this shouldn't bother anybody at all.

There is no resort centre as such. It is all very spread out, consisting of hotels, aprtments, bungalow complexes and various shopping centres incorporating bars and restaurants.

There are frequent buses and taxis are plentiful and reasonably cheap.

PDI attracts all sorts and ages of human beings . Quite a lot of Straight people do go there but I find that they generally do not bother you as they have their own bars to go to . I would add that I am not straightphobic at all and have met some very nice people who just happen to be that way inclined .
