Survey: Corfu ‘Overshadows’ Mykonos as Gay-friendly Beach Destination

The Greek island of Corfu was placed third in a ranking aimed at identifying Europe’s most gay-friendly beach destinations.

According to a survey by UK holiday experts On the Beach, the Spanish island of Ibiza, with 18% of the vote, is Europe’s most LGBT-friendly beach destination. Costa Del Sol (10% of the vote), Corfu (9%) and Costa Brava (8%) follow.

The results follow a survey of more than 1,000 British lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender travellers by On the Beach.

The survey also found that 64 percent of LGBT travellers would travel to a non-friendly resort or destination.

Moreover, the survey also found that many people within the gay community are unaware of the various Pride events that take place all across Europe each year.

“Our survey shows that many people are unaware of the numerous Pride events held each year around Europe, so our message is do your research and enjoy all these fabulous destinations have to offer”, said Alistair Daly, Chief Marketing Officer at On the Beach.
