To generalize, the clubs in the south are a mecca for the tourists staying there whilst the northern clubbing scene attracts the locals. Yet there are Canarians who live in the south and expats like myself based in the north. So it’s not as clear-cut as all that. The two main clubbing areas in the south are the Yumbo (Avenída de EEUU 54; 928 76 41 96; www.cc-yumbo.com) and the Kasbah (Calle de Málaga S/N; 928 77 63 99). By day, the Yumbo is a run-of-the-mill shopping centre catering for the needs of families holidaying nearby; by night, it’s transformed into a Sodom and Gomorrah of writhing gay men, wriggling their bits to the hits in a panoply of bars. By day, the Kasbah looks like a mini-Coventry; by night, it’s much the same.

That's the end of the free preview ...
