Barcelona offers a wide variety of accommodation options for all budgets. From affordable hostels to luxurious boutique hotels, every visitor can find something that suits their needs. For those who want to be at the center of the action, hotels and apartments in the Eixample district, known as the «Gayxample», are a popular choice due to their proximity to various festival venues.

When booking accommodation, it is advisable to do so well in advance due to the high demand during the festival period. Many hotels even offer special packages for festival attendees, which can include event tickets and transfer services.

Mar Bella Beach

The Mar Bella Beach is usually a must-visit spot for Circuit attendees. It is one of the few nudist beaches in Barcelona. However, it is not mandatory to undress to enjoy this space. Whether you prefer nudism or not, you will feel welcome here. But go early during those days if you want a spot in front of the sea.


Saunas are also very busy spaces during the festival days. Again, we recommend going early to avoid queues. The busiest, because it is in the Gayxample, is the Casanova Sauna. Located at Carrer de Casanova 57, it is one of the most popular places among the gay community in Barcelona. Here you will find a steam sauna, a large jacuzzi, a cruising area, and dark rooms. In addition, it is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, which means you can visit it whenever it suits you best. Visit their website.


The Circuit Festival Barcelona 2023 is more than a festival, it is an experience filled with fun, love, and respect. Whether you come for the parties, the music, the incredible LGBTQ+ community, or simply to enjoy the beautiful city of Barcelona, this festival has something for everyone.

This year, join thousands of people from all over the world in the celebration of diversity, inclusion, and the freedom to be yourself. With its exciting parties, the thrilling Water Park Day, and the opportunity to explore vibrant Barcelona, the Circuit Festival 2023 promises to be an unforgettable event. See you in Barcelona!
