Take a Trip to Paradise at Sardinia Bear Weekend

Do you like gorgeous men? Island life? Mediterranean cuisine? Then Sardinia Bear Weekend might be for you!

Sardinia, or in Italian ‘Sardegna’, is a beautiful island located in the Mediterranean Sea, west of mainland Italy and south of Corsica. Featuring over 1,100 miles of exquisite coastline, it is renowned for its breathtaking beaches, turquoise seascapes and fascinating rock formations. The cuisine offers a rich array of dishes heavily influenced by its surroundings which combine to create something uniquely Sardinian. All this AND bears?! Sign us up!

Taking place in the capital city of Cagliari from July 27th through 30th, Sardinia Bear Weekend combines hot guys with walking tours, drag shows, and (nude) beach parties to create a magical, relaxing and sexy experience. Check out their schedule of events below:

Schedule of Events

Mister Bear Sardegna®

The last day of the event will see the election of the new Mister Bear Sardegna®, a title created in 2019 from an idea by Andrea Ledda of the Urtzos / Sardinian Bears.

The competition aims to celebrate “Unconventional Bearty” (Bear + Beauty), or bearish beauty. It is a celebration of body positivity, one of the founding ideals of the Sardinian Urtzos. Since 2022, the competition has been referred to as the Mister Bear Sardegna Friendly competition in order to promote the Sardinian tourism board’s commitment to diversity and inclusivity.

If you are a Bear, Big Bear, Musclebear, Daddy, Otter, Cub, Fan or Chaser, have Sardinia in your heart and want to represent the Bear island community, you are encouraged to sign up for the competition. Click here for more details.
