Best gay honeymoon destinations 2018

We run down our favourite LGBT honeymoon destinations where you can whisk your new husband or wife on the holiday of a lifetime

French Polynesia

It’s probably one of our favourite gay honeymoon destinations. Think Bora Bora. Think mega money, but idyllic overwater bungalows. Same-sex marriage is fully legal in French Polynesia and it’s a truly welcoming destination, ideal for an LGBT honeymoon. Many people wonder if Bora Bora tops a trip to the Maldives. Look no further. We asked “The Maldives or Bora Bora – which is better?“.

Thailand

Gay honeymoon to Thailand

If you’d rather travel a bit on your honeymoon then Thailand is the perfect destination for a gay honeymoon. Start in Bangkok before heading up north to Chiang Mai before relaxing in the island of Lanta.

Though if you’re happy to relax with your own private pool then the clifftop resort of Paresa Phuket would certainly be one of our favourite choices.

Hawaii

Gay honeymoon to Hawaii

The beautiful islands of Hawaii offer the perfect setting to explore – and they are well known for being gay friendly. If you have isolated relaxation in mind should head to the islands of Maui or even better Kauai that offers stunning scenery in the form of rainforests, cliffs, mountains and waterfalls. In Honolulu you’ll find more options in terms of nightlife and bars.

You can also opt to have your gay wedding in Hawaii. We recommend the secluded Poolenalea beach in the island of Wailea to exchange your vows before exploring some of Hawaii’s other gorgeous islands.

South Africa and Mauritius

If you’re heading to South Africa we’d thoroughly recommend enjoying both a safari and a relaxing beach break. Combine the Sabi Sabi Private Game Reserve with Constance le Prince Maurice in Mauritius.

Another option would be to drive the famous Garden Route, starting in Cape Town before heading into the winelands of South Africa before finishing with a safari.

Riviera Maya, Mexico

Mexico’s Riviera Maya is home to paradise beaches and a warm and welcoming environment. Not only is the area one of the best places to host a gay wedding in Mexico, but it’s also an ideal choice for a gay honeymoon.

Our favourite hotels in the area are the Viceroy Riviera Maya and the Zoetry Paraiso De La Bonita.

Lake Como and Lake Garda

Gay honeymoon to Lake Como and Lake Garda

If Europe is on your bucket list, then where better than on the edge of the beautiful Lake Como or Lake Garda.

Not only will you find some of Italy’s finest properties on the banks of the lakes, but you’ll also find some of its most beautiful countryside between them.

Hire a car with your husband or wife and zip through the Lombardy region’s mountains and hills to some stunning properties. Our favourites are Grand Hotel Tremezzo by Lake Como and Grand Hotel a Villa Feltrinelli by Lake Garda although there are many others. We love the region so much we created a sample itinerary especially for those taking a gay honeymoon in Italy.

The Maldives

Gay honeymoon to The Maldives

Whilst on the surface gay travel to the Maldives may not be your first choice for a gay honeymoon, the country is warm and welcoming to tourists in spite of its laws.

The beautiful huts perching on stilts above the ocean floor are only available in a handful of other countries and the laid back and friendly atmosphere of the resorts give you the perfect reason to switch off with your significant other to enjoy the romance and the blue azure waters.

The Caribbean

If you’re looking for a gay honeymoonsin the Caribbean, it is worth noting that it can be another tricky destination in terms of the law, but there are options. If you’re looking for somewhere that is welcoming for gay honeymoons.

In St Lucia, Rendezvous Couples Resort is a beautiful island retreat. The Cotton House on the private island of Mustique is the height of luxury and extremely welcoming to LGBT honeymooners. Curacao and Aruba are also great choices for gay honeymoons.

The Greek Islands
