French Polynesia is one of our favorite honeymoon destinations for lesbian couples. It’s one of the only places in the world where it’s never been illegal to be LGBTQ+, which gives it a unique edge when it comes to planning your lesbian honeymoon. And with paradise islands like Bora Bora and Tahiti to explore, you’ll want to come back again and again. Choosing between Bora Bora and the Maldives? Then don’t hesitate to read our editorial where we ask “The Maldives or Bora Bora – which is better?“. Both have the famous overwater bungalows that offer such a rare experience, and attract honeymooners in search of a uniquely romantic stay. You can also stay in one of the luxurious resorts that are scattered along the stunning coastlines here, that each offer unmatched views, incredible facilities and a level of service that’s rare to find.
Stays on the island of Bora Bora are endlessly romantic. Adventurous couples can embark on hiking trails through the lush jungle terrain or up Mount Otemanu, or try their hand at snorkeling, scuba diving or surfing. If you want to relax, head to one of the breathtaking beaches lined with palm trees to sip cocktails in the sunshine, or enjoy a sunset boat ride and catch marine life playing in the water.
Lesbian honeymooners can also head to Tahiti on a romantic getaway. This island of French Polynesia is steeped in history and culture – it’s easy to find traditional music and dance here, as it’s an integral element of French Polynesian culture. You’ll also find plenty of hiking trails here, with varying levels of difficult meaning you can join in whether you’re a complete novice or an experienced expert.

Of course, we can’t complete our list of the best lesbian honeymoon destinations without mentioning to the glorious Greek Islands. As well as the obvious choices of Mykonos and Santorini, the smaller islands of Naxos, Paros, Skiathos and Skopelos should be on your list too.
It may be seen as a cliché, but we also love recommending Lesbos to lesbian couples looking to honor their nuptials with a Grecian getaway. This Greek island is the birthplace of the term ‘lesbian’ – and it’s the island where Sappho was born. She was an ancient Greek woman who wrote poems about her love for other women, which makes this such a fitting location to go and celebrate your love for one another. You’ll also find plenty of lesbian bars on this island, ideal for those who love to party with their other half.
Santorini is another one we love to recommend. It’s an endlessly romantic island, offering breathtaking sunsets over it’s spills of blue-domed churches and white-washed buildings. Wander hand in hand through narrow, cobblestoned streets, and find quaint tavernas to try out the local cuisine. Santorini is also considered a more liberal spot than some of the other islands and towns in Greece, so you can celebrate your nuptials in complete freedom.
Mykonos is another fantastic destination for lesbian travelers. It’s one of the most LGBTQ+ friendly of the Greek Islands, with plenty of gay bars and clubs where you can dance ’til dawn. It’s also a wonderfully romantic spot, offering turquoise waters, white-washed houses and a welcoming atmosphere. There’s history and culture to explore here too, with a myriad of ruins to explore.
The Maldives may not be the first place you think of when planning your lesbian honeymoon – after all, being LGBTQ+ is outlawed here. However, whilst on the surface gay travel to the Maldives may seem impossible, the resorts that punctuate these gorgeous islands are all warm and welcoming to LGBTQ+ tourists in spite of the wider country’s laws. In fact, some of the resorts are even run by gay and lesbian owners.
The Maldives is a laid-back destination, ideal for those who want full relaxation from their getaway. You won’t find busy excursions or adrenaline pumping activities here You and your twin flame can enjoy soaking in the stunning azure waters of the Maldives, or even stay in an overwater bungalow that sits perched on stilts above the sparkling water. Head to the white sandy beaches around the islands for swimming, snorkeling and sunbathing – or get involved in watersports if you feel inclined. We’d definitely recommend opting for an itinerary that includes a seaplane flight to your resort in the Maldives – it’s truly a bucket list experience to witness the beauty of these islands from above.
For those looking for wellness, there’s plenty of indulgent spa treatments that you can enjoy at the resorts that line the shoreline. In between spa appointments, enjoy an extra-special wine and dine experience together, with private dining in the Maldives being one of the most romantic things you can do in this stunning country. You can even book in some underwater dining if you’re craving an expeience that you can’t get anywhere else.
We visit each resort we work with in the Maldives to ensure it offers a welcome to LGBTQ+ couples – we know and understand that not everyone will feel comfortable traveling to this destination, which is why we visit ourselves, and can offer the best possible advice.
