The best honeymoons consist of long, lazy afternoons spent lounging together on the beach and candlelit dinners in intimate restaurants. Therefore, it is essential to select a destination that is tolerant of same-sex relationships in order to enjoy your first holiday as a married couple. Travel agencies specialising in gay honeymoons have become more widespread as an increasing number of countries have legalised same-sex marriages. Many offer specialised packages that appeal to every type of holidaymaker from beach-bums to city-lovers. The following list comprises some of the best destinations for the LGBT community that will ensure an unforgettable honeymoon experience.
The Caribbean is at the top of most people’s honeymoon wish list regardless of their sexual orientation. It is important to remember that not every part of the Caribbean is tolerant of gay marriage. Male couples should definitely steer clear of islands such as Jamaica and Barbados unless you are willing to stay within the confines of your resort. Thankfully, there are plenty of gay-friendly islands to choose from including Saint Barts, Puerto Rico, the US Virgin Islands and Saint-Martin.
