Best Honeymoon Destinations For LGBTQ+ Couples:

1. French Polynesia

One of the most sought-after gay honeymoon spots is Bora Bora. In French Polynesia, same-sex marriage is entirely legal. The country is a warm and friendly place, perfect for an LGBTQ+ honeymoon. If you are looking for a summer spot with beautiful landscapes, you’ve found the right place.

2. The Maldives

Although the Maldives may not appear to be your first choice for a honeymoon, the country is warm and friendly to visitors. The beautiful huts above the ocean floor are only found in a few other nations. The resort’s laid-back and pleasant atmosphere makes it the ideal place to visit. The Maldives will never disappoint, especially on a honeymoon.

3. Seychelles

Seychelles offers idyllic island resorts and beautiful 5-star hotels that are ideal for a post-wedding celebration. It is one of the few places in the Indian Ocean where being LGBTQ+ is legal. Try the famous North Island if you’re looking for the ultimate in luxury. Other options include the Four Seasons Resort Seychelles or the Raffles Hotel on Praslin Island. 

4. Thailand

Thailand is an excellent LGBTQ+ honeymoon destination if you prefer to fly a little on your honeymoon. Begin in Bangkok, then travel north to Chiang Mai, then relax on the island of Lanta. If you want to relax with your own private pool, the clifftop resort of Paresa Phuket is one of our top recommendations. 

5. South Africa

If you’re visiting South Africa, we highly recommend going on a safari as well as relaxing on the beach. Combine the Sabi Sabi Private Game Reserve and Mauritius’ Constance le Prince Maurice. Another choice is to drive the famous Garden Path, which begins in Cape Town and continues through South Africa’s Winelands before concluding with a safari.

6. Mexico

The Riviera Maya in Mexico has paradise beaches and a warm and friendly atmosphere. The city is not only one of the best places in Mexico to host a LGBTQ+ wedding, but it’s also a great place to go on a honeymoon. The Viceroy Riviera Maya and the Zoetry Paraiso De La Bonita are two of the best hotels in the region.

7. Italy

If visiting Europe is on your bucket list, there’s no better place to start than on the shores of Lake Como or Lake Garda. On the banks of the lakes, you’ll find not only some of Italy’s finest lands but also some of the country’s most stunning scenery. Rent a car with your spouse and drive across the mountains and hills of Lombardy to some breathtaking houses. While there are many others, the tourist’s favourites are Grand Hotel Tremezzo on Lake Como and Grand Hotel a Villa Feltrinelli on Lake Garda. 

8. Greece

This list would not be complete without including the stunning Greek Islands. If you want a unique LGBTQ+ honeymoon destination, this is the place. Aside from the obvious options of Mykonos and Santorini, you can also consider the smaller islands of Naxos, Paros, Skiathos, and Skopelos. Any of these islands can be regarded as heaven on earth.
