Gay couples can now legally marry in 18 countries — a statistic that increasingly raises an important question: Where’s the best spot for a gay honeymoon? More and more destinations are now catering to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) travelers.

John Tanzella, chief executive of the International Gay and Lesbian Travel Association, says it’s an encouraging trend, but he worries there’s a risk of gay vacationers being targeted as a “niche.” “When you’re planning that dream trip it’s still important to work with travel professionals who understand the needs of gay travelers as individuals,” he adds. Among travel organizations that seem to be getting the message is the Association of British Travel Agents, which is the latest to compile a list of destinations offering same-sex honeymooners a friendly atmosphere and catering to a broad range of tastes.

Here’s its 10.

Cape Town, South Africa: The dramatic backdrop of Table Mountain rises above this gorgeous city bathed in almost year-round sunshine. It’s a great place to relax for a couple of days, then travel out to the numerous wineries in the lush green countryside close to the city. Where else can you see penguins sunning themselves on a beach?
