Published Date Author: , May 27th, 2012

St. MartinNow that more states in the U.S. have legalized gay marriage, there’s even more reason to take a gay honeymoon. But where to? I’ve compiled a list of the top 10 gay and lesbian honeymoon destinations Queertrip.com travelers are heading to.

10. The Caribbean

The Caribbean Islands are very popular for honeymooners across all walks of life. With crystal-blue waters, white-sand beaches, and drinks served with little umbrellas in them, who wouldn’t want to relax with a loved one on one of these islands in the sun? While the Caribbean is quite a tempting destination, gay and lesbian travelers should be aware that not every Caribbean island is welcoming toward us queers. Destinations in the Caribbean that are not friendly toward LGBT people or that have laws against homosexuality include Antigua and Barbuda, Barbados, Dominica, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, Trinidad and Tobago, the Cayman Islands, and Jamaica. So which islands are safe for honeymooning gays? Puerto Rico, Saint Barts, Saint-Martin, Sint Maarten, and the U.S. Virgin Islands are great destinations where LGBT travelers can feel safe and comfortable.

9. Barcelona, Spain

Barcelona has it all: beaches, nightlife, Spanish architecture, and, best of all, equality for all queers! As one of the most progressive destinations when it comes to LGBT rights, queer travelers feel welcomed with open arms. The city of Barcelona makes for a memorable honeymoon destination. There are several gay beaches, including Platja de Sant Sebastia and the clothing-optional Platja de la Mar Bella. Only 45 minutes south of Barcelona is the city of Sitges, a popular gay resort destination. Relax on the beaches, hit up the clubs, view the museums and art, and people-watch!
