First of all, congratulations on your engagement! Now that the preparations for the wedding are underway, it’s time to think about where to go celebrate your honeymoon with your bae. The world has so many places to offer, and if you’re a couple deciding on the honeymoon destination, things can get a bit difficult as you can practically go anywhere in the world and have a blast. However, unfortunately, not all of the places are gay friendly, so you need to do a bit of homework before choosing your destination. Here you have a list of the best 7 places for a gay honeymoon, and choosing one might result in the best vacation of your lifetime. Add your husband to the package and you’ve got yourself a vacation of your dreams! Take a look:

1. Pender Harbor, Canada

If you’re looking for something secluded yet very interesting, then going to Canada might be a great option. Filled with beautiful nature and great people, Canada is a great place to spend your gay honeymoon. The best option there is the Pender Harbour, and booking a room at the Painted Boat Resort and Spa is a great idea. On one side, you will see magnificent, pine-tree covered hillsides, while in front of you you’ll see the most beautiful, postcard-worthy bay you can find in Canada. Don’t you think that you won’t have anything to do there since it’s in nature – the resort offers numerous villas, a spa, fitness center, pools and hot tubs, and even restaurants so you can have a romantic dinner with your husband anytime you wish.

2. Koh Samui, Thailand

Now something for all the fans of the exotic and distant – Thailand. If you’re hitting Thailand, make sure that you go to the best place this country has to offer: the magical island of Koh Samui. If this is the option that you’ve always wanted to visit, make sure to book a room at the amazing Ritz Carlton, which is located on the site of a former coconut plantation. There are 175 suites, and you can choose one of the three options of accommodation: terrace suits that overlook the resort and offer a magnificent view over the ocean; pool villas where you will have access to your own personal infinity pool, and ultimate pool villas where you have both a personal infinity pool and a great view of the ocean. If you’re up for a swim, you can either choose to hit the great swimming pool, or go to the adjacent beach and enjoy an exotic ocean swim. In addition, there are plenty of spas, restaurants and workout areas, so you’ll never be bored.

3.  Berlin, Germany

Europe is indeed amazing, and Berlin is perhaps one of the best destinations for a great gay honeymoon, especially if you want to experience the European gay life as well. Among many gay clubs that are located throughout the city, you will be able to learn a bit more about the German history that’s extremely interesting. You’ll be able to find amazing places to stay while there, but our recommendation is definitely the Mercure Hotel Berlin City – take a look why.

4. San Francisco, USA

If you’re going to San Francisco, you should wear flowers in your heart. And if you’re going to San Francisco for your honeymoon, you should book a room in the Parc Hotel 55, as it’s practically amazing. After a long day of gaying around the gayest city in the United States and going on a tour to see the most iconic gay bars of the previous century, you can relax in this hotel and either enjoy a romantic dinner for , exercising in a large fitness center, or simply staying in your room and enjoying the view overlooking the downtown of San Francisco and the Bay.

5. Porto, Portugal

If your destination of choice is Europe and you think Germany is a bit dull and monotonous, then Porto should be your next option. This city is indeed remarkable – its historical city centre is very unique, especially because it’s declared as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. In order to get the full Porto experience, don’t forget to book one of the Portugal travel tours and see all the important sights – after that, you’ll be free to party around the city (and gays really do find Porto a gay haven).

6. Kelowna, Canada

It seems that Canada really should be your first choice, as this is the second time it’s on this list, but what can we do since the places are amazing? Another great option for all of you who are looking for a quiet and romantic honeymoon: if you’re a nature lover, and you’ve always wanted to visit Lake Okanagan, then staying at the Delta Grand Okanagan Resort is definitely what you need. It was built in the 1980’s, but has been remodeled since, and now it’s one of the best places to stay if you’re visiting this beautiful lake of British Columbia in Canada.

7. Tivat, Montenegro

And for the last recommendation, we’re going back to Europe. There’s a great city on the shores of the Adriatic Sea – so great that even a horror flick “Nymph” was filmed there. We’re talking about Tivat, a very modern town that’s breathtakingly beautiful. Not only does it offer amazing beaches and modern architecture; the combination of Montenegrin cuisine and their wines is mind-boggling. If you choose to stay in a luxurious neighborhood called Porto Montenegro, your honeymoon will be filled with different activities as it’s a shame not to try them all.
