5 Unconventional Honeymoon Ideas for Gay Newlyweds


Now that the whole organizational chaos of your wedding celebration has passed, it’s time to think about the best destination where you and your boo can go to and enjoy your honeymoon. Since this is the first trip you are taking as a married couple, it’s very important to choose something that’s original and unconventional. You’ll have plenty of time for the regular must-visit places and tourist attractions, so go for something unusual right now. This is why you should determine your budget and choose one of the following destinations. You definitely won’t be disappointed!

Tel Aviv, Israel

Let’s be clear on something – Tel Aviv might be a cliché gay place, but what makes it an unconventional honeymoon idea is that not everyone goes there with their spouse or boyfriend. This is perhaps the gayest city in the world, with hot AF men around every corner. The reason why everyone opts to go there alone is because what happens in Tel Aviv, stays in Tel Aviv. So, you could put your marriage to the test and visit this gay party city as a couple. If you’re a bit more open about your relationship, even better. You’ll definitely find whatever you’re looking for, and if you’re not looking for anything in particular, you can enjoy some of the best places this city has to offer and party all night.

Napa, California

For all the romantic souls out there who want to spend their first married-couple trip somewhere extremely romantic and erotic, then the best idea would be Napa. This wine country really is something special – miles and miles of pristine vineyards, amazing views and great food. You can also consider going to San Francisco for a couple of days as it’s very close to Napa and it’s one of the birthplaces of LGBTQ culture. This is definitely something you should check out, and after that, you can return to the glorious landmarks of Napa. Find the perfect bed and breakfast getaway, enjoy one of many winery tours, try the best wines and eat the best food this place has to offer. Sounds like a paradise.

Island of Brac, Croatia

Another quite unconventional idea for a honeymoon is glamping, and if you love camping and choose this way of spending your holidays from time to time, perhaps it’s time to try it out glamping with your spouse. One of the most beautiful places where you could camp during summer is the island of Brac in Croatia. This place is magnificent – it has plenty of amazing beaches with crystal clear water, it’s surrounded by pine woods and it’s very quiet. All you need is to  find a great glamping spot and you’re good to go. Bear in mind that this place is not for the party maniacs, but if you’d like something very quiet and relaxing, trust us, this is the place for you.

Margaret River, Western Australia

Australia is a place with unique nature and every adventure lovin’ Aussie has a plethora of choices when it comes to outdoor activities. If you’re living near Perth, Margaret River is place worth visiting. This part of Australia is perfect for all camping lovers. Before embarking on this nature loving experience, make sure you have the necessary camping gear and this might become the adventure of your dreams. After all, this is a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

Winelands, South Africa

It seems that most of our recommendations are connected to wine, but so what? You’re married now, and you should enjoy wine with your spouse. The final destination that we have in store for you is Africa, a place that you wouldn’t otherwise go to. So, why not for your honeymoon? Very close to Cape Town you’ll find the Winelands, a great place that’s been quite popular for same-sex travelers for quite some time now. Sir Elton John always comes here and stay at the La Residence, but if this is a bit too upscale for you, there are other options to choose from. Who wouldn’t like to go to Africa, try their wine and enjoy some of the most beautiful sights?


Hey, congratulations on getting married! Now, make it all about you, and choose the best destination for your honeymoon. Try one of these five, or if not, make sure not to choose something that’s too clichéd. Your honeymoon should be different, after all.
