Gay-Friendly Honeymoon Picks! {Aruba & New Zealand}

With the stress of planning a wedding behind you, it’s time to revel in newlywed bliss. Whether you want adventure, relaxation or culture, Teresa from Honeymoon Islands has selected some of the hottest gay-friendly honeymoon spots:

Relax on white sandy beaches on the skirts of the turquoise water that the Caribbean is famous for. What sets this particular island apart in paradise is the many resorts, such as Bucuti and Tara Beach Suites & Spa, that strive to maintain an eco-friendly atmosphere. If you are looking for luxury then The Ritz-Carlton, Aruba – is for you. It’s one of the newest and most pedigreed resorts in Aruba. With its pristine beaches and beautiful landscape, guests will revel in a new standard of luxury and elegance that characterizes one of the finest Aruba 5 star hotels. Aruba is home to some of the best wreck dives in the Caribbean. If you’d prefer to stay dry, you can still view the haunting attractions from the comfort of a tiptop submarine or semisubmersible boat.

New Zealand
For those who have a couple of weeks to spare, this once-in-a-lifetime trip is worth making the nearly day-long trip to down under. Explore the windy paths of New Zealand's two islands by car, soaking in the friendly Kiwi culture along the way. Blanket Bay acclaimed as New Zealand’s luxury lodge. Whether you’re a oenophile (sip your way from North to South) or an adventure junkie (get an adrenaline rush with “zorbing,” white water rafting, skiing and bungee jumping), a spa seeker (hit up the geothermal gems at Wai-O-Tapu Geothermal Wonderland) or a beach bunny (bask on the golden sands of Mission Bay), there’s truly something here for everyone.
