When you are planning a trip to the Caribbean, you might wonder which islands are LGBTQ-friendly. There are four islands listed below that will keep you comfortable on your vacation, and you will truly enjoy your vacation because you are in a safe place that you can enjoy with your lover. Moreover, these locations provide you with relaxing beaches, beautiful architecture, and blue waters.

1. Saba

Saba is actually known for diving and hiking. There are many wonderful places to dive with one of several dive operators. Plus, there are amazing hills and forests that you can hike during the day. This island is very small, but it is a wonderful place to stay if you like an adventure.

Plus, you could find Caribbean villas for rent on this island if you want to visit one of the smaller islands in the Caribbean. You will enjoy your trip, and the citizens of the island will welcome you with open arms.

2. St. Barts

St. Barts is a very popular destination for celebrities, and it has all the colonial architecture you could want. Plus, this island is very open to LGBTQ couples because it has the laid back French vibe that you would expect when you travel to Europe. Most people who travel to St. Barts want to go stargazing, but you could go anywhere you want while holding hands.

Plus, you can take ours of the colonial buildings, dive, take a charter fishing boat, or sit on a private beach near your villa every day.

3. St. Martin

St. Martin is one of the most intriguing places to travel in the Caribbean because it allows you to see the pastel colors of the buildings along the beach while trying both sides for the island. The Dutch side is very open to LGBTQ couples because the Netherlands is one of the most liberal countries in the world. The French side is very laid back, and that makes it easy for you to visit the island with your partner.

You are safe when you travel here, and all the workers that you meet are very nice.

4. Puerto Rico

Puerto Rico has always been open to LGBTQ couples. This US commonwealth is a place that welcomes everyone with open arms. Plus, the island has become even more liberal since gay marriage became the law of the land in America. You can stay in old San Juan, meet amazing people, and feel safe walking on the beach with your partner.


When you want to take a beautiful vacation with your partner, you need to find the most welcoming and LGBTQ-friendly islands to visit. You could start at Saba if you want to stay on a very small island that you might not have heard of. You could go to Puerto Rico to see old San Juan, or you could go to St. Barts and St. Martin. Each of these islands will make you feel at home while you enjoy a beautiful tropical vacation.
