When it’s the time for a vacation, all you need is a destination where you can be free and be yourself. After all, vacations mean a place of fun and frolic without having to look over your shoulder all the time.
Unfortunately, it isn’t easy being a lesbian single or a lesbian couple and choosing a destination for your next vacation. To be honest, safe gay travel for men is a bit easier than it is for women. It starts with the vacation listings themselves…more often than not when a vacation listing says “gay friendly” it doesn’t mean it is also “lesbian friendly.” This is why I strongly recommend checking in lesbian travel discussion boards or calling in and checking with the hotel/resort how lesbian friendly they are.
You may want a great vacation in the company of women, or you may be bringing your lady company for your vacation…either ways, do check out our recommendation for the best vacations for lesbian singles.
