Pamalican Island is arguably the most VIP island resort on Earth. Frequented by the likes of Brad Pitt and Beyonce, the luxurious getaway has plenty to offer LGBTQ+ travelers who love a little glitz and glam. Be warned, a trip here is not cheap by any means.


Case in point, the only way to reach the island is via private jet. Amanpulo, the island’s resort, has its own jet that shuttles up to 12 visitors at a time. Of course, you can always use your own if you have it.


Once on the island you’ll find 1.5 miles of scenic views and private cabanas to explore. The resort also features a lagoon bar, spa, clubhouse and a beach bar. You can also choose a private villa if you’ve got millions to spare. The more affordable beach casitas boast outdoor showers, wooden decks and garden hammocks. Each guest also receives a designated assistant to attend to your every need. Though the island is small, you can go hours on end without seeing another guest on your private spot of the beach.


Like any beach, there is plenty of windsurfing, paddleboarding and kayaking to enjoy. Snorkeling and diving are popular endeavors thanks to routinely calm waters. The daily snorkeling trips are free. While there isn’t much in the way of restaurants or shopping — everything on the island is part of the resort — there are few places to visit that promise both luxury and privacy.


The Philippines aren’t exactly known for progressive politics, but rest assured you won’t find any resistance as a LGBTQ+ traveler here. If you’re looking for a once-in-a-lifetime splurge, Pamalican Island is certainly worth a peek.

Seek Wellbeing in Greece

The Greek tradition of health and wellness runs deep; travelers can find a multitude of therapies to meet their wellbeing needs, from healing spas, herbal therapies, hypnotherapy, massages and more. In Greece, the approach to wellness focuses on the “whole” and the ways in which the mind, body and soul interact. A state of balance is achieved through a good relationship between the emotional and natural state, which can be found throughout Greece at its more than 800 medicinal spas.
