March 29 Don't let the bifurcated island's party-minded, straights-gone-wild reputation fool you, nor the violent gay bashing of six years ago which seems to have been an isolated incident. With gays repping heavily at some sublime beaches, drag-themed restaurants, and celeb-studded hotels, you'll wonder why you skipped out in the first place. Flaunt your best assets at Cupecoy Beach Closed in by dramatic cliffs, this designated gay -- yet "straight"-friendly -- beach is secluded on the Dutch side of the island and is, shocker, clothing optional not to be confused with Club Orient's fully nudist beach community that plays towards ma and pa, though gays are welcome there, too. Flaunt your best assets and erase those tan lines by basking in the tropical sun in full glory.

Martin in April and we're very excited about the trip! We've travelled both in gay-friendly and not-so-gay friendly locations before together, so we understand discretion is important when traveling abroad and we've never been the PDA couple to begin with--it's gross regardless of sexual orientation. We've avoided going to the Caribbean until now, but after some research we've decided to choose St. Martin for our anniversary trip. In some places, whenever, as two men, we do activities together like snorkeling or a private tour, we get some raised eyebrows or people might treat us a little coldly--one time in Tuscany of all places, right?
