Who We Are

Pink Coconuts is an LGBTQ travel startup building a new travel experience for the queer traveler.

We believe that LGBTQ people should be able to travel everywhere and anywhere with comfort and ease. We believe that travel should be good for self, good for the community and good for the environment. Community is the foundation of everything we do, from our resident Pink Coconuts guests, to our local queer communities and supportive global partners.

We believe travel and movement is at the centre of true community. 2020 dealt us a tough hand and now we need authentic connection more than ever.  We understand when travelling across many parts of the world, LGBTQ people need an extra hand to be connected to accepting and welcoming people, spaces and communities.
However, our bar goes way beyond safety.
Comfort, fun, ease and community are the words we use to describe the Pink Coconuts experience.

Heading to somewhere you've never been before or travelling with your partner?

Let's do it.
