International Women’s Day came and went way too quickly for me. So to keep the party going, I bring you the ultimate women-only island retreat. Focusing on rejuvenation, bonding and the celebration of all women-kind, SuperShe Island is the perfect place to get away from the distractions of the world (and the men!).
On the East Coast of Tasmania, just one hour from Hobart, surrounded by the crystal blue waters of Great Oyster Bay, lies the perfect celebrity hideaway. Thalia Haven, named after one of the three Graces in Greek Mythology, sits on a 130-acre secluded coastline, 2km away from its nearest neighbour.
Sometimes we need a getaway to simply do just that, get away. Nothing says a holiday quite like tropical beaches, deserted coastlines and crystal blue waters. We have your top five island adventures for 2016 already picked for you, now all you need to do is, get away.
Our driver, Kevin, is wringing his hands. We have stopped in Barbados’ historic Speightstown to take photographs but he is concerned about me wandering off alone.
“You could get lost,” he frets.
I look up and down at Speightstown’s sole two streets, their rainbow-coloured houses bathed in the afternoon sun.
