Five Female-Only Beach Getaways Every Girl Need

The time has come, ladies!

Say hello to sun tanning by the beach, lounging by the pools,
going for a good workout at the gym and winding down at the spa.
And did we mention the endless outdoor activities and Halal cuisine all in one place?

These female-only beach getaways were simply a dream back in those days. Today, women from all backgrounds, hijabi or not, can now experience being in their element in these female-only resorts and islands.

In recent years, the travel industry has catered to the needs and wants of family travelers, solo travelers, and couples and now the time has arrived to cater to the new and upcoming market of women travelers.

This is exceptionally exciting for Muslim women who cover and practice modesty the Islamic way. Time to get rid of those nasty hijab tan-lines and let the golden tan spread all over. Female only tourism will allow women to finally experience getaways in a way that could only dream of doing.

From mental health, physical health and pure delight, here are 5 Reasons Why You Need To Give Yourself A Good Ol' Beach Getaway.

1. Soak In All That Vitamin D

Booking an all ladies experience can be a great time to allow your body to fuel up on Vitamin D. Letting your hair down and tanning in the sun can allow you to get that much needed Vitamin D which maintains the internal and external health of our bodies, from our bones, nervous system, lung system and so much more.

2. Be The Productive You

We often forget the importance of relaxation, but practicing mindfulness, meditation and relaxation can be great benefits to our mental and physical health. Our busy lives filled with family, work, and responsibility will often strain our bodies and it’s not too long until our bodies start to ache and pain as a way to tell us to slow down, breathe and relax. It is healthier and more productive to relax and enjoy some me-time before you get to that critical stage.

3. Appreciating Others

Whether you are traveling with your family, friends or even just your little-self. It is undeniable that this new type of experience will be liberating. It would allow you to bond with sisters all around the world, whilst simultaneously absorbing in some sun, sea, and satisfaction. You can connect with those around you in a different way, without worrying too much about daily life concerns.

4. Invest In The Growing Market
