It’s not always easy finding the ultimate destination for a girls’ getaway because the gang can sometimes be a bit fussy.    But we’ve found the perfect spot.

Girls want somewhere they can chill out and chat, dream and debrief, unwind (and perhaps wind up for a festive night out), explore beautiful places and eat good food.  Accommodation and accessibility is important too – and the cherry on the top is having a choice of indulgent experiences to add to the memory bank.

Enter Rottnest Island.

Perth’s spectacular holiday island is the perfect package for a girls’ getaway.   It’s got beaches and bars, coffee, cakes and cocktails, bike rides and beauty spas, spectacular views and weirdly wonderful wildlife.  You can play tennis and golf, walk endless tracks and trails and eat in world-class restaurants.  You can chill out on the most beautiful beaches in the world or fire up to live music.  Rotto has got everything really.

Let’s take a closer look at some of the things that could easily find their way onto the itinerary for the best girls’ weekend EVAH!

First up, there’s the Karma Day Spa which offers a range of indulgent spoils to soothe the spirit and inspire the mind.  From relaxing and de-stressing massages to mood-boosting treatments, the spa is truly heaven on earth.

For active types, a bike ride around the island (there are some easy routes and some more challenging ones depending on your mood and your fitness level) or a stroll along the many coastal paths will get your heart rate up.  If your team prefers gentler pursuits, you could always hire stand up paddle boards and cruise the calm waters or get bendy with a hen’s stretch or yoga class.

And with 63 bays and beaches, Rotto offers a treasure trove of secluded nooks and crannies where the girls can congregate for chats and conversations, lazy swims and sneaky naps.  But remember, while Rotto is best known for its laid-back barefoot lifestyle, there’s plenty of adrenalin on offer too.

If you have a taste for adventure, a skydive might be the bucket-list experience that elevates your girls’ trip to the next level.  Skydive Geronimo is a leader in skydiving in Perth and is the only island skydive in WA, so if you want a birds-eye view of some of the most breathtaking scenery in Australia (from the comfort of a tandem skydive with a vastly experienced instructor of course) and have an enthralling tale to tell, a Rotto skydive could be a girls’ bonding experience like no other.  so, for the time of your life, get in touch with the Perth skydiving experts, Skydive Geronimo.

And at the end the day – whether it was spent laying low on a beach, flying high on a skydive or a whole lot in between – what better way to end the day (or start the night) than with a sundowner cocktail?

If there was a global rating for sunsets, Rotto would be on the podium – so sundowners are a must -every evening of course!  The team will be spoilt for choice with Pinky’s Beach Club, the iconic Rottnest Hotel, Thompsons and the new Samphire Hotel all offering spectacular views as the perfect backdrop for a celebratory tipple.

With so much on offer, it’s no surprise really that Rottnest is one of the top destinations for girls’ getaways and of course, for getaways of every other kind like family holidays, couples retreats and tourist trips.  Check it out and starting planning your escape now!
