A women - only island is opening … AnneMarie McCarthy. Lonely Planet Writer. If you’re a girl’s girl or simply want to fully surround yourself with female energy, an island off the coast of Finland is turning into an all-female wellness retreat .

In an interview with The New York Post, Roth, a former New York consultant turned lifestyle blogger, said she came up with the idea for a women-only retreat after noting that the presence of male company during what were supposed to be restorative vacations drove women to "put on lipstick" instead of being completely at ease.

Though she already owns land in Turks and Caicos, Roth said her Finnish boyfriend and his family brought the island, which is 90 minutes away from Helsinki, to her attention. After exploring the quiet, wooded land, she fell in love and saw its potential as a place to recharge.
