The 850 kilometres of Portuguese coastline offer ample opportunities to relax and experience the Atlantic to the fullest. However, it is in the Thalassotherapy centres around the country that you can take relaxation a step further. The treatments - based on seawater, which is very similar in composition to blood plasma - allow for the intake of elements considered indispensable for the balance of the organism.
In the Algarve, with its beaches never far away, try the ‘Firming Treatment’ or the ‘Leg Toning Treatment’ at the Vilalara Thalassotherapy Centre. Your body will be grateful and your days spent sunbathing will gain a completely new dimension.
On the beautiful island of Porto Santo, combat the stress of ‘modern life’ with the Thalassotherapy programmes at the Vila Baleira centre.
The semi-tropical climate and ambience of the island will help you to achieve a higher degree of wellness.
For perfect relaxation, combine your treatment with sporting activities. Golf is the king of sports in the Algarve, with many first-class courses for you to choose from. If you visit Madeira or Porto Santo, make sure you take the opportunity to go scuba diving or to do some open water fishing. And because the spirit plays such an important role in your well-being, a visit to monuments of interest or a museum will round off your holiday to perfection.
