Enjoy thalassotherapy in Gijón
San Lorenzo Beach (Gijón)
San Lorenzo Beach (Gijón)
If you are looking for reasons to explore the Region of Asturias, then don’t worry – there are plenty. This region of northern Spain has beaches, culture, countryside, sports, gastronomy… However, this year there is another reason to add to the list, with a modern thalassotherapy centre opening in the city of Gijón. Here you will discover an original way of relaxing with seawater.
Way back in history the Romans already knew the properties of the waters of the Cantabrian Sea in Gijón. Proof of this lies in the Roman thermal baths that can still be seen at one end of stunning San Lorenzo Beach - you can visit them to this day. Now in the 21st century, you too can relax body and mind if you visit this city in the Region of Asturias. All you have to do is head for the recently opened Talasoponiente Centre. The sophisticated facilities here offer you all the benefits of thalassotherapy.
Strolling along the beach you will be immediately struck by this modern building set alongside the marina in Poniente Bay. Its unique structure was designed to be sustainable and energy-efficient. Nevertheless, the most interesting thing is that it is the perfect place to sample the health benefits of marine elements such as water, sand, algae and mud. Their high mineral content makes them into stimulating treatments that restore your organism’s natural balance and vitality.
Leisure and beauty centre
Whether you are travelling as a couple or with friends or family, here you will find a varied array of treatments on offer at affordable prices, to improve your appearance and make you feel well. Besides areas dedicated to hydrotherapy and beauty treatments there is also a sports complex and specialised physiotherapy centre. Meanwhile, the kids will be having a great time at the leisure area, having fun on attractions such as waterslides, the wave pool and white water river slide. Don’t forget to stop off at the shopping area, have a snack at the café or savour a delicious meal at either of the centre’s two restaurants.
To round off a day dedicated to personal wellbeing, you can explore the fishing neighbourhood of Cimadevilla in Gijón’s historic old town, located very close to the Talasoponiente Centre. Your kids will love the aquarium which is also close by. And if you feel like something more active, then head for the city’s Marine Resort to enjoy the sporting side of the sea. Gijón will make you feel great – come and see for yourself.
