Spas and Treatments

The people of Porto Santo have claimed for centuries that their beach sand has healing properties, especially for rheumatic and orthopaedic disorders, and now research from universities in Norway would appear to back that up. And it’s not just the beach sand – Porto Santo’s clays and mineral waters have beneficial properties, too. And even the sea water. At last it’s possible to benefit, in a way that’s more sophisticated than simply lying on the beach and covering yourself with sand. A number of new spas have opened on the island. The Thalassotherapy Centre at the Vila Baleira Hotel specializes in seawater treatments in a variety of pools and tubs, and also offers massage and beauty treatments.
