In Oia, we’ll dive into the seawater of its thalassotherapy spa and benefit from treatments with algae, mud and salts. Later, we’ll sail towards the Cíes Islands – a natural paradise of great ecological value – where we’ll enjoy swimming at one of the best beaches in the world.
A getaway to Oia allows the Atlantic to be enjoyed in all its aspects. The healthiest: enjoying the benefits of its waters in a seawater spa’s facilities, while the most exciting is sailing the ocean to the shores of the Cíes Islands, a natural paradise where you can admire the beauty of their landscape and become aware of their great ecological value in the Parque Nacional das Illas Atlánticas de Galicia.
The waters of the Atlantic, concentrated in a thalassotherapy spa
A picturesque coastal road leads to the municipality of Oia, in the Baixo River Miño region. This is the destination that we suggest for you to experience the effects of the recognised micro-medicinal mineral properties of the Atlantic’s seawater and its algae, silt, salts and mud applied in health, beauty and relaxation treatments.
We recommend arriving early in the afternoon at this area bordering the municipalities of Baiona and Oia. This way, you’ll have the chance to come into contact with the spectacular scenery of this coast which is open to the ocean and will impress you. You can do this from the lookout of the Cape Silleiro Lighthouse. Take the road that starts off in Baiona towards A Guarda; about five kilometres along, a detour to the left allows us to ascend to the lighthouse. It is a prime location for seeing how the waves hit the rocky coast and for viewing the town of Baiona, the islas Cíes and – scanning the distance – Cape Home.
