This island paradise offers us the sea’s benefits in its thalassotherapy centres. In O Grove, we’ll sample the very best seafood and we’ll embark in its port to ply the Ría de Arousa; Here, we’ll get to see the work done in the shellfish rafts, where the best seafood in the world is farmed.
A Toxa Island is a haven for an in-depth experience with the sea. You can take advantage of its beneficial effect on health, enjoy the delicacies fished from its depths or become engrossed in its coastal and underwater scenery. We’d like to propose a couples’ getaway to its thalassotherapy centres. Here, you can combat stress, beautify your body and spirit, have fun orrelax… as well as enjoy its splendid cuisineand admire the intense blue of the horizon.
The tranquillity of the island
The most common way to reach the island of A Toxa is to follow the O Salnés AG-41 motorway in the direction of Sanxenxo-Cambados-O Grove. Once we’ve reached this town, we’ll cross the bridge joining it to the island.
The soothing, health-enhancing powers of sea water
We recommend that you arrive early in the afternoon. As soon as we drop our luggage, we can head to the hotel’s spa and thalassotherapy areas. We’ll find a very large programme of relaxation, beauty, slimming, health and even rehabilitation therapies on offer.
We can now start verifying the health-enhancing power of thalassotherapy, based on treatments that use primarily sea-based components. Sea water is warmed to body temperature so that, when we immerse ourselves in it, our skin becomes permeable to the minerals making it up. At the same time, the density of this liquid element relieves us of a great deal of bodyweight.
We can accompany our bath with the different manual massage techniques offered at these facilities. Some are applied by several professionals simultaneously. Their hands intertwine in perfect sync, relaxing us from head to toe. At the end, we’ll really notice the effects on our body and spirit.
At this point, we’re in a total state of relaxation, so to top off the treatment, enjoying a little siesta is recommended – and even highly desirable – so that we can fully assimilate the benefits of the thalassotherapy as a part of our spa experience.
A walk around the island.
After a good rest, allowing the island to invite us to take a walk is an exhilarating option. Its shores offer spectacular views of the estuary, sometimes from white balustrades. Its palm- and pine-tree-dotted paths stimulate our mind and thus we’ll notice – more intensely if possible – the flavours of the seafood from the Ría de Arousa. Its quality is justly famous and, accompanied by local Albariño wines, is usually an indispensable choice.
