Route - Day 1

The tranquillity of the island

Ampliar

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 peninsula of O Grove embraces the island of A Toxa, protecting it from the worst of the raging sea; it also is blessed by the mild climate that dominates the entire valley of O Salnes. Both of these foreshadow the serenity that we’ve come looking for. This feeling of tranquillity will be accentuated in the hotel chosen from among the luxurious choice of accommodation on the island. In addition to the thalassotherapy spa hotel there are two hot springs spa hotels.

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.

In the thalassotherapy spa, the seawater
is warmed to body temperature so that the minerals composing it can penetrate into the skin

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.

“The waters and baths of A Toxa
cure horrible ailments,
ailments that it terrifies us to name”.

Emilia Pardo Bazán

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.
