Beach bathing was re-started in 1986. 10 people can bathe at once. A group of friends and family can enjoy the sand bath together. You will have a unique, relaxing experience in the sand bath. Ease your muscles by sinking in the warm sand while gazing over the vast, blue ocean. But don’t forget your camera! The staff will be happy to take a picture of you buried in the sand under a personal-it will make a great souvenir to remember your trip by.
