This may not be for everyone. The natural mud is slippery and hot and sulphuric, very very smelly. And it's difficult to get the odour off your costume. But the experience is incredibly memorable and leaves you relaxed and your skin very soft.

The mud is so smooth, but very hot. Avoid stepping on the bubbles, they are extremely hot, wearing a pair of... More

Really relaxing experience but I personally couldn't face the heat for too long. Nothing to complain about it as it is a wonderful natural effect of the near Vulcano.

The filling to bath in such water is a little bit strange, but also very interesting things. You could enjoy, you could cover yourselves with soil, but you must know that you will feel the smell on your skin and clothes for some days more after bathing there.

Maybe because this was my first time to a natural sulfuric mud spring I didn't know exactly what to expect. Just a short distance from the port, you'll encounter a mud bath. I found it difficult to get the mud on. By the time I did, my tolerance for the heat & smell was exceeded. My skin was nicely exfoliated... More

I've been few times on Vulcano island and always used to take these sulfur baths, well it is stinky enough and I had another set of clothes prepared for this attraction :) the feeling of total relax after and skin condition definetly worth to try it. The warm sea with hot thermal water coming from underground is something special to... More

Hard to miss while you are there and you will be glad you checked if off the list. Having said that, you won't be too disappointed to move on either. There are plenty of other things to do on the island (shops, crater, cave etc). The services on sight could use some attention. The mud is luke warm at best.... More

Having been to the thermal baths in Iceland this was a major disappointment. The facilities (changing rooms and showers) was dirty and broken. The bath was like a warm puddle. Not good.

Didn't have time for the mud baths but they're open for everyone to observe. The entrance ticket was only 3 euros. The smell of the sulphur was unpleasant but know that bathing in this mud is good for your skin.. Just be careful not to rub your eyes
