This is the place to come if you suffer from anything at all, but the treatment seems to work best on arthritis sufferers. Bathe in the black mud, let it dry and cake on then wash it off in the sea. It tingles and then your joints don't hurt for three weeks or so. It must work as there are... More

We have experienced the mud baths before and it is a real fun experience. You need to just give yourself over to the experience. Yes the mud can be a bit smelly but it is not that bad. Smooth the mud all over then stand in the sun and dry off. Once dry re-enter the lagoon and wash the mud... More

This is the 3rd visit to the mud baths. It's such a fun day watching yourself and friends getting covered in mud and your skin feels refreshed later. It's a free day out! Yeah the smell isn't great but you kind of ignore it once you been there a wile. The water is lovely and warm in places it's great.... More

As long as you don't mind the smell, it's good fun for free! Parking can be a pain, we drove round for quite a while. Some nice restaurants and bars across the road too

Like all the others we had to give it a go and cover ourselves with the sulphuric mud. Let it try and spend the rest of the day removing it. Difficult place to find and parking is very limited and had to walk a mile in. The long walks on the promenade are a real joy for people watching and... More

The walk along the mud bath area was outstanding. It has the sea on one side and the mud baths on the other--it was a great sight to watch people put mud on themselves and the salt lake was also a great view. We will definitely try the salt lake next time we visit and soak in it. The Only... More

The Mud baths of Lo Pagan are a place to go either for the mud bathing, or for people watching. You walk into the salt lake down wooden pontoons, then scrape up the mud from the bottom and commence to cover yourself with the stuff. The next hour is the best, while the mud dries and you turn into an... More

The walk along the mud bath area has the sea on one side and the mud baths on the other---it is a great sight to watch and enjoy . All along there are flamingos and in the mornings a free air show as the military aircraft practice nearly every morning. Only bad point is the mud smell!
