The facilities are basic but it is fun to smother yourself in smelly mud and I do think it was actually good for my skin.... Tips: Wear old swimmers or underwear as the smell may never leave them and may discolour Wear footwear eg thongs/flip flops as really hot steam seeps through cracks in the ground and burn your feet!...

on a sunny day, its very difficult to seat in the bath/pool/mud pond ,as there is no means of shading above and you are exposed to the strong sun.All the facility is very poorly look and kept.There are open showers with plastic coins that enable you 1 minute of running water.

Warning: This place makes you smell for ages. When getting home, it took serveral showers to get the smell out of by body and hair. My earrings were colored black and the bath were not really a bath. But despite that, it was quite realaxing and left my skin soft like a baby. Very fun to try!

We arrived from Lipari and the minute you leave the boat the smell of sulphur hits you. The port is right by the thermal baths. We had great fun rolling around and smothering ourselves in the mud. Followed by a dip in the sea which has thermal springs. Many people sear by the healing properties and I have to say... More

We rolled in the mud like pigs and joked with the Italians. The sulphur smell is part of the experience so we didn't mind that at all. Be careful not to put the mud on your face as it can irritate your eyes for days.

Likely the only natural mud and hot springs bath I will do in my lifetime... And what better way than to do it in Italy!! The smell is bad, but we were expecting worse... In between baths you can go to the hot springs. If you're into the whole therapeutic relaxing thing, if advise to spend a whole day here...... More

A must if you are visiting the island. It is well known for the Healing properties. Everyone who goes there has to have a mud bath. This is the 1st thing we did. You can see everyone putting mud on their bodies waiting for it to dry out. Make sure you have an old costume as the smell lingers forever... More

It's my best experience on the Eolian Islands! Natural jacuzzi for free (you can easily get to the hot underwater springs from the public beach). Sulfur smell is not really very strong, and has an evident reinvigorating effect. The sulfur mud is beneficent for skin. I wish I could stay longer there.
