Sun, sea, fresh air and with natural resources that can be used for therapeutic use in a more than privileged setting. Gran Canaria is a unique destination for people seeking to relax and improve their health and well-being.
In fact, Gran Canaria was probably one of the first destinations to attract people seeking improvement in their health. In the 19th century, rumours of miracle cures for ill-health circulated around Europe and many people made the journey to the island, many of them following their doctor’s recommendations.
So, where better than Gran Canaria? The climate in the Canary Islands is considered to be “the best climate in the world” with three thousand hours of sunshine guaranteed per year. The combination of an excellent climate, mineral rich waters and a relaxed environment make it the best place to unwind and revitalise yourself.
A huge open-air natural spa
Basically, this is what Gran Canaria is. With 60 kilometres of coastline, splendid beaches open to an ocean of clean, mineral-rich sea, it is impossible for a person not to feel renewed after a bathe in this natural spa whilst drying off in the sand under the pleasant rays of the sun.
The sea which is charged with iodine, sodium and other elements that are beneficial for the body, the warmth of the fine sands and the vitamin D from the sun all contribute towards a feeling of well-being. Most Europeans have low levels of vitamin D in their bodies and this vitamin is necessary for the absorption of calcium and important in the prevention of osteoporosis. A therapeutic walk on our golden sands will do you the world of good.
Spa and Wellness Centres
Furthermore, there are a number of select Spa and Wellness centres on the island that offer an excellent range of techniques and services ranging from different types of massages and hydrotherapy, thermotherapy, reflexotherapy, aromatherapy, mud baths, salt baths, Turkish baths, algae wraps, amongst others. These therapies being ideal for those suffering from fatigue and stress, the range and quality of the services are second to none. They are recommended for rehabilitation treatments, rheumatism, skin and bone disorders and, without doubt, perfect for those suffering from fatigue and stress.
Up in the mountains
Apart from the relaxing beaches and select spa and wellness centres, Gran Canaria boasts spectacular mountain scenery and the best way to see it is on foot. Fresh air, good exercise and wonderful scenery can be enjoyed via organised mountain walks. Tourists are always amazed at just how much Gran Canaria –the “miniature continent” as it is known– has to offer.
