FITNESS & HEALTH
drawn to Sardinia for the renown of
its sea are never disappointed, because
a sojourn at the shore by the clear,
multicolored water is enjoyable and
relaxing. Those who love tranquil
vacations find uncrowded facilities
furnished with every comfort where
one can restore his strength by relaxing
and admiring the surrounding nature.
However, the needs of modem tourism are increasing and diversifying; in recent years tourist proposals have been combining the beauty of the surrounding countryside and top-quality facilities with leisure activities and health spa treatments.
The Romans were the first to take advantage of the hot springs in Sardinia. Their passion for hol spring baths was so great that
searched tucked-away areas ot the island tor the locations where the precious, therapeutic springs murmured and flowed. In the centuries that followed these springs were completely abandoned, and only today have they been re-introduced.
Since the hot springs industry in Sardinia is quite young, it still must learn to make the most of its own natural resources.
The most important hot spring resorts are found in Sardara (the
province of Cagliari) and Benetutti (the province ot Sassari).
These are delightful localities offering the possibility of combining
mineral water therapy with visits to the wealth ot historical and ar
monuments in Sardinia.
There are also numerous springs in Tempio Pausania, Codrongianos, and Bonorva (in the province of Sassari).
Thus , this type of vacation lets one combine the pleasures of the body and soul and can be considered a real vacation in every sense. This is just one of the many attractions Sardinia has to offer.
And now is the moment to study the best periods and ways to propose "health and well-being" vacation packages most suited to the needs of today's tourist.
