Golden Sands Natural Park and Hot Springs
For an afternoon break out of the sunshine, take a peaceful stroll through Golden Sands Natural Park to see a stunning combination of wildlife, bubbling hot springs and green forests. Wander through the park to see reptiles, birds and a variety of wild animals including red deer, wild boar and beech marten. Discover rare and endangered plants with over 500 different species of flora making up the stunning scenery.
Hot water springs with temperatures of around 18-24°C, cascade from the Franga Plateau in delicate streams and pools located within the lush woodlands. The mineral combination found in the waters, matched with the hot microclimate is said to have healing qualities. The hot springs are often used to successfully treat conditions such as neurosis, arthritis, asthma, bronchitis and stress.
