Cavascura at the Maronti beach

A place where time stands still, where the natural realm of the island shows all its richness: Water, plants, and sun a stone's throw from the sea.

Cavascura at the Maronti beach is one of those areas that leave breathless visitors from all over the world.
This very old spa, known and visited by ancient Romans, looks pretty much like it did two thousand years ago. The place can be reached by the beach of Maronti in Barano, one of the biggest of the island. From the beach, a small path penetrates the hill. A stream of water indicates the presence of a spring, and, after a few meters, you will arrive at a place which is still intact from the times when Roman emperors and senators came here to get a dose of "leisure time and wellbeing": This is Cavascura.

The place is a treasure for the lovers of geology who will admire, along the trail that goes from the beach to the thermal area, the abraded tuff walls which are constantly changed by atmospheric factors. It is a pleasant walk also for people who love plants. The path that runs along the small river is full of spontaneous plants, like canes and papyrus.

This open air spa has a very special ancient charm: In the baths carved in the volcanic rock it is possible to soak; there is also a natural sauna carved in a cave, and some baths of cold water. In the Spartan cabins, the wellness therapy continues with mud treatments and massages: Just like the Romans used to do two thousand years ago.
