Thermal Spas on Ischia

Thermal spas are by far one of the most popular attractions on Ischia, but what exactly is a "parco termale", or thermal spa, and how does it work?

By "parco termale", we mean a large complex that includes natural thermal hot springs to fill pool of different temperatures and also includes saunas, relaxation areas, Kneipp therapy, hot tubs, massage and other treatments, and often even a private beach. The waters come from the island's volcanic springs, and are said to be therapeutic for the bones, respiratory system, and skin.

The largest spas like Negombo and Poseidon have over a dozen pools and guests can spend an entire day relaxing.

Entrance costs around EUR 35 and includes a day pass to all the pools and the beach, with use of the sun beds and umbrellas. You can also buy a multi-day pass or a discounted half-day entrance.

The island's spas are open from mid-April to mid-October, and you do not need to reserve ahead.

I only have one day, so should I visit Negombo or Poseidon?

Both of these spas are beautiful, and those visiting for more than a day should relax at them both. If you have to choose, here are the pros and cons of both:

Negombo

  • Pros: lots of shade, a lush garden, a free luggage check, a number of lunch options, swim caps not required
  • Con: a lot of stairs to climb up and down

Poseidon

  • Pros: more pools, impeccably clean, few stairs
  • Cons: limited lunch options, swim cap required, paid luggage deposit (50 cents every time it's opened), lots of sun and little shade

Keep in mind that at Poseidon children under 12 are not allowed. At Negombo, children are not allowed in the pools but can enter the spa area with their parents. In both spas, children are allowed on the beach and in the sea-water pools.
