WILD SEAWEED BATHS
Our barrels are seasonal – we open approx April – October.
For hundreds of years, people have been bathing in seaweed for its nurturing, restorative and healing properties. In warm water, seaweed releases its mineral-dense oils, offering rich relaxation and soothing tired muscles.
Using the pure water generated as a by-product of our sea salt harvesting process, we are the first company in Wales to offer a seaweed soak detox, celebrating the unparalleled view in this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Don your swimming costume and bathe in the power of seaweed in your own private upcycled whiskey barrel.
Seaweed is incredibly sustainable – it doesn’t require soil, fertiliser, or fresh water to grow, and when harvested at the right time it encourages even more regrowth.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Our recycled barrels are wonderfully warm (around 40C), but they are outside to make the most of the elements and our outstanding panoramic view.
Our bathing area looks directly out to sea and we offer simple wooden changing rooms. We use the distilled water from our salt-making process for our baths – ie it is fresh water.
Please be aware that your dip will go ahead come rain or shine. Every weather brings something different to the experience.

What are the benefits of seaweed bathing?
The benefits of bathing in seaweed have been well-known for centuries. The mineral-dense oils are incredibly moisturising, making it brilliant for anti-ageing and especially for dry skin. The experience is totally natural, the ingredients being 100% seaweed and warm water – and it’s brilliant for relaxing sore muscles. A traditional, restorative ritual that will, quite simply, make you feel wonderful.
