WILD SEAWEED BATHS

AN OUTDOOR
BATHING EXPERIENCE

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.

Definitely worth a visit We should have been doing a coastal walk today, but the ground was too wet, so we drove on down to Halen Mon Sea salt company on recommendation of others. I'm so glad we did, as we got there just before a tour was due ( you can book them ). Rob was our guide and very informative, encouraged us to ask questions as we went around. At the end, we had a salt tasting, which was very interesting, and even a taste of gin, as they now work with someone to produce this. The shop is full of their produce, all using their own salt. It was definitely a good change of plan for us, and I would recommend a visit.

Salty tasting time Visited Halen Mon due to a poor weather weekend. Really pleased we did. The tour was relaxed and educational and Rob was friendly and informative. The salt does taste better than you would imagine before the tasting experience, and this encouraged us to buy treats in the lovely gift shop. Would highly recommend.

Anglesey Sea Salt - A must visit! This is a must visit for your family and will convert you from ever using ordinary salt ever again. Anglesey Seal Salt (Halen Mon) is set in a beautiful corner of Anglesey looking over the The staff are incredibly knowledgeable and the tour of the factory was so interesting and informative. Mike - our guide was great fun and was able to answer any question we threw at him. The Salted Caramel Sauce and the Gin were a particular favourite and we indulged heavily in the shop after the tour. Go visit when you're next on Anglesey - you won't be disappointed.

The seaweed bath was an exceptional experience We turned up on the wrong day for the seaweed bath and they were so lovely and accommodating. Thankfully they fitted us in. This was an exceptional experience, my skin feels amazing and it was so relaxing. The manager was a really lovely bloke, explained how things worked and was very respectful of our privacy when it came time to get in the barrel. The company, the staff, the salt, the views were all mind blowing. Worth every penny 😊

10/10 Tours Had the most amazing tour this morning by the lovely and insightful Rob. So interesting to see the makings of the Anglesey sea salt. Purchased some goodies on the way out and will be back for sure next time we’re in the area. Thank you Halen Môn!

Informative, friendly and enjoyable Mike led our tour and he was good at explaining the manufacturing process, with good humour. The tasting part was very interesting and really highlighted why Halen Môn salt is so good. We then bought some as well as other lovely items from their shop. We also heard very positive things from other visitors about the seaweed baths and that’s definitely on the list to try on a return visit. A HUGE thank you must go to Rob, the Visitor Centre Manager. As he was trying to lock up and go home, he gallantly came to our rescue as we struggled with an electric vehicle charger and, after making a phone call on our behalf, managed to get us sorted out. I should stress here that the problem was nothing to do with their onsite charger itself.

Well worth a visit We did the tour with Mike who was very informative. We enjoyed hearing the story of how Halen Môn came to be and seeing the processing areas. The tastings were enjoyable and we came away with salt, salted caramel (wow) and a bottle of their gin!

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.

How much does it cost?

A seaweed bath lasts 45 minutes and costs £39.50 per person.
