Cervia ad Milano Marittima seaside
Cervia’s fine-sand ninekilometre-long beach and its not-too-deep and smoothly slanting seabed grant families and their babies or young children safety and relax. The “legendary” lifeguards watch over those having fun on the beach or at sea, while the beach establishments welcome beach-goers with first-rate and “cuddling” services. Swimming, surfing, sailing and water-skiing schools offer great chances to children and grown-ups. Again, a unique ecosystem in this area, a very interesting one from the biological and naturalistic point of view, can be visited by scuba-divers a few kilometres off the coast. Many sports can be practiced at sea: from deep-sea fishing to ascensional parachuting, or, of course, the more traditional water-skiing, sailing or surfing. Each single beach establishment has got beach tennis courts, and very often also bowling grounds. Anyhow, on the beach everybody can play beach volley, beach soccer, yoga, pilates, and any other activi- ty aimed at keeping both body and mind fit. Playgrounds are also available to the youngest. Most of the beach establishments have got quality certifications and the many blue-flag certifications of these latest years grant the quality of sea-and-beach-resort services and further of the countless activities addressed to disabled people.
Punta Marina Spas
The Punta Marina Spas, situated in the small seside resort between Marina di Ravenna and Lido of Adriano, offer the possibility to enjoy beauty treatments along the Adriatic Coast, surrounded by the millenary pinewood forest of Ravenna and its lidos.
The aquifer containing sodium chloride, bromide, iodide, calcium and magnesium was discovered in 1991 and contains an high concentration of magnesium (470 mg/liter). This characteristic makes the thermal water of Punta Marina particulary efficient as an anti-inflammatory, antiseptic and immunostimulating.
The thermal water of Punta Marina is used to treat the osteoarticular, respiratory, otolaryngological and gynaecologic systems through inhalations or therapeutic baths in the wide swimming pools.
Beyond hydrotherapy, the Spas in Punta Marina also give the opportunity to undergo specialist examinations, orthopaedic rehabilitation, physiotherapy, massotherapy and beauty treatments. The pride of the Spas in Punta Marina, and a traditional tourist mecca for people flocking there, is the Beauty centre cherished by the spa establishment.
The welcoming spa establishment of Cervia is surrounded by a millenary pinewood forest and situated a short distance from the sandy beach and the Park of the salt-pan. Visit Cervia and its spas is the ideal way to relax and regenerate thanks to the exclusive treatments and techniques provided by the spa establishment. Thanks to the regenerating power of the waters containing sodium chloride, bromide and iodide and the mud from the salt-pan, hydrotherapy is an outstanding way to treat or prevent osteoarticular problems or respiratory disorders, to recover tone and vitality and to regenerate both body and mind.
The water containing sodium chloride, bromide and iodide can be employed for inhalations, gynaecologic treatments and beauty treatments. The mud baths have a rare chemical-biological composition due to the sedimentation of mineral salts and other substances. The lagoon mud, called "liman" is to be smeared on the skin at a temperature of 40 degrees and then dried in the sun in the comfortable solarium.
In the brand new department of physiokinesitherapy are modern equipments to undergo electrotherapy, magnetotherapy, laser- and ultrasound-based treatments. Here work the expert massagers of the Cervia Spas, who are able to provide lymphdraining treatments, water gymnastics, plantar reflexology and the innovative diathermy therapy, a non-invasive electrode-based treatment used to treat sprains, tendinitis and fractures.
