Roman Baths in Manilva
27 May 2009 @ 19:01

On a sunny day you can spend a pleasant afternoon at the Roman baths in the Hediona valley, just behind Manilva. Just off the Rio Manilva road and hidden away down a rough track under the toll road bridge and not 'fancy' in any way. But on a warm day you will find lots of people enjoying the baths.

The water is high in sulphur, particularly during the summer months, making it cloudy, milky in colour. The river starts in the Sierra Utrera and enters the sea at Casares beach.

The roman baths are a lovely quiet spot, but can be busy at the weekends. People smear the sulphur rich mud all over their bodies, dry off in the sun then dip into the underground cvern baths built by the Romans, and very cool even on a hot day.

The baths are in the municipaity of Casares although technically closer to Manilva. One of the things to do in Costa del Sol - simple, cheap and fun.

went there to try the spa and the road to it was blocked by what looked to be a land slide

Difficult to get to, and not developed in anyway. this is rough and ready but a great day out. We got there, smeared ourselves in the mud and let it dry! we looked like cave men but the lids loved it. we then dipped off in the cavern and it was amazing how we all felt and our skin soo smooth. Swimming in the cavern was incredible.
Well worth a visit, but it got busy in the evening.
