Sea Swim and Sauna in Cornwall

Feel the warmth of a Cornish Beach Sauna

Escape to the Sauna. ¬†Discover a community wood fired sauna at several beautiful locations in Cornwall. ¬†Wild wellness at¬†three gorgeous beaches in Cornwall. ¬†For a sauna in St Austell, we’re on the sand at Carlyon Bay Beach, just yards from the sea. ¬†For the best sauna in Falmouth, find us at Maenporth where the sauna is just a few steps away from the beach at Maenporth boatyard. ¬†For a sauna in Hayle you’ll find us next to the North Quay slipway, right on the riverside.¬†

At all of our locations you can wild swim in the beautiful waters of Cornwall alongside our traditional wood fired sauna.  Come and relax in a wood fired sauna by the sea and feel the benefits of this thermal wellness combination at one of our three beachside locations.  

Mixing these two amazing lifestyle therapies is the root of thermalism; an old practice, where wellness comes from a play between the heat therapy of the sauna and the cold water therapy of the sea.  For thousands of years, cultures have found healing and built social bonds through the heat and the cold.
