However, unlike tourists, the indigenous people are not in a hurry to attend the expensive advertised resorts like Blue Lagoon. What if, when buying a ticket in any town pool provide the same set of services are ten times cheaper? But they are very happy to go to Nautholsvik thermal baths (pictured).
From the first glance it is easy to confuse with a real southern resort. Soft yellow sand beckons invitingly to bury his foot in it, and blue water as if to hint that it is time for her to plunge. But do not forget that the Atlantic ocean is not Indian. Yes, thanks to the pipes through which the lagoon serves hot water from the springs, it warms up a bit. However, temperature can be considered as high a stretch: she is about 17°C in summer and no more than 14°C in winter.
The most extreme tourists, of course, the risk to have a swim in such Spartan conditions. But most travelers most of the time prefer to bask on the warm sand or heals in the small thermal baths, taking a dip in the Atlantic ocean more like extreme fun.

At that time, as the ambient temperature frequently falls below 30°C, water in China-Hot springs is heated to 60°C. not surprisingly, tourists are advised to swim in the caps. With such a large temperature difference hair and eyelashes will immediately become covered by an ice crust from the rising steam.
