The two sources of mineral waters and the sea, contribute to healing, wellness and rejuvenation of guests. 

The hot thermal water springs at a temperature of 55 degrees Celsius and helps both in the treatment of several ailments, and in the wellness and rejuvenation of guests. Further, Leykandrias drinkable water that springs at a temperature of 21-22 degrees Celsius is also beneficial for the human body. 

The name Agiasmata is directly related to the two water sources. Is the result of recognition of their medicinal properties from local residents, who in old times believed the two waters were simply “holy waters». 

Finally, the sea. The north winds - in the summer called “meltemia” - force waves to ”break” with fury on the coast, thus creating, with the ”clouds” of droplets (iodine) filling the air, an ideal environment for lovers of thalassotherapy (inhalationtherapy), and an attractive environment for the romantics who become excited by the noise of splash, whereas writers, artists and intellectuals get inspired.
