For those who prefer a quiet place where to sunbathe nude in complete privacy, the beach also offers the Solarium, located next to the Grado seaside spa.
In total respect for privacy – and also somewhat of a legacy from Austro-Hungarian culture – the Solarium is divided into two sections, one for men and one for women. Inside there are changing rooms, hot and cold showers with sea water, sun beds and umbrellas for alternating periods of exposure to the sun with rest in the shade.
The Solarium customarily remains open from May 1 to September 30 each year.
Grado's curative properties.
The most ideal place to reap the benefits of heliotherapy – the treatment that uses exposure to sunlight in the treatment of certain skin disorders – is naturally Grado. No wonder it’s called Isola del Sole – Island of the Sun!
This treatment, which was already known and used by the ancient Romans and Greeks, is indicated to treat certain types of dermatological disorders. Exposure to the sun is definitely a natural way to stay healthy.
DID YOU KNOW THAT… Grado beach gives you a natural tan?
On Grado beach the dusting that is created in the air forms a kind of filter that increases the ability to tan. This occurs thanks to various natural factors, such as the beach’s southern position and the very pure air due to the particular microclimate and the dense vegetation behind the shoreline, which allows the natural division of two different microclimatic zones (the brisk and stimulating marine microclimate and the restful arboreal microclimate).
