The sand on the Island's beaches is of volcanic origin. In the north, the sand is black, fine and silky, while the beaches in the south are golden. Both types of sand are great for an entirely natural body peel. Take some moist sand, spread it over your body and leave it to dry for about ten minutes. Before rinsing it away, give yourself a gentle massage to ensure the sand works its full exfoliating magic.

You can take the therapy a step further with a sand wrap. Cover or bury your whole body in sand (or just part if you prefer) and get ready for your skin, limbs and joints to feel instantly better.
