Beside the various recreational possibilities, the island also offers swimming pools and thermal water in the most beautiful natural environment compared to other Budapest spas (Danubius Health Spa Resort). Thanks to the spa’s modern equipment and the physiotherapy specifications, Margaret Island's thermal water can be used for all kinds of treatments such as: sit-down baths, massage, warm showers, carbon bath, mud bath, pine bath and traction bath. Traction bath is a Hungarian invention using extensor weight equipment under the surface of the water – you can try it in almost every Budapest spa.
