I didn't go inside, but it looked very interesting to see a hotel spring next to the sea and the water is flowing into the sea. People bathing in the pool making it dirty and tourist unfriendly.

There are two pools that are said to have curative powers. The one for men is good but the one for women not so good. They are open to the sea. Not great for tourists.

if you have time, you can get in, but if there is a crowd it will be noisy. this is not a hot spring per se, but a pool of natural fresh water even though next to the sea.
