Attraction details
Owner description: Fish Spa in Santa Maria is the first and only spa in Cape Verde where you can have a natural pedicure done by more than 100 Garra rufa fish in each individual tank. The hygiene is highest priority which is why the water is filtered and cleaned 8 times per hour. Fish Spa also features a bar and aquarium sales.

“Pleasant experience”
Reviewed 21 December 2013 via mobile

It was the first time I went to a fish spa and I was pleasantly surprised. The lady was really nice, cleaned my feet before I put them in the aquarium and made sure I was okay sitting there. Everything is really clean!

“Fish Spa, Santa Maria”
Reviewed 21 February 2013

FISH SPA is worth a visit when you come to Santa Maria. The moment you enter you know a special and unexpected experience is waiting for you. After a long day walking around, go visit Fish Spa, have a treatment and your feet will love you :-)

Not only did I get soft and silky feet. I also had another fantastic experience in FISH SPA. Surrounded by 1000 fish and a great audience I was doing an intimate and totally acoustic concert one night. Cool! :-)

“Friendly place”
Reviewed 2 February 2013

To dip your feet in the water and have the fish clean your feet is a great way to cool off after days in the warm sand. Neli and Steven have created a very nice and friendly enviroment where it is nice to chill out with a cold brew (which they also serve). The spa is close to the main square in the centre of the village so the place is buzzing with life in the suitably labelled no-stress feel of Santa Maria.

For credibilty i only gave four stars (being a friend of Neli and Steven's), but if the laid back bossa nova tunes that Steven has brought with him from his time in Brazil becomes the main soundtrack of the fish spa, I will be left with no choice but to add the fifth star
