Stick some bread between your toes and walk from Tamarells to Stay - same result - less cost :-)

Absolutely agree, why pay when you can get it done for nothing.

Oh I so agree! Managed to walk for ages round an exhibition in London after having one done, felt like walking on air. They also do it for the hands too, not sure about staring at fish that close up for 15 mins non stop is as appealing, but would give it a go at least once!

Wink Fish nibbling in the Port

Fish nibbling is now available at the place on the front (D'Agosta?) that does henna tatoos and hair braiding (next door but one to the Tex mex). They have two 'throne like' chairs outside where you sit with your feet in tanks with the little fish in. A bit embarrasing being on show to all the passers by but you get a great view of the bay in the process!! My daughter thinks it costs 15 euros for either 15 or 30 minutes.
Bonyslad/ladette should be able to keep their tootsies in tip top condition without leaving the port

Mmm. I think I might wait until a salon sets up properly and the hygiene is a bit better!

Have to say i would worry about the hygiene aspect of this, even in a salon, do they change the water for each client? . Also how often do they make the fish clean and floss their teeth?.

We had this conversation a couple of months ago on the Taps Bar. Water is continually filtered as well as under UV lights. Also, the fish have NO TEETH!
I would still want to check out the basic hygiene of any salon before having any treatment done. Would never have it done on the street! The therapists should be asking you health questions before hand too. If they dont, then they havent for other clients, so dont use them.

I was of course only joking about the TEETH

Flyer made me chuckle to myself, but I can see a business opportunity here,as he said someone could arm themselves with a couple of loaves of Warburtons,thick sliced, I'm sure the 15 euros price can be undercut,nice little earner.
