An interesting visitors center describes the history behind local sea salt production as well as today's business. Products - not only table salt - are available from the shop. An outdoor stall selling pancakes is open in high-season

Nice place to visit with kids. Bad that they close down the kiosk so early. Remember to buy salt there during the visit!
