It's well worth the drive out through the lava fields to see this place. It's obvious to see it's a dying industry but it's still spectacular to see what is quite a spectacle. Lot's of photo opportunities and other places to visit on the way.

This might be a very interesting place, since already the ancient civilications produced salt that way. Of course nowadays, it can't economically compete with the world market of industrial produced salt... so it is only run to show how it was done in earlier times....More

This is well worth a visit to see salt being produced from sea water, in pools that gradually allow the water to evaporate in the harsh sun in centuries old lagoos, well worth a visit to see something so unusual..... and it is free.

Salt mining and a interesting place to visit although not sure if you could drive down to the actual place where the salt is heaped up and drying out.

We were there October 2009. The salina is amazing - so simple way to get salt but so brilliant. You can find some crystals of salt and gypsum. On the beach tones of peridotes and vpulcanic bombs - so if you take hammer you will...More

This beach is not for sunbathing as there are hard rocks and stones. But the beaches in this part of the island have naturally occurring peridot. So for anyone, particularly kids this is a great trip to collect little bits or even big bits as...More
