“Interesting place”

Pedra Lume Salt Crater
Ranked #8 of 54 things to do in Ilha do Sal
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 22 November 2013

Strange feeling to walk through a narrow tunnel to get into a volcanic crater filled with salt! Lots of people swimming in the salty water. And maybe the only place on the island without any wind!

Be warned the further out that you go the more you will feel the water is possibly in excess of 60 degrees near your toes, seemingly there is geothermal activity! Really clean 5 euro entrance fee. Don't bother with a shower afterwards the salt on your skin is worth a fortune. Simply take a bottle of water to rise your eyes and mouth afterwards.

The moonlight landscape is something quite different and equally as good as the 'Blue hole'. Aside from 3 other tourists on our bus, we were the only ones swimming #exclusivesalination

Great experience, don't forget flip flops as very Stoney,,, very relaxing and great for skin although a little pongy! Wear factor 50 as water and salt intensifies the suns rays and you will burn. I if you have any scratches or cuts it will sting and they only recommend staying in for 10 mins. It costs 5 euros for entry and extra 1 euro if you want to shower

You just don't go to the salt crater you see some of Sal island its very beautiful, the blue eye is very good, you pass through villages and go by lone huts, its such an eye opener to people who have not seen things like tis before
