Drive out to the historical salt flats at Pekelmeer and take in the surreal sights and beautiful flamingos that live here in santuary. Observe the miniature snow white mountains of salt, set against a bright blue sky and the vibrant bright pink of the crystallization ponds. Witness foaming drifts undulating by the road and kite surfers leaping from the sea nearby. Be sure to check out the former slave huts on the beaches and get a sense of the living conditions of those who worked here. Don't forget to bring your camera to capture the bizarre vistas on show.
