Pedra Lume Salt Crater, Ilha do Sal

4.2
Even if you don't know how to swim, you'll likely stay afloat at Pedra Lume Salt Crater, an extinct volcano filled with salty seawater. With its base lying beneath the sea level, the caldera creates a lake with many artificial salt evaporation ponds. Discovered in 1640 and in operation until the 1990s, these salterns played an important role in the area's salt mining industry--today, they represent a major tourist attraction.
