  • Visit salins to do again, or to c is very informative because the visit is commented on the history and know-how of the salt of the brand whale and wildlife and flora on these basins with a stop at the Museum of the salt with the possibility of buying different gifts from manufactured salt on site during your visit you have a breathtaking view of the ramparts as well on this extended plain and the sea.

  • A try, or renew, the visit of the Salins is always a pleasure, whether in couple, between friends or family, with children... The scenery changes according to the seasons and the activity, the flora and fauna are always a delight. PS: pS: attention attention to mosquitoes following the seasons, take precautions (as in all of the Camargue)
