Salinas de Teguise, Guatiza

(3.4/5 based on 100+ reviews on the web)
Learn about the natural resource that the island of Lanzarote prospered from with a trip to Salinas de Teguise, the local sea salt flats. Formerly one of the island's most lucrative sources of income, the industry has seen a major decline in recent years as real estate converts the seafront to hotel property. The salt industry flourished before freezing fish at sea became an option; harvested sea salt was used on fishing boats to preserve catches. Visit what remains of this dwindling industry with a trip to the derelict sea flats, where you can still see the long stretches of cordoned off vats. Put Salinas de Teguise at the forefront of your travel plans using our Lanzarote tour planner.

  • An very interesting photo stop much larger than expected it would make a lovely sunset stop for a photo 
  • The sun just reflected off the still flat salt flats. Was speechless. Was actually a surprising find. Stop off on the coastal road for a birds eye view and watch the sunset 
  • Quick visit, light highlighting the site... Maybe also that December is not the best month to enjoy the beauty of the salt mines... Too bad!
