Learn about the natural resource that the island of Lanzarote prospered from with a trip to Las Salinas, 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.

    Splendid! A riot of colors: white, black, red and green lava plants! Exciting walk in between!

    It was one of the places that I included in my tour around the island because it is a place that shows the traditions of the island. Too bad that when I was half of the salinas seemed abandoned which I did not like because I think they are traditions that must be maintained to teach new generations. OS I recommend you do a tour of the perimeter of the same drive after visiting them to see how big that ysu structure from another point of view and if you want you can stop at the restaurant that is overlooking them even for a coffee because to eat to my found me it a little expensive.
