we were driving to pink sand beach and other snorkeling and came across the salt mountains we had read about . it's very close to the some snorkeling places and the slave huts. We came during rainy season and snorkeled in the light rain .. the snorkeling was good.

You can see from a distance the saltmountains but around you have the lake in pink and blue. Amazing view ! The drive in the south of the island is great and you can see the difference between the see on both sides of the island.
