We were staying with friends recently in Aigues Mortes and and biked it down to the Salins on the way into Le Grau-du-Roi. We considered riding the bikes around the site but decided instead to take the "train". This proved to be a wise decision...More

We passed this site with our tour bus. Too bad that we had not the time to explore it. It was still a fantastic and colorful view even from the bus window.

This is more a golden (or euro) mine than a salt one. At the end, people come here to buy salt and end up to pay to see how salt is produced and some rusty machineries, by paying expensive entrance tickets (adult by foot €15,...More

A must see if you are in Camargue. The Salin or salt marshes are still supporting the local economy even if in a diminished role. The Salin offers vast spaces, pink flamingoes and other wildlife, vibrant colors and serenity.

As other reviews have said - interesting and strangely beautiful but would have liked an english audio commentary. The french guide was clearly imparting lots of interesting info that wasn't on our English sheets. The train stops for a climb up the salt hill and...More

Nature never seems to amaze me. Salin d'Aigues-Mortes brings pink to a whole new level. It is somewhat mesmerizing. Even my teenagers enjoyed the tour. It was educational to learn about how the salt is mined from this region.
