Beautiful to walk around but you cannot bathe in it

Just thought I should update reviews on this area. You are no longer allowed to bathe or swim in these lakes. You will face a large fine if they catch you doing so.

Visit To Salinas By Salt Train
Sep 2020
Visited the Salinas with a Friend in September 2020.
We Travelled to the Salinas on the Salt Train and there was Information about the Salt Works in English as We travelled on the Train. There was a Guide who got on the Train as We reached the Salt Works and She explained All about when the Salinas started.
We were Allowed of the Train to climb Salt Hill then a Visit to Kiosk to Buy Jars or Packets of Salt with Garlic, Herbs etc.
The Trip lasted Approximately 1 Hour and was very Informative. definately Worth a Visit.

So, those who complain about the lack of pink its all to do with the algae and bacteria balance and stress its under. Right now its low, so not too pink. Also brighter sun is good. Tip for taking pictures is to press water part of photo frame so camera or phone focuses on this and not the people. Brings it up pinker. Sad to see a lot of folk bathing and disrespecting - they are killing the algae... theres a reason for this restriction. Very beautiful place. Look for San Luis residence turn off on road near Mercadona supermarket... fir roadside near entrance.

Train to salt lake a
Aug 2020 • Family
We were looking for things to do with young kids in a time of covid. Kids liked the train and a nice lady hopped on when we reached the Salinas and gave us a few facts. Saw a few flamingos and saw the only true pink lake with edible grade salt. We climbed a little salt mountain and bought some salt when she changed hats and opened her gift shop.
Only drawback was the diesel fume spewing tractor pulling us. Seemed a bit out of keeping with the whole natural reserve

Avoid. Smelly and dirty!
Aug 2020 • Family
We drove over an hour to see the lake and were so very, very, very disappointed ... first it wasn’t pink, it was brown ... second the smell was somewhere between a hamster cage and a men’s urinal ... third there was trash everywhere, it was like walking through a waste dump - beer cans, two plastic chairs that had been abandoned and sunk deep into the mud, baby wipes and - yes - poo in a piece of toilet paper right there on the path leading to the lake.

Just nasty. Avoid and go somewhere, anywhere else!

unique

There is a blue lake and a pink lake in Torrevieja, both part of the slat industry. You can park up and clamber across to the lake. People cover themselves in mud, allow it to dry, then wash off in the salty waters; claiming health benefits. Beware: some people are sensitive to the salt water and it can be painful. Take a large bottle of water with you to wash off pained legs. Also the white salt shore is very slippy and you must walk with care. The walk to the lake is not advised for people of limited mobility. Note: you will see a lot of snails on the bushes, this is a unique species to the lake area.

Not as advertised

Dull muddy very slight tinge of pink from a certain angle at a distance. Grubby surroundings - I guess they're not bothered about visitors in the winter - although there were quite a lot of disgruntled tourists there.

Do not go! Waste of time!

Every pic of this lake is Photoshopped to hell. Drove from Alicante to here (1 hour) and it's a dirty brown puddle that smells of pee. Honestly it would have been more fun to watch paint dry. Ultimate let down. Wouldn't even give it 1 star.
