Las Salinas is a salt lake located near Yaiza Town, in Lanzarote Island. It is a salt lake, which you can do a guided visit to know the history and the methods of purification and extract salt from sea water. It was really very interesting. In the guided visit, you can see on the place and see wonderful views of salt lakes and the historical buildings used during centuries to extract salt. Also at the end of the visit, we could do a tasting experience with salts with different flavours and local white wine. Really, a fantastic place. Near the main building, where nowadays there is the shop, you can see a wonderful statue to remember the salt workers and inside this building, you can see mountains of salt.
On the other hand, when I arrived there, they did not know that I had booked a guided visit in internet, so I had to wait one hour to begin it (I went to Yaiza to breakfast in a very good bar called 7 Hojas). The wait was worth it (and the breakfast too)!

We have visited the island many times and never had the opportunity to visit Las Salinas. We finally managed it and our tour guide, Martin, gave us a brilliant tour - his english was great and his enthusiasm for it all really made it special. Really glad we got a chance to do this and finally understand how it all works.

We have been to most of the Canary Islands, to some of them more than once. Each of them has its own characteristic, its own charm. However, Lanzarote – we have been there for the 3rd time – is something special.
Do not go if you are looking for white sand beaches and peaceful sea. Lanzarote is a magic island for those, who can enjoy and appreciate the bizarre landscape of dark lava fields with volcanic hills on the horizon. The most famous one is the Timanfaya in the Montañas Del Fuego. To protect the unique volcanic scenery the Timanfaya region has become part of the protected national park.
The architect and great artists – César Manrique - has strongly influenced the character of the island and helped to maintain its traditions. Some of the “footprints” of his magnificent works can be listed as follows:
• Fondacion César Manrique
• MIAC – Castillo de San José
• Monumento al Campesino
• Jardín de Cactus
• Jameos del Agua
• Cueva de Los Verdes
• Mirador del Rio
• Museo César Manrique in Haria
César Manrique has combined as no one before the art and the nature. It is worthwhile to see some of his works when on the island.

It is a good idea to visit the mines at evening time, when the sun reflects in the pools as the water evaporates and produces such a variety of different shades, all of great beauty, one that a photographer cannot but immortalize.

Some of the photos here are actually from Salinas janubio, but the jist is the same.
Good views of a small industry in action, and very different from the set ups in Tunisia or Southern France.
Free to look at, and great photos to be taken.
You can buy little bags of salt to take home.

If you want to see how the salt gets into your plate from the ocean than you definitely have to stop here! The view is spectacular, the light and the ocean provides different images each minute - great for photographers!

Also, you should buy salt to take home - i did and it tastes great, plus it's BIO, ECO :)

For us, it was a very nice experience :)

Just outside Playa Blanca, the salt pans at Salinas make for a fab stop for some unusual photographs, particularly if you've ever wondered how salt is produced! Not much else to do but the views are memorable!

Not too much here, but is free and there is a couple of car parks to stop and have a look. Sea water evaporating flats result in an interesting view and is worth combing with other attractions on the south coast.

A fascinating explanation of how salt is extracted from sea water using traditional techniques. This is how artisinal food producers should do tours! Our guide, Martin, was knowledgeable and passionate about the process, its history and the traditions it maintains.
