“nice end to the half day island tour”

Pedra Lume Salt Crater
Ranked #2 of 54 things to do in Ilha do Sal
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed April 11, 2013

It's not something I had ever experienced before. There are a few salt pools there most people seem to go to the one on the right as you enter probably because it is deep but it is cold, but you can also go in the shallow one on the left which is nice and warm. Most likely this will be part of your island tour so go prepared with flip-flops, swimwear and towel. You can also walk along to end and back. It's a beautiful setting and i was surprised there were not hoards of people there. I would recommend it...

The salt crater is beautiful. We took an opportunity to swim and floating in salt water in the open nature is something very special, much more interesting than in spa. It was just a little bit unexpected that you need to pay €5 to enter the crater and €1 for shower and it was not included in the ticket for the island tour.

very relaxing just floating around - no need for swim aids for non-swimmers - everyone floats. a bit cold to start with but soon got used to it. quite muddy underfoot but easy to wash off. just don't swallow any of the water as extremely salty!!

Absolutely loved floating in the water - I Do not look any younger though - it must be an old wives tale!!
