Tamarin Salt Pans

Visit the last remaining active salt pans at Tamarin Salt Pans

Found at the foot of La Tourelle mountain near the entrance of Tamarin village, Tamarin Salt Pans are a rare sight to behold. These are the last active salt pans on the whole of the island, with workers utilising techniques that haven’t changed in some 200 years to produce nearly 1,500 tons of salt.

As well as getting an insight into the importance of salt to the island and seeing how the salt is harvested, you can visit the small shop. Go early in the morning to see the workers in action. Visitors to the seaside community of Tamarin can also enjoy incredible mountain views.
