Salt Pans

The northern coast of Gozo provides a fascinating introduction to one of the most important traditions on the island: sea-salt production.

This three-kilometer stretch of 350-year-old rock-cut salt pans is a tourist attraction in its own right, but the salt pans remain a vital source of income for Gozitans. In the summer, locals scrape up the salt crystals and store them in nearby caves. Several local businesses package the salt in gift jars available to purchase from the island's souvenir stores.
