Salt Pans Malta

The formation process of the salt begins when sea water starts to fill crevices in the coastline. This sea water is left to settle for eight days before it is moved to smaller salt pans that are warmer in temperature and further away from the sea. At the beginning of the drying process the water takes on a reddish hue and salt crystals begin to form. In fact, if you head down to the coast really early in the morning, there’s a chance you can see locals collecting rock salt from the 350-year-old salt pans. There are several salt pans along the Gozitan coast, namely in Qala, Dwejra, and Xlendi.

On the second Picture you can see the Little "sand holes". In this holes, the locals hide themselves from the sun.
Thank you very much for your suggested change. We will check it as soon as possible and update this spot.

Travel information

You can drive directly to this spot. Please notice the scheduled times for the ferry to Gozo, if you are on Malta.

You can buy the Hand crafted salt from several Little Shops. Sure, it is not as cheap as in your local Supermarket - but it is one very good takeaway from Malta!
