Located in Castro Marim, in the Ria Formosa Natural Park, these salt pans have been in this family for over 150 year. Always in artisanal way,without use any chemicals, machines and oils to maintain the salt’s purity.
Flor do Sal is hand-harvested by workers who scrape on the top layer of salt before it sinks to the bottom of the salt pans. As it dries, it forms small sheets that easily crumble between the fingers. Flor do Sal is considered an artisanal food product. Due to its labor-intensive production it is one of the most expensive salts.
In Salt Spa you can pull a sun chair and relax while you enjoy the benefits from the salt pools.
They are a kind of healing waters that preserve mineral elements from the ocean water, including essential traces of magnesium and potassium.
The salt residue softens and hydrates the skin, acting as a natural antiseptic and reliever of pain, tension and stress.
The experience of floating in a salt pool is different of anything that you experience before.
You floats right on the surface, deeper into the water is nearly impossible.
It feels like swimming through air, completely weightless!!
