Tips

  • Trekknik (Niklas)

    The only active Saline La Palmas invites you to admire, geocaching and buying sea salt! An instructional path provides enough reading material and in the restaurant ("themed restaurant") you can taste good craft beer and fish specialties!

    Here is La Palma's South Cape and a beautiful lighthouse. The surf can be huge.
    The salt obtained in the salt pans can be bought at low prices in the Dino supermarkets.

    From Fuencaliente direction El Faro, there meets on the Salinenfelder. Here, salt is produced from the seawater. Depending on the incidence of light, the salt crusts shimmer in beautiful colors. There are several of these saline fields on the island, salt extraction has a long tradition.

    Since 1967, salt has been extracted at the southern tip of the island. The knowledge about it brought Don Luis Rodriguez from Lanzarote to La Palma and made sure that the salt production revived here.
    The salt production happens in the saline of Fuencaliente still completely by hand. The only technical aids are a drying oven, a salt mill and two packaging machines. Almost without exception, it is produced in the summer months, in winter it is hardly possible to win salt on La Palma, the precipitation dilutes in the truest sense of the word again and again the brine. Weather dependence is one of the determining factors in sea salt production. From clean Atlantic water, wind and sun, one of the purest and most indispensable foods.

    Since 1967, salt has been extracted at the southern tip of the island. The salt sold under the name "Sal Teneguia" is at the mercy of fierce competition. Unfortunately, the company stands on wobbly feet.
    The salt production is done by hand. The only aids are a drying oven, a salt mill and two packaging machines. Almost without exception, it is produced in the summer months, in winter the brine is watered down too much by precipitation. The product can be purchased at the top of the small souvenir shop.

    The only saline on the island, which still collects artisanal sea salt. It's worth looking down.

    El Faro. Here you can watch how the salt is processed. It is packaged manually in small dispensers and with a vending machine in bags, which are stacked manually. Packaged Palma salt can be purchased here. There are several of these saline fields on the island, the salt extraction has tradition on La Palma.

    The salt ponds are pink because of salt-loving algae (Dunaliella salina), which give the water a high content of beta-carotene.In addition, small saline crabs (Artemia salina) live in these basins.
