The last place in Mauritius to produce salt by the traditional method, the Tamarin Salt Pans is a place rich in local culture and history. Although all the current modern methods of producing salt, Tamarin salt pans still accounts for about a third of the salt produced in Mauritius.
The salt water is pumped from the sea into large basins covering an area of 30 hectares where they are then left to evaporate. In the early mornings and evenings, experiences workers come and collect the salt cubes before they are crushed into smaller pieces if needed and packaged for use.
