Hike and Bike - "Zoutpannen" Salt Plains

On Curacao, there are three immense salt plains. These “Salinjas / Zoutpannen” were used for the harvest of sea salt. There often are extensive plains where you can still see the dry salt, this looks similar to a snow plain. The dams that helped vaporize the water, which resulted in the salt, can still be seen. When hiking around the salt plains lots of animals can be seen. There is a significant population of flamingos, many crabs, and many water birds. Furthermore, you can see beautiful mangrove trees, which you can recognize on their above-ground roots. The salt plains can be found at Jan Thiel, St. Michiel, and St. Willibrordus.

“We booked a town house in Curaçao through Coral and Coco. The host was friendly right from the moment we made the booking. The house was clean and warm and the customer service we received from Coral and Coco was amazing. I will definitely use them again.”
