THE SALT SEA OF PEDRA LUME

The town of Pedra Lume’s main claim to fame is a volcanic crater filled with what’s known as the ‘salt sea’. Sal means ‘salt’ in Portuguese, and the island was an important source of this precious mineral during colonial times. Nowadays, the salt sea is the perfect spot for a relaxing float, the warm pools are saltier than the Dead Sea, so it’s practically impossible to sink.
