#3 Gozo Salt Pans: Embrace the Magic of Tradition
On the northern coast of Gozo, an enchanting checkerboard of rock-cut saltpans stretches into the sea. These saltpans, over 350 years old, not only offer a stunning scenic view but also hold a deep connection to Gozitan tradition.
For centuries, certain families have passed down the art of sea-salt production in this region. During the summer months, locals can still be seen collecting the crystals of salt. The salt is then stored and processed in caves carved into the coastal rock, adding a historical and cultural dimension to this picturesque setting.
Your guests can savor a casual picnic by day or indulge in a Gala under the stars in this idyllic ambiance, creating memories that will last a lifetime.
From wine-tasting amidst panoramic vineyards to Champagne surprises at sea and the timeless traditions of the Gozo salt pans, Malta offers a kaleidoscope of daytime experiences.
