Woody

While it doesn't look like much (just pools with salt and water) it is quite interesting to have a tour around the salt pans in Tamarin. The tour is really good with loads of information about the history but also how they actually get the salt out of the sea water. We didn't know for instance that when it rains the salt turns brown an can only be used in agriculture.

Lyman

4.6/5.0

A very interesting look at how salt is traditionally harvested. Best to visit in the mornings when salt is being collected - there is most activity in the summer (November-February). Good value for money.

4.8/5.0

We found a nice and quiet spot at Grand bay, and spent a good half day there. It was a bliss to simply relax and enjoy the sun, and the sandy beach!!! The water was clean and just perfect. Strongly recommend.

Flora

We were staying on the windy north coast so traveled up here after a recommendation. We weren't disappointed, it was such a lovely beach and perfect for young children. Would definitely go back if I return to this beautiful island!
