Even today, this area is still used to win salt from the sea by a process of evaporation. Salinas salt, also knows as Ibiza’s “white gold”, is considered to be one of the world’s finest varieties of salt and currently a major export product.
The Las Salinas beach is home to some of the most popular beach clubs on the island, and offers a very entertaining environment for all ages.
Beautiful white sand, clear waters, and a wide selection of water sports can be found here. There are plenty of sun bed and lounge services around, with table service, live music and DJ’s playing.
