Saltpans Gozo

On the north coast of Gozo, just past Qbajjar Bay west of Marsalforn, the coast is characterised by a chequerboard of rock-cut saltpans protruding into the sea. these 350 years old and extending over nearly 3 km, the salt marshes are an integral part of the landscape. They continue to be exploited by a generation of families between May and September, the period of the salt harvest. You will usually find vendors on the side of the road.
