Las Salinas is a salt lagoon. This saltwater lake originated by Calp’s salt mines. Those mines were used to preserve the fish caught in Calp.
This place has been used for salt harvest since Roman times. The operation of salt continued until 1988.
Today, the fishing is sold at the end of the afternoon on an auction. This fish auction is definitely a must see.
The saltwater lake Las Salinas de Calp is a protected nature reserve, where many live different bird species live (173 species) and also a colony of flamingos.
Several wooden trails have been built, making it possible the birds can be viewed on fairly small distance .
