I took a tour with my friend this past weekend. We were on a search for a place to buy flor de sal for a friend at home. The gift shop filled the bill - but we also found that there is an hour long tour of the production process that we stayed for. The guide was very good, multilingual, and very educational. It may not sound interesting - but if you're a bit of a foodie you may enjoy this. Tours are scheduled so you might call in advance to find out the times. We were an hour early and had a nice coffee at the gift shop before the tour.

A very enjoyable visit to see how salt is ‘harvested’ and turned into salt as we know it. A very friendly, knowledgeable young lady showed us round and explained the process very well. It realty was very interesting and worth experiencing.

We wanted to visit it but after several call to try to book a visit (which are very poor during the week) and no answer. We decide to come, you can’t have access to the Salina without a booked visit but you have access to a great boutique where you can buy product and have a coffee break if you want !

I usually take various guest that come to visit us to this place. It has a wealth of information of local flora and fauna that are well explained the guided tour. In the gift shop are some nice treats available, especially the different salts are a lovely treat.

Interesting tour ( you can get the times from their website ) Price is 8 euro pp with reduction for children. Attractive little shop for unusual presents to take home.
Saw the flamingoes , but from a distance.

We've been regular visitors to Mallorca for a few years and we always take Flor de Sal d'Es Trenc home with us for friends and family. We'd visited the shop at the Salinas before, but had never managed to take the tour, but wanted to rectify that this year.

We arrived in time to take the 11am tour and, because a large coach party was already taking a tour, a member of staff quickly put together a tour for us. As it turns out, they'll conduct private tours whenever the need arises, which is very accommodating! 8€ per adult and the kids (eldest was 5 years old) were free - very good value indeed!

We were advised to slather on the suncream and it's good advice - you'll be out in the Mallorcan sun for a good 45 minutes to an hour with no shade. High temperatures and light breeze are perfect for harvesting salt, but not so good for your skin...

We were shown around the different production areas, told about the biodiversity and ecology of the wetlands and saw how the flor de sal was painstakingly harvested from the 600 pools created for the last stage of evaporation. The salt mountains were impressive sights, as were the large pools for the earlier stages of evaporation.

Having mentioned the biodiversity, we saw the tiny prawns that the flamingos come and feast on, and as other reviewers have mentioned, it is the red colouring in the prawns that gives the flamingos their reddish-pink hue. Numerous other birds were in evidence and it was good to see respect for nature in a large-scale production process.

As you might guess, we learned a lot through the tour, and gained a new appreciation for the salt that we'd been enjoying over the last few years. It's a great-tasting product (you can try all the different types in the little shop) and it's an impressive operation. Their salted caramel ice cream (made with their salt, naturally), is a welcome bit of relief after the heat, and is very reasonably priced in what is a touristy area - 12€ for two ice creams and three drinks.

Please note that photography is permitted in all areas except the last, where their highest grade salt is harvested by hand - the flor de sal that has made the company so famous, and guides will happily take family photos for you.

Go and spend an hour or so there - you won't regret it!

apparently salt has been harvested here for over 2000 years with a trench (trenc) from the sea being let into a very large number of pans before various procedures take place to evaporate the water leaving the salt behind. Amazing to see and hear about different grades of salt from that used on icy roads to table salt and what I had never seen before various flavoured salt. An educational visit highly recommended. Did you know why flamingos were red? apparently they winter here and feed on tiny red prawns hence they turn red - good quiz answer eh? surprisingly excellent visit

Po příjezdu na místo jsme měli měli smůlu, otevřen byl pouze obchůdek , kde bylo možné zakoupení místních produktů a dát si kávu. Prohlídka s průvodcem tedy nebyla ale počasí nám přálo, a tak jsme jeli na nedalekou pláž. Návštěvy takových destinací v době kdy není sezona jsou občas nevýhodou. Prý tady bývají krásné západy slunce. Tak snad někdy jindy.

After arriving at the place, we were unlucky, only a shop where you could buy local products and have coffee. Guided tour was not the weather, however, so we drove to a nearby beach. Visits to such destinations when there is no season are sometimes a disadvantage. There are beautiful sunsets here. So sometimes some other time.

The mountains of salt are breath-taking, fascinating especially in the sunshine. We did not take the tour, but you can see a lot without it, just walking around. The little souvenir shop cum cafe is very pleasant, especially if you sip your coffee outside . The only disappointment was that they do not sell postcards - they used to, the barman said, and sounded sorry for that. There is a short ride to a nearby beach, which is fantastic.

We visited on a sunny dry but very windy day. There were four of us one of whom was not able to walk easily and had a buggy but the guide suggested the surface was not suitable for it. On walking around the site I thought the buggy we had would have coped but we erred on the side of caution.

The visit is entirely outside so on a wet day it would be not be so pleasant. The tour we had had just 5 people and the guide. We were all English and so the talk was in English and very easy to understand. We had about 50 minutes around the site looking at the salt evaporating process. This was simply described by the guide and also enhanced by the information boards around the site.

Another point of interest was the bird life on some of the ponds that in January included Greater Flamingo and a variety of smaller water fowl and ducks.

The charge was 4 Euros per person and as we finished another group were gathering - these people were all German so I assume the tour guide would also be able to give the information in German as well as English and Spanish.
