Ibiza's Salinas.

Natural Park and History

      Since 1995 the area, which expands on about 28.38 km² of land and over 130.00 km² marine, is part of the “Reserva Natural de Ses Salines”, which in 2001 was declared a Natural Park due to the great richness and biodiversity of its ecosystem. More than 200 bird species have been recorded, including vibrantly colored flamingos who reside in the park throughout the year. 

        The sea salt is primarily composed of sodium chloride. However, as it is not refined in any way, it contains traces of calcium, iodine, magnesium and potassium. The result is superior flavor and a gourmet salt par excellence.

        The interest of the Carthaginians and Romans in the Ibizan Salinas was great; the Carthaginians supplied vast areas of North Africa with salt from Ibiza. For centuries, the export of salt was the main source of income for the island, which made the Salinas from Ibiza one of the most important Salinas of the Mediterranean Sea. Unsurprisingly, it soon earned the titles of “the world’s salt cellar” and “the salt island”.
