DescriptionWe will pick you up from your hotel in Santa Maria, Murdeira or Espargos, and drive to our first destination of the day, the eastern part of the island to visit Shark Bay and see its famous lemon sharks up close. Here you will enjoy 30 minutes watching the lemon sharks swimming around you, an amazing experience that you will write about on your way back home. Afterwards we will visit the village of Pedra de Lume, which was the first settlement on the island of Sal. Here we'll see its ancient dwellings and learn about the importance of the salt industry for the development of the island through objects and instruments used to extract the salt. We will visit the cable car that was once used to transport the salt extracted from Salinas. The highlight of the tour is a visit to the Salinas salt lake, the only salt lake in the world located in the caldera of a dormant volcano. You will be impressed by the variety of colours of the landscape. Salinas serves to forget the stress of everyday life, not having to leave the island without bathing in the saline thermal water, where Spas, whirlpool and relaxation are available to all. The medicinal action of its salty waters is recognised for its healing, detoxifying and metabolic-stimulating power due to the mineral substances contained there. In the popular knowledge there is an even greater healing power in this water. The place has a fascinating lake where anyone can bathe and float even without knowing how to swim. Finally, we will be back at your hotel in Santa Maria at 5 pm.
