Salinas Salt Mines, Cape Verde

You will be encouraged to go for a dip in one of the salt lakes, and experience the feeling of the dead sea – you won’t sink. The salt and minerals in the water are good for your skin too.

I had my swimsuit on under my clothes, fully intending to get in, but it was just too windy and cold down there. The water was warm but it would have been like getting out of the bath into a freezing cold room – call me a wimp but I just could’t do it. ย I’m sure there’ll be a salt lake somewhere else in the world or on a warmer visit to Cape Verde in the future – that’s when I’ll do it!
