Sea salt harvesting in October 2014

Harvesting the salt pans in the Ria Formosa near Faro airport

The salt pans of the Ria Formosa extend to both sides of the Faro International Airport. Now in October the season of harvesting the "White Gold" of the Algarve is almost closed. When walking our dogs we observed workers sacking the sea salt for transportation.
