The two towns also have their own treasures that should not be missed. San Pedro, for example, due to the high salinity and mineral concentration of the waters, has become an ideal place for mud baths. In the area of Las Charcas, it is common to see bathers affected by rheumatism or arthritis drying themselves in the sun after a rejuvenating bath of mud extracted from the seabed. Salt and its industry is part of the traditional way of life in this area since the Roman times.

There, the Spanish are living and come for holiday and they live the way they have always lived. Quaint coffee shops, good restaurants and interesting days out will make sure you are never bored. It is well worth to visit the saltwater reserve and don’t miss the small harbour where you easily can spend an afternoon in the sun with a cold beer in front of you. And if you are into water sports, you have come to the perfect place.
