Island Treasure: Salina do Porto Inglés

The largest lake of salt in Cape Verde. A reminder of Maio’s past as salt supplier for Brazil, but still used today. As local women work to make salt for the local market, little conical piles of salt appear. Surrounded by dunes and desert,  the salina is an important breeding and feeding habitat for birds.
