Just past Qbajjar bay, on the north coast of Gozo, 350-year-old salt pans at Xwejni Bay stretch about three kilometres along the coast. The production of sea salt has a long tradition in Gozo and the saltpans found here are still used today. Locals can still be seen scraping up the crystals of salt during the summer months. Once collected, the salt is stored and processed and packaged by hand in the caves that have been carved into the coastal rock. Furthermore these salt pans are incredibly picturesque and a perfect spot to get a scenic snap.
