At the small almost deserted village of Pedra de Lume, on the east coast of the island of Sal, you can see the remains of the former salt mining equipment and cable car at the foot of the large crater. The crater is filled with a salt lake, which you can access via a tunnel and float effortlessly in the buoyant and mineral rich waters; although you might want to wear something on your feet as the bottom is covered with salt crystals. There is even a cafe inside where you can shower and take lunch.
