Highlights: Salt production happens under palm trees swaying in the peaceful wind on the beach. The sand that has been saturated from the sea water will be taken to the salt making hut and then it will be washed in more sea water. The salt water will be poured into a trough made of palm trees. The salt water will be evaporated and leave the salt to dry up and the farmers collect the salt and transfer it to the basket and then it will be packed and sold.
