Wait staff is the best. Mussels best we have ever eaten. We thought we were going to watch sunset at the museo but found this fantastic and most memorable place in all of Trapani.

I recommend to visit this place. Our guide had broken English but I still learned a lot about the history of salt and salt harvesting process. Their salt is all natural with magnesium, calcium, potassium and iodine. Impressive.

Interesting hours if you not only want to lay in the sand. First time I saw such a factory and was impressed by the size . Recommend to take a walk.

It’s 20 minutes outside Trapani, a city of limited interest. But, where else are you going to seen a salt museum. I bought a bag of it at at least twice what it would cost at Morton’s.
