We spent about 2 hours there doing glass blowing (15 mins) + sea salt making (40 mins) + shopping for local produce + enjoying the beautiful sea view. Serene place. My daughters enjoy the experience.

the place gives good view on the ocean and shore. not too much to do with the salt making in fact, just a very small scale facility is show-cased. it carries ceramic-making and glass-making workshop, a place you can plan to spend 40-60 mins.
