A must stop and see where slaves had to live that worked in the salt mines. Sad. Wish they had more history posted for reading.

We stopped off to look around as part of an island tour witHerberdt taxi. Such small houses with such a sad history, poor people who would have to live in such a small house. A beautiful beach to see too

To see this location, in a barren, hot land, you realise what a hard life the slaves and locals had. Horrific.

It's worth a quick stop to see these if you are driving by. I don't think I'd make a special trip to these white slave huts unless you're really a history buff, or unless this is something you are extremely interested in seeing, in which...More
