The salt pans stretching southeast of Ston are thought to be among the oldest in the Mediterranean, in more or less constant use for 4000 years. The basic method of production hasn’t radically changed since the Middle Ages – the pans fill with seawater, which evaporates in the summer heat, leaving a residue of salt that is then shovelled manually into barrows. There are three basins for the production of domestic kitchen salt; two for industrial salt. Visitoreager for a bit of manual labour can join the Gathering Salt Summer Camp between July and September – and although the working day for volunteers is relatively short, it does start at 6am sharp.
