The island of Sal earns its Portuguese name from its principal commodity, Salt. It was once home to the world's largest salt mine at Pedra de Lume. Salt is still produced in several areas of the island. Sal is probably the oldest of all the Cape Verdean islands, owing its existence to a volcanic eruption 50 million years ago. The principal attractions on Sal are the unspoilt beaches, the lovely sea and of course the year-round sunshine. It is fantastic for water sports, sunbathing and swimming.
