[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Xwejni Saltpans on Gozoís northern coast just outside the resort of Marsalforn are still used today for the collection of sea salt. Hewn out of the coastal rock, the saltpans were part of the islandís first industry. Centuries ago salt was used as a bartering currency for consumables not available locally. Nowadays, salt collected from the Xwejni Saltpans can be found in most supermarkets on the Maltese Islands. The Salt Pans form an incredible backdrop for an elegant dinner under the stars or a team lunch after a diving session as Xwejni is also a popular dive site for beginners.
