The Xwejni salt pans in the north of Gozo, just past Qbajjar Bay, tell a story of the ages.

The Gozitan rock is cut and chequered with a series of salt pans right onto the rock bay onto the sea. The 350-year-old salt pans, which stretch for about 3 kilometres along the coast, are both beautiful and bountiful.

Part of the local tradition among the locals living nearby is to literally scrape crystals of sea salt that collects in the pans throughout the summer months.

One family, the Cini family, were filmed doing exactly that in a great video uploaded by The Weather Page Malta.

Once the salt crystals are collected, the salt is taken to some nearby caves to be stored and processed. The sea salt they produce is truly a local Gozitan product, made by locals using local resources – and we couldn’t be any prouder.
