St John’s Sea Salt
St John’s Salt Pond is located on the southeast side of the island and is the only point on the island that is below sea level. During the summer months the locals harvest salt from the pond that forms around the edges. The water gets into the pond by seeping under the ground from the ocean; with the combination of heat and strong easterly trade winds the water evaporates to create a healthy source of sea salt. The sea salt has a great flavor and is full of natural minerals. People also love to cover themselves in the black mud found at the bottom of the pond for a mud bath.
