Seven Bali Holidays

Kusamba Beach

House of Traditional Salt Farming

Kusamba Beach is one of the numerous serene and exotic black-sand beaches found in East Bali. It's known for its historic salt farms, which stretch back nearly a thousand years. Local villagers, who also make a living from fishing, manage the crops. Local fisherman can generally be seen going about their daily routines, preparing their nets and working together to haul their jukung (wooden outriggers) out to sea on clear mornings. In the meantime, another crew is generally working extracting salt from neighbouring plots.

Salt farmers often catch seawater in palm leaf buckets on carrying poles at Kusamba Beach, then splash it out onto the smoothened black sand beneath the hot heat. After several hours of drying, the salt begins to crystallize. The salt crystals are then scraped off, collected, and transported to huts for filtration. You can also haggle for and purchase packets of salt directly from the farmers for extremely reasonable costs, in addition to observing the procedures.
