Kusamba Beach and Traditional Salt Farms

Traditional Salt Harvesting Beach in East Bali

Kusamba Beach is one of East Bali’s many tranquil and exotic black sand beaches. It stands outs for its traditional salt farms, which date back almost 1,000 years. The salt farms are run by the local villagers who also make their living from fishing. On clear mornings, you’ll usually be able to catch a glimpse of the local fishermen going about their daily routines, preparing their nets and working together to haul their wooden jukung outriggers out to sea. Meanwhile, other locals will usually be busy harvesting salt at plots nearby.

Salt farming at Kusamba Beach

At Kusamba Beach, you’ll find the salt farmers repetitively fetching seawater in palm leaf buckets on carrying poles, then splashing them out onto the smoothened black sand under the scorching sun. The salt begins to crystallise after several hours of drying. The salt crystals are then scraped off, collected and brought inside huts for the filtration processes. Besides witnessing the techniques, you can also bargain for and purchase packets of salt directly from the farmers for very reasonable prices. For comparison, a 500g packet sells for around Rp 25,000 at the supermarkets.
