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. Kusamba is notable however for its traditional salt farms that date back almost a thousand years. The salt farms are run by the local villagers who also make their living from fishing. On clear mornings, you will 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, which are then scraped off, collected and brought inside huts for the filtration processes. Besides witnessing the techniques, you can also bargain and purchase packets of salt directly from the farmers for a very reasonable price. For comparison, a half-kilogram packet sells for around IDR 25,000 (under USD 2) at the supermarkets.
