The pond of Lavalduc is located at less than 10 meters under the sea level, behind the beaches, between Fos and Port de Bouc. Its richness comes from a high degree of salinity, 4 times higher than that of the sea.
Thanks to this walk, you will discover the secret of its mysterious pink color and the history of this concentration basin, supplying salt to the operators who have succeeded one another since antiquity. With Elodie, conference guide " Reise TripTours ".
