  Final stage
by kyoub

On the inland side of the island, before you reach the salt hills, you will see several shallow bogs. These bogs range in color from green, to brownish, to near pink.
These are the salt pans where sea water is realeased from the sea. The water evaporates, leaving salt behind. The different colors represent the stages of evaporation with the pinkish one being the final stage.
