It's a very easy walk from Playa del Castillo to Las Salinas. It takes about 1 hour to reach las Salinas-Fuerteventura Salt Pans.
If you are lucky you can watch some men working on the pans gathering and packing the salt. The water in the pans is rosy. Interesting but I was not able to find it out.
A Salt Museum can give you some more information about the salt gathering.. If you're interested in the salt gathering you should not miss it.
There is another attraction as well: a skeleton of a whale that beached here.
