The Tigaki Salt pan is situated right next to the village of Tigkaki, between the villages of Tigaki and Marmari. It covers a large area of roughly 930.000 square meters while 790.000 of those are below sea level at an average depth of -32cms. Bamboo has grown quite thick on the side facing the sea and has offered a protective shield to the area. Cooking salt used to be produced until 1988 but this activity has been abandoned since. The lake has now become a protected area where a lot of birds find shelter. Bird watching has become quite popular and many come to observe the migrating birds as well as the rich local fauna, and even some rare species. The flamingoes are an impressive sight and have made the place famous by their presence. There is a road around the lake shore that is large and I would recommend you take a leisurely walk to explore the sights and maybe enjoy a lovely sunset. That being said on the Eastern side of the Tigaki Salt Pan the ground tends to get boggy so you might not be able to get through without getting wet and/or dirty and you might have to go back from whence you came.
