Owia Salt Pond Day Tour
Many compare this salt pond to an outdoor aquarium. Reef fish often make their way into the pond, and there are even formations of coral that may grow here. The small fishing village of Owia is close by and is the home of the Black Caribs, one of the two groups of indigenous people on St Vincent. Reaching the Owia Salt Pond involves going down a long flight of wooden steps after parking in the lot at the top of the cliff. The Owia Salt Pond has been used for therapeutic purposes in the past, and bathing is still allowed in the pond today. Enjoy this 5 hour, small group tour in St Vincent.
