Slave Huts

Fodor's Review

The salt industry's history is revealed in Rode Pan, the site of two groups of tiny slave huts. The white huts is on the right side of the road, opposite the salt flats; the second grouping, called the red slave huts stretches across the road toward the island's southern tip. During the 19th century, slaves working the salt pans by day and slept in the cramped huts. Each Friday afternoon they walked seven hours to Rincon to weekend with their families, returning each Sunday. The Red Slave area is a popular dive spot during low wind and calm seas. When the wind is strong and waves prevail, the local windsurf posse heads to Red Slave to catch the swell.
