Fodor's Review

In its heyday, Salt Cay was definitely economically strong, one of the wealthiest islands in the Caribbean because of its salt. Now Haidee, the wife of Porter Williams of Island Thyme, lovingly prepares the native salt in colored bottles of different forms so that visitors may purchase them as a keepsake; use it in your bath or for your margaritas! You can buy them at their place, as well as in a variety of shops throughout the country. Keep your eyes open for them.
