Slave Huts at Pekelmeer Salt Flats

History on the Beach

Save to my Account

These tiny stone huts
across from the salt flats are where African
slaves lived in the 1800s. Step inside one of the empty structures and imagine
up to six men calling it home. When the men got a weekend off, they walked to Rincon on the other end of the island to be with their families. 
Look for the huts at Pekelmeer (Dutch for salt lake), on the far south
end of the island, on the coast road about 9m/14 km south of Kralendijk.
