Restful and rustic, Salty Towers is conveniently located in town and near the water. Jamie was helpful in making sure we had everything we needed for a comfortable stay.

it is a lovely place where people still communicate with each other, not only with their social media devices. i saw people writing note sin their diary... we left with hugs from people we have never met before and had spent only a cup of coffee in the main kitchen.

This place is very SAFE for solo travelling. I highly recommend it! If you are looking for a place to hear about different stories and meet different people, from artists to engineers, or just to find an escape from cities, this is the place for you!
