About

Genuine 100% natural solar evaporated Coromandel Sea Salt

Each luscious crystal of Opito Bay sea salt has been carefully crafted through the combination of our three key ingredients sunshine + patience + love. After gathering pure sea water from one of Coromandel’s iconic beaches, the pristine Opito Bay.

We settle, filter and carefully solar evaporate our salt in small batches to create big, translucent crystals which bring out the coast’s unique minerality. Then we lovingly harvest each grain and package in environmentally sustainable packaging to retain its quality. The result is an authentic and delicious premium finishing salt with a satisfying soft crunch that melts on your tongue delivering a well-balanced salty-minerally kick.  

We love to pair our special sea salt with local ingredients that complement its delicious character.

Opito Bay Salt can be purchased online via our shop or at one of our many resellers around The Coromandel.
