Tranquility Salt Cave is a hidden gem that people have traveled across the country — and even across the world — to visit. Here’s why it’s worth a visit for you, too.

Cave quick-hitters

  • The cave, located at 30 Dillmont Dr., is made of 10,000 pounds of non-toxic Himalayan rock salt boulders imported from India and Pakistan.
  • Co-owner Leslie Dahn said she created the salt cave to help others feel relaxed, unplug, and be calm.
  • As you sit in the cave with relaxing music playing overhead, pure salt is diffused into the salt cave, which Dahn says removes toxins from the air you breathe.

Salty testimonials

Dahn said many clients have reported the following after their visits:
