A device for desalting sea or brackish water using solar energy, characterized by the fact that it includes two adjacent canals or equivalent structures fed with the sea or brackish water, a green house type structure over one of the canals to vaporize water from it and a structure for condensation of water and for collecting softwater, the structure being in communication with the greenhouse structure and largely immersed in the other canal, which acts as the cold source for the condensating unit.
