This is a beautiful drive to do. I had heard that there aren't many flamingoes anymore, but we saw plenty of them, literally around every turn in the road.

Perfect place to watch flamingos. You have the perfect shots if you are interested in taking pictures of the flamingos! Take some drink and chips in the car because you will be there some time. Impressive!

This is on the northwest side of the island by the power plant. we did see a few Flamingos but not like the south of the island. This is the quiet side of the island with minimal traffic and people.

This was a beautiful spot to see the flamingos. You can see this Lake Gotomeer from two different spots. It's worth going to see.

For photos it would be better in the morning because the sun is harsh in the evening. You also can’t really see the sun set. It is a great place to watch the flamingos eat and preen and swim. Well worth the drive.

Not really sure there is a best time. We were there midday and saw plenty.
