Unique addition to the town of Calpe. How many places can boast their own salt-flat nature reserve with resident flamingos? Well worth a meander to look at the lanky birds in their chosen abode.A bit scrubby looking and the water's an opaque murky green colour,...More

We stopped to have a look at the flamingoes. There is a walking trail although it isn’t an attractive area to be in (lots of garbage and the lake sits right beside the main strip through Calpe). The flamingoes themselves are interesting to watch but...More

What an amazing place to see wild flamingoes! A large salt lake on the outskirts of Calpe. Sometimes there are more flamingoes than others. We walked past it most days on our way into town.

An interesting salt water lake that is salinated for ecological reasons. Plenty of bird life to see. Plenty of places to sit and view.

We were walking to the old town & noticed the signs on the main road. Luckily the flamingos were in so we were able to take pictures. If not there is nothing else to see.

The walk is generally flat but can be a bit uneven underfoot the lake is at the side of the road though, so easily accessible. I'm not sure what wildlife will be there at time of year.
