Parked in car park off Via Don Giordi (free to park and enter). Rented bikes from the bar just inside entrance (3€ for 1 hour). Nice easy cycling tracks. Due to time of year (August) not much to see, only a few flamingos.

I walked over from the city. Mostly good trails, but at the end I got stuck between roads, channels and inaccessable terrain. But if you can work out the logistics ... off you go.

I walked here from the city, although buses are available. The ticket office staff were helpful (it is free entrance) and on a riany day there were not mmany flamingoes to be seen. But a lovely walk, and I included a trip to the beach.

We visited the park today late morning. We found the main entrance relatively easily with the sat nav. Once there we were welcomed by a nice lady who explained the routes available and sorted us out with bikes. The bikes had seen better days and...More
