Better to come in winter time when the lake has water if you want to see the migrating birds and specially the pink flamingos!

The salt lakes are interesting and not many visitors are even aware of them. You can walk past them on your walk to the airport if you choose to skip a taxi (about a 45 minute walk). Full of birds and flamingos at the right time of year!

Very few people know about this beautiful nature trail. It runs for about 6 km from the Kamares (Aquaduct Area) to the airport. Great views of the lake, the birds and other wildlife. Great spot for jogging. Be warned, however, when the salt lake is full the area is infested with Moskitos - so make sure you bring lots of... More

During summer, the Salt Lake dries letting the ground covered in salt looking as a desolate and crusty surface.

We visited this so called lake on the first day of our stay expecting a beautiful stretch of water full of wildlife only to find out there's only water in this "lake" for about four months of the year! As it turns out it's just an area that floods during the rainy season and for the rest of the year... More

It's not one of my favourite landscapes, but it interesting anyway, especially if you learn the history behind it.
