The park provides attractive walks of different lengths with the... More

There are many flamingos and the walk around the park is quite lovely. There are many places to take pictures and see the birds, who are nevertheless not stressed because the park is well-planned to keep humans and fauna separate. Very enjoyable!

Spent the morning with my 9 yr old grandson. It is angriest place to see all kind of birds, such flamingoes, egretts and many more. There are different circuits to suit all. We had a lunchtime sandwich for 3€. A very interesting park well managed.

Loved visiting this place, I only tried to smaller section but this is the place to visit in Les Saintes. You invite yourself in the home of the birds and it is magical.

This is a very well kept birding park. You can see (and photograph) flamingos and other species from a very close distance. It is also a good place to tell your kids about birds and birding. Excellent infrastructure. They only accept cash, no card payments!

A great way to get acquainted with the Camargue ecosystem. Numerous trails, so you can choose a short or long visit. Plenty of pink flamingos, other bird species, and information boards to identify them. Warning: bring your hat, sunscreen, and water.
