Beautiful countryside, however the main purpose of visit was to see the flamingos in the lake. Was pretty sure water levels would be high due to wet winter in Andalucia, this was not the case however which meant flamingos were at far side of lake quiet a long way away. Water levels need to be high to get good view.

A delightful couple of hours. The viewing stations dotted around the park were excellent and we got to see quite a few of the flamingos themselves. Can be over run at times with primary school trips so you might need to be strategic and flexible when planning your way around the park.

This small town has a charming square with numerous cafes for drinks or meals. We stopped off here on our way back from visiting the Lagoon which is a few minutes drive away. The main attraction of the Lagoon is the visiting Flamingoes which are only in evidence at certain times of the year. Apart from that the area can... More

The visitors centre was closed and the flamingos were nowhere to be seen. Other visitors agreed totally that this site was overrated.

Interesting to see Flamingo`s in the natural state, very interesting write up in the visitors centre and a good place for a walk round too. Couple it with a visit to the nearby Donkey sanctuary makes the journey from Malaga worth the trip.

I know this is a lovely place to go to see the flamingoes in the right season, but sadly the lakes are very low at the moment and so no flamingoes. Still, it was a lovely day out with family to show them Andalucía's beautiful hinterland. We also took the opportunity to try the local food; so, armed with our... More

Quaint little town centred around a square complete with bars and restaurants. Seems to be a popular holiday home and retirement town with a very chilled pace of life. Still building homes in the town. Well worth visiting though, especially to visit the Lagoon.

A large lagune amidst the mountains of Antequera and olive groves, Fuente de Piedra is a nice stop. In the spring and early summer, the lagune houses a large colony of flamingos. If the temperature allows, a walk around the Katie on its well appointed paths is definitely worthwhile. Drawback is that you never come close to the water's edge... More
