It is only a short walk from parking to the nature reserve, where you can observe birds from several viewing stands. Lots of flamingos and herons. The paths were clearly marked with indications of sights along the way and walking distances. The beaches were sandy...More

Scenery is still interesting out of season but birds, such as flamingos are missing. Beaches have that deserted look. Heavy rain can cut off some of the paths down to the lakes. Signs could be better but it does still make a diverting morning walk...More

Easy excursion, beautiful walk. Perfect combination of nature and sea. If you are lucky you can see the flamingos flying.

You will need a car to get here and the journey is through very small lanes in low lying swampy land. Parking at the dead end is difficult. There is some parking on the road but you will probably end up paying €3-4 at one...More

We had a lovely morning spotting flamingos, most of which were in the south lake. In the afternoon we went to cava Grande del fume cassibile which is a gorge with a fantastic view but closed off for walking down due to safety reasons. As...More
