Fodor's Review

Europe's major nesting area for the greater flamingo is a shallow saltwater lagoon. In February and March, these birds arrive from Africa by the thousands to breed, returning to Africa in August when the water dries up. The visitor center has information on wildlife. Bring binoculars if you have them. On weekends and public holidays in April and May—flamingo hatching time—the visitor center suspends its usual lunchtime closure. Guided tours are available in English (€6 per person, book ahead of time by phone).
