This is on the northwest side of the island by the power plant. we did see a few Flamingos but not like the south of the island. This is the quiet side of the island with minimal traffic and people.

This was a beautiful spot to see the flamingos. You can see this Lake Gotomeer from two different spots. It's worth going to see.

For photos it would be better in the morning because the sun is harsh in the evening. You also can’t really see the sun set. It is a great place to watch the flamingos eat and preen and swim. Well worth the drive.
