We were really lucky that this reserve was a few minutes walk from where we were staying. We saw a wide variety of birds from Shrikes and Booted Eagles to flocks of Cattle Egrets coming into roost in the evening. We also saw Terrapins and the noise of the frogs was amazing. There are lots of paths, taking in Roman ruins, viewing towers, hides and bunkers.

Great place for hiking through nature for hours on end. You cross a couple of bunkers, there's a few viewing points and there also the ruins of a Roman farm. Fun for sure, but be prepared for the mosquitos and wear sun screen cause in some places there's almost no shadow whatsoever. If you're lucky you might see turtles of squirrels.

British birdwatchers, seeking plenty of new species to see or photograph MUST put this location on their list. On Alicante airport's doorstep, there are few places where it's possible to see so many exciting birds - and photograph many of them from the driver's seat of a rental car. A long walk to the ponds if you don't know to park on Av de Carabrasi, between Gargola and Capitel, but who knows what you might see when on foot. (Shrikes galore, for a start :o)

Great for family / friends / picnics or nature walks - especially in the summer / spring warm days. Stone tables and benches are available and there is plenty of space for large groups. I have been coming here for a few years and it's a great little spot.
