  • Very accessible site with 20 bird hides, all well positioned and providing good cover. A great selection of sea and shore birds (as well as red squirrel). Even in December, or especially in December.....  more »

  • If you are a bird lover, nature lover then this place is for you. I really appreciate the authority people how decided to provide some nice place for birds. Save birds. Hope I visit again. If you want click good bird pics go morning times. Don't be late.
  • Doesn’t worth the money (9 eur per person): 1) Almost no birds: we’ve seen only a coupled ducks (maybe it’s a seasonal problem, I don’t know, but ticket price wasn’t reduced) 2) there is a path around park which is available for free - just use it and you will see absolutely the same landscapes + you will have more freedom in directions to go in this case
  • Very nice place to see some wild birds, beautiful walk, I enjoyed it a lot. Certainly take your binoculars with you or rent one! The rented ones were of very descent quality.
  • Fascinating place and a worthwhile visit. They rent binoculars at the entrance. A long trail - I think about 6km long but very well marked with lots of nooks and crannies to be examined. It wasn't the height of the bird season when we visited however there was plenty of exciting things to see and photograph. Take note: if you are hungry after your visit and it is lunchtime - be aware that the restaurant in the nearby city doesn't serve after 13:30 roughly. He sent us back to the reserve where there is a restaurant - and they laughed in our faces when we asked for something to eat at 14:30!! Better yet: take a picnic lunch as there are tables nearby in a lovely park - and I think there are also picnic grounds within the reserve itself.
  • At high tide you can see lots of birds of many kinds. There are plenty of observation spots and you get quite close to the birds. The full circuit is 6km and takes 3-4 hours. Binoculars are a must and can be rented at the entrance for 3 euros
