  • EVOA provides the opportunity to do birdwatching just next of one of the biggest estuary of Europe. In any time of the year you can spot many different species. There are several observation huts, and I strongly advise to use a guided tour. It is suitable for children and our guide demonstrated special attentions to them. In the central office there is an extensive and complete exhibit, and you also are given the opportunity to witness a documentary. Carefully plan your trip, as it has some kilometers of dirt road, with some holes and bumps. As a rule of thumb just follow the boards, to not go over 40 km/h. There are many ticks in the area. This is normal due to the animals that live there. So as an advise protect yourself. Using closed shoes and clear cloths make it easier to spot them in advance. Inspect your trouser legs every 200 meters. It has all the potential for five star rating, except for some details. The EVOA is starting to show its age, so it is "the time" to start doing it so. There is a bar, but little service. We wanted to eat something (with the kids), and the (only) waitress was having lunch. So bring your own food. Go and visit EVOA ASAP. It is well worth it. Take the first early hours so it does not become too hot during the visit.
