The Ebro Delta is the delta region of the Ebro River (Catalan: Ebre, Spanish: Ebro), in the Province of Tarragona, Catalonia, in northeastern Spain. It is on the Mediterranean Sea, and is the northernmost point, by some designations, of the Gulf of Valencia. Its location per Ramsar site designation is.GeographyThe Ebro Delta is one of the largest wetland areas 320km2 in the western Mediterranean region. The Ebro delta has expanded rapidly on soils washed downriver. The town of Amposta, a seaport in the 4th century, demonstrates the historical rate of growth of the delta as it is now located well inland from the current river mouth. The rounded form of the delta attests to the balance between sediment deposition by the Ebro and removal of this material by wave erosion.The area at the primary mouth of the Ebro is currently protected by several fluvial islands: the Isle of Garxal (280ha), the Isle of Sant Antoni (170ha), and the Isle of Buddha (1231ha).The Ebro Delta was placed, with 7.736 ha in 1993, on the Ramsar Convention list of wetlands of international importance as defined for the conservation and sustainable utilization of wetlands, recognizing the fundamental ecological functions of wetlands and their economic, cultural, scientific, and recreational value.UsesAgricultureSome delta areas have been drained for agricultural use over the centuries. The modern delta is in intensive agricultural use for rice, fruit (in particular citrus), and vegetables. A network of canals and irrigation ditches constructed by both agricultural and conservation groups are helping to maintain the ecologic and economic resources of the Ebro Delta.

  • We have worth its price with the family (4 people including dog) a river cruise approx. 75 minutes booked and €40 for all secure. Dogs are forbidden on board. We asked nicely at the ticket booth and after quick look to our dear golden retriever with. What a shame for a gorgeous nature reserve, garbage in the channels, and many fast boats and Kanufahrer.Vom binoculars take observation tower to see flamingos!

  • This is a very nice and interesting excursion. It is best to catch a boat that takes you to the mouth of the Ebro river. It costs less than € 10 and lasts 45 minutes. There is a guide where goes explaining you all what you're seeing

  • A beautiful natural park with the growing areas and the diversity of animals. It is worth seeing the different birds that you can find in their natural habitat. And it is worth hanging out at the beach area, where you have enough space to enjoy the scenery as you wish. Ideal to spend the day or go with the family on Sunday.
