Delta del Llobregat, El Prat de Llobregat

(4.6/5 based on 40+ reviews on the web)
Discover the varied plant and animal life of Delta del Llobregat. Over the centuries, human industry has transformed the vast, 98 sq km (37.8 sq mi) area of wetlands where the Llobregat River empties out into the Mediterranean, first through agriculture, and later through the encroaching urban sprawl of Barcelona. Today, only around 900 hectares (2,224 acres) of protected natural land remains, providing a refuge for wildlife. Keep your eyes peeled for 350 species of bird, as well as butterflies, moths, dragonflies, and many other insects, amphibians, mammals, and fish. The park offers guided tours of its habitats, ensuring you get the most out of exploring the lakes, marshes, wet meadows, and beaches. Bird watchers can take a specialist ornithology guide. Alternatively, simply stroll at your own pace. Make Delta del Llobregat a centerpiece of your El Prat de Llobregat vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our El Prat de Llobregat vacation generator.

  • A very well maintained bird reserve just beside airport. Quite hard to find entrance however off motorway. 2 great hides overlooking the lagoon & many other viewing points along the routes.  more »
  • For those who do not know, and go as a couple with children or elderly people, this is a good 15 minutes from the city. Despite being next to the airport, it is a quiet area where strolling, bathing on the beach, play with the children, do sport or enjoy watching the birds that live or nest in this wetland of the Llobregat. The area is quiet, safe and also has a climate warmer than Barcelona. You get to the Sun practically at all times because there scarcely wooded areas, but it is no problem as there are sources for cooling. If you go to the beach of the Bunyola Espais Naturals you can visit the old House of the Carabiners and the building of the traffic light, but you can not access the beach as it is a protection area for birds. If you're from the viewpoint of the planes to the South, you are surrounded the airport and arrive at the beach of El Prat. You decide. Except in summer, the whole area is little visited.

  • The natural areas of the Llobregat Delta give you a plus of experiences in nature to few meters of the great city of Barcelona and bordering the airport. From the spaces of Cal Tet and Ca L' Spider to the lagoons of Remolar Philippines in Viladecans, you have a gift for the senses. Thousands of birds and hundreds of species of plants, invertebrates, reptiles... Grab your camera and don't miss a minute.
