    The Marsh is an area of fresh water near the sea, have routes for the runnings, bikes, walks, possesses its own flora and an area for the cultivation of rice, hurt before in many peoples of the Valencian Community (when had not burst the excessive construction) there are rice fields, there should stick to natural parks such as this or the Albufera. Protected site. A beauty like no other.

    When freshwater from rivers mixes with the salty, from both leaks, somewhere inland, this natural phenomenon occurs. Well this place carries this name and is a clear example of this. The only thing is that here you notice is the hand of the man but the clean waters of the Marjal de Pego-Oliva arising Crystal at the foot of the mountains of Mustalla and it behind, they flooded the Park giving rise to fangs and the rivers "Bullent" and "Molinell", that feed the Marsh and its network of canals and criss-cross, recreating landscapes water of extraordinary beauty and diversity as it applies to the Font Salada.

  • Warm springs. Fun day out with the children. Probanly not suitable for children under 4 as it's close to a road and quite dangerous. But my 4 and half year old lo ed it.
  • Climbing on the Penon D'Ifac. You can either go the top the hard way or take the easier path to the top. Amazing views.
  • Very nice view, not much to do.
  • Pego-Oliva Marshland, a big biodiversity space Between the province of Alicante Valencia, there is a big area of 1290 hectares that is called the Pego Oliva Marshland Natural Park, the best quality wetland of the coast, which represents one of the biggest biodiversity places in the Spanish Mediterranean. Not only because of its geographic location ( between the alluvial cones of the Gallinera River and the Girona River and framed by the Mostalla, Migdia and Segaria Mountain Ranges, forming an opened space, in the shape of a horseshoe, spreading as far as the sea), but also the right balance between the traditional rice farming and the respect for the environment. In this geographic location, there are all the ecosystems that are characteristic in the Mediterranean coast sedimentation: a very well preserved coast, despite the level of urbanization; brackish waters with a very specific flora, the humidity – especially dedicated to rice farming, crossed by irrigation canals and watered by the Bullent- Vedat river and the Racons Molinell river – and citric farming. Having the mountains close by, guarantees the existence of innumerous animals and plants. The Pego-Oliva Marshland is one of the oldest lagoons that has reached the highest level of silting. Since old times, hunting and fishing had a very big importance. Later, rice cultivation was added. In this area there were a lot of types that were produced, as the Bombón and the Pegolí, and there are other types that are cultivated and very well appreciated, as the bomba rice. Nowadays they do some ecologic experimental farming, and they have already seventeen types of rice. Before or after you visit this prominent natural area – that has several types of protection – we suggest you visit the Pego Ethnological Museum, where the population, touched by their natural heritage and the traditional agricultural activities, made sure to preserve everything that has a connection with farming and the rice commercialization. In the museum you can see more traditional professions, as the orange farming.
  • There really isn't a great deal to see here, if you like to walk in the hot sun with little shade then there are loads of trails through the country side.
