The surrounding area is well known for its ornithological bird life, this area is a natural wildlife haven with its marshland and sea birds.
If fishing is your thing, sea bass and dorada, can be caught from the Isla Canela beach at the mouth of the Guadiana river. Bait can be purchased locally but you will need to bring your own rods and reels.
Other local options are a stroll to the village of Punto del Moral, where a pharmacy and a spanish supermarket nestle in amongst numerous restaurants serving excellent food, including freshly caught fish.
The fabulous gently shelving beach on the Atlantic Ocean, has 7km of sand, is safe and the water is warm enough to swim in from May to October.
