From the traditional salt pans of Isla Cristina where white gold shines and flamingoes dance to natural marshlands full of waders and where Montagu’s harrier and ospreys nest… we will follow birds fishing all the way to the harbour to find out more about these fishy waters and the fishing arts and history.
Fishing paradise for birds and humans. From the curious village of Isla Cristina, the history of its fishing industry, its artisanal salt pans where we can also benefits a magnesium foot and hand bath while we watch birds around, we will follow the green trail across the marshes where hundreds of channels create a non-ending maze that changes with the tides. Watching waders of all kinds, or terns dipping steeply to fish in these rich waters, pink flamingos, mediterranean gull, montagu’s harriers and osprey will lead us to the restored tidal mill (posible visit on week end). Finally we keep on to Ayamonte and Castro Marim in Portugal with extensive salt pans in a natural reserve.
