Full description
Discover Salgados, a medium sized coastal lagoon, surrounded by dunes and farming fields. Well known for the abundance of bird species with more than 200 different birds having been already registered. 

Walk through this national birdwatching hot spot. You will observe numerous bird species and perhaps some rarities as well. Spot the Marsh harrier, the Purple heron, the Ferruginous duck, the Collared pratincole, the Penduline tit, amongst many other species.

Seasons provide different highlights for you. Suring the spring, a large number of species start breeding at the lagoon and, autumn, with its migrations is the most exciting season of the year for bird watching where most rarities can be observed.
