24th February: Free guided route in San Pedro de Pinatar Salinas Natural Park
San Pedro del Pinatar is the home of the Las Salinas natural park, an area of salt flats which is home to a wide variety of birds, plants, and wildlife.
This is a free guided route that follows the path of the Tarays, which runs parallel to the perimeter drainage channel protecting the Salinas and contains less salt water, the plains themselves, offering a different type of wildfowl to the often seen in the main Salinas.
The route also reaches the El Mojon beach along the Mediterranean coast.
Departure is at 10:00 from the roundabout with a flamingo structure on it (Rontonda de Los Flamencos, Avenida del Puerto) which is just a few meters from the Salinas visitors centre.
The route will take about 3 hours and covers roughly around 4.3km. Suitable footwear is essential, use of hats, sunglasses, sun cream, and mosquito repellent is strongly advised. Participants should also carry water and a snack and binoculars should they wish to better observe birdlife.
For more information contact the Salinas visitor’s centre, or the Tourist Office.
