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.
