  • This place just outside Santes-Maries-de -la-Mer is well worth a stop on the into or out of town. There aren't too many places in Europe where you'll see flamingoes in the wild, but here you'll see...

  • An easy walking estuary with flamingos and other wildlife. There are several paths and routes, so you can make it very short or much longer. We spent almost two hours because we stopped and watched the birds and took a lot of photos. Relax and enjoy your time. The paths and boardwalk further away from the entrance are quieter and have excellent views of wildlife.
  • Very nice park, took the long route, nice way to spend an afternoon
