The authorities have managed to protect the area yet make it available for public use and enjoyment in the form of campsites, recreation grounds and long, golden beaches.
The various bird watching stations combine with excellent visitor information centres and planned walking or cycling routes. Each year the park receives hundreds of thousands of visitors.
Many of the villages and towns around the park are worthy of a visit. Such as the town of El Rocio, a unique and strange place of worship. Here you will also find a large lake (above) that is home to flamingos and other birds. Sit in the restaurant and enjoy the tranquillity.
