Odiel Marshes Biosphere Reserve


A place where you can discover the 'magic' of the tides. This is a good way to describe this area in the Andalusian province of Huelva between the mouths of the Tinto and Odiel rivers. Thanks to the action of the tides, you'll be able to see dune barriers, islands separated by arms of water, and high and medium marshes. What animals can you find there? This Reserve is a stopping point for migratory birds. It has more than 200 species of birds, some of which are curious such as the spoonbills and ospreys, and others eye-catching like flamingos. In addition to birds, you can also see chameleons and lynx. What's on offer in the Biosphere Reserve? Besides gazing at these landscapes and enjoying the scent of salt and the sea breeze, we recommend a trip to the towns of Huelva, Moguer, Palos de la Frontera and Punta Umbría, and that you pay a visit to the Monastery of La Rábida. And of course, don't miss taking a dip on any of the beaches on the Costa de la Luz.
