Nature in Chiclana de la Frontera
Laguna de la Paja
It’s a marshy wetland formed in a flat area with shallow waters usually maximum around half a meter deep, the depth may vary depending on the volume of rain fallen. The wildlife living in the lagoon is one of the main attractions, especially birds, and also its vegetation is what characterizes it.

Playa de Sancti-Petri
It´s a beautiful beach with a high ecological value. It is separated from La Barrosa beach by the cliffs Farallon de Laja Bermeja, but to reach on foot at low tide.
It’s worth to visit the old fishing village of Sancti Petri.
Complejo Endorreico de Chiclana
It consists of the Jeli and Montellano Lagoons and its natural surroundings. It is situated in an area of countryside with gentle hills and some not very steep elevations.
Marismas de Sancti Petri
This tidal marsh, located in the South of the Bay of Cádiz, is an area of high landscape value, since it is one of the few places that still has not been altered to use as salt evaporation ponds. The island status and the existence of significant woodland (Pinar of the Coto de la Isleta) in the highest areas, contribute clearly to provide a picture of what the dominant natural landscape must have been like at another time in the Bay of Cadiz.
It is close to the coast and is situated within the township area of Chiclana de la Frontera, a town famous among tourists for its beautiful beaches. It’s very interesting as well for its recreational possibilities which made this park possible, it has a great scenic and environmental interest as well.
