Delta de l'Ebre, Spain

48 images Created 23 Sep 2010

The Delta de l'Ebre is located in the bottom corner of Catalunya and is comprised of around 320 square kilometres of sandy delta constituting the biggest wetland in Catalunya and is one of the most important aquatic habitats in the western Mediterranean. Designated a natural park, its brackish lagoons, marshes and dunes and reed beds are home to thousands of wintering birds and provide excellent fishing. The scenery is unique in Catalunya, with low roads running through field after field of rice paddies, punctuated by solitary houses and small villages, before emerging onto dune-lined beaches.

Since much of the area of the Parc Natural de Delta de l'Ebre is a protected zone, access is limited. It's also difficult to visit without your own transport, though the effort of doing so is rewarded by tranquility and space.
