The beautiful Janda Lagoon in Cádiz

One of the most famous cities in our country is Cádiz , which is also one of the most touristy thanks to its countless charms. In fact, the entire province of Cádiz is very interesting and it is worth visiting it to get to know many of its towns and, above all, the great natural beauty that you can find in almost all its surroundings. It is one of the favorite destinations for nature lovers as it has a lot to offer in this regard.

There you will find La Janda, a region that is in the central part of the province of Cádiz and is named after the Laguna de Janda , a true natural wonder. In this region you will find several kilometers of beaches that are part of the Los Alcornocales Natural Park, as well as multiple places of interest, both natural and otherwise.

Today I would like to focus on Laguna de Janda, a true paradise not only for human eyes but also for migratory birds , because thanks to its great variety of environments and its location it is home to many of them. In fact, it is the resting place of the thousands of birds that cross the Strait of Gibraltar on their migratory flight each year. The species that can be seen the most is the crane, which comes in thousands.

To get to this wonderful place you will have to reach kilometer 55 of the road that connects Vejer de la Frontera and Tahivilla, in the northern part of the municipality of Tarifa. The damming of the Celemín and Barbate rivers in the 1940s made this area begin to become an excellent wetland, and after several years of drought it regained its vigor in the 1990s, still conserving many of its wetlands in excellent condition.
