Huge quantities of pink Flamingos, and island with nests of Heron and lots of other birds in a natural setting. There are nice walkways and observations points. It's a unique place to see a lot of birds in a natural habitat. We definitely go again...More

Every time you come here it is a surprise! The ticket gives you the possibility to get out and get in without paying a second time. You have not to miss this place if you love red flamingos

It's really a nice place to see the birds not far away. You will see a lot of flamingos and some others birds and animals. We were there end of April (last day of the month) which is the love season of the flamingos. Great...More

This doesn't cost a lot and is a beautiful park. Learn about the local wildlife and see the local landscape. Takes an hour or two.

We had less than half an hour in this park and enjoyed every minute of our visit. Yes, there were flamingoes parading. It was surreal to be so close to these lovely birds after viewing them through binoculars at the Etang du Fangassier. This is...More

Good for half a day. Nice picnic facilities and nice and easy tracks to watch bird wild life. Parking a bit chaotic on a busy day as the day we visited.

Wow. Thousands of flamingos were the highlight. Nice slow walk around perimeter was also nice but the gorgeous/awkward/awesome,frenetic, pink, long-necked, mud-slurping flamingos definitely stoke the show!
