From La Zarzamora there are many opportunities for nature excursions. The region of La Janda, for example, is full of fabulous landscapes and forests.
The lake of La Janda, covering 50 square kilometers, is considered to be one of the largest in the Iberian Peninsula.
The rivers of Barbate, Almodovar, Celemin and others of less importance pour their waters into the lake, which is situated on top of a tetonic depression. When the year was especially rainy, the lake flooded to form one of the largest marshlands in the country, extending some fifty thousand square meters but with little depth.
The close proximity of the marshes in Barbate, the fresh water,and the dense vegetation favors a humid zone rich in diversity. This has converted the area into a rest zone for thousands of birds passing through annually from Gibraltar in their migratory paths.
As well you are able to enjoy walks and excursions in one of the many natural parks in the area: Parque del Estrecho, La Brena, Marismas de Barbate and the Parque Natural de Los Alcornocales.
