Lagoa das Dunas Douradas
This small pond, nestled between the sea, two resorts and some pine, which has survived the pressure from urban surroundings.
It is covered by some emergent vegetation and serves as a refuge to several species of waterfowl, but is still very under-exploited and therefore the available information on the birds of the site is rather sparse.
The pond can be accessed from any of the surrounding resorts and is one the west and another east.
On the west there is an observation tower, while to the east there are some trees and shrubs that can be used as camouflage.
This is an area where you can observe several species of birds.
The dipper and water fowl nest in the pond and sometimes fail to see a short distance.
Where is: in the Vale do Lobo, Dunas Douradas, near Almansil and slightly west of the Quinta do Lago
Access is through the surrounding villages, but is not flagged.
Places near by: Quinta do Lago, Lagoa do Garrão, Vilamoura, Loulé, Querença
