This is reckoned to be one of Europe's greatest reserves for marshland inhabitants. Wild boar and deer [fallow and red deer] are spotted frequently during the official tour in 4 by 4 coaches, the only way of getting far into the park. Effectively it is divided into two parts, the northernmost being accessed from Matalascanas in Huelva Province whereas the southern part can only be gained through Sanlucar de Barrameda in Cádiz Province. From Matalascanas to the provincial border thre is a huge stretch of beach along which the coaches travel. there are practically no buildings and just more and more flocks of sanderlings and black-backed gulls.

'Inland' there are sand dunes of great height at different stages of cultivation by plants - from marram grass to pine trees.

Birds are as well seen form the edge of the park, like Sharm el Sheikh and in season they include flamingoes, avocets and black-winged stilts as well as many different kinds of ducks, waders and herons.
