Birdwatching in the midst of the wonders of the wetlands
The area of Pula, besides beaches and dreamlike forests, also offers wetlands, another natural bounty which is unique in the South of Sardinia: the Laguna di Nora.
Separated from the sea by the Fradis Minoris peninsula, a system of channels and islets has developed which communicates with the estuary of the Rio Arrieras. The lagoon provides unique opportunities for those who enjoy birdwatching, in view of the abundant coastal birdlife present here: the rare Corsican gull has chosen it as one of its most prolific nesting areas of Europe. The surrounding environment is something to take in on a hike under the sky, as you learn to distinguish between the various scented essences of the local plants, or otherwise you can pierce through the stretch of water of the lagoon by canoe, steering past islets and streams.
The waters of the lagoon are inhabited by seabass, eel, bream, seabream, and mullet, and it is the location for sustainable fishery carried out with traditional boats and equipment. The lagoon in addition is a recovery center for whales and turtles as from 1993, dedicated to accommodating, treating, and rehabilitating specimens which have been beached or in difficulty otherwise.
