The beautiful Laguna de Janda in Cádiz


One of the most famous cities in our country is Cadiz, which is also one of the most touristy thanks to its countless charms. In fact, the entire province of Cádiz is very interesting and it is worth visiting it to know many of its towns and, above all, the great natural beauty that you can find in almost all of its surroundings. It is one of the preferred destinations for nature lovers as it has a lot to offer in this regard.

There you will find La Janda, a region that is in the central part of the province of Cádiz and is named for the Janda Lagoon, a true natural wonder. In this region you will find several kilometers of beaches that are part of the Alcornocales Natural Park, as well as multiple places of interest, both natural and otherwise.


Today I would like to focus on the Janda Lagoon, a true paradise not only for human eyes but also for migratory birds, and it is that thanks to its great variety of environments and its location it houses many of them. In fact, it is the resting place of the thousands of birds that cross the Strait of Gibraltar on their migratory flight each year. The species that can do the most is the crane, which arrives in thousands.


To get to this wonderful place you will have to reach kilometer 55 of the road that connects Vejer de la Frontera and Tahivilla, in the northern part of the municipality of Tarifa. The embalming of the Celemín and Barbate rivers in the 1940s made this area begin to become an excellent wetland, and after several years of drought it regained its vigor in the 1990s, still keeping many of its wetlands in excellent condition.
