Bird watching around Vejer de la Frontera

ibis

If you are a keen birdwatcher or simply enjoy being among our feathered friends, Hotel Sindhura is the perfect place for you. The area around Vejer de la Frontera is a birdwatcher’s paradise.

Whether you are wandering through the country lanes or visiting one of the stunning natural parks within easy reach of the hotel, you will be treated to an ornithologist’s delight.

The coastal areas are particularly interesting because they are on the main migration route to and from Africa across the Straits of Gibraltar. Just a short drive from the hotel, Barbate Natural Park is a perfect spot to watch the migrating birds as well as the many species native to the coast and wetlands.

Or travel a little further north and take advantage of the purpose built birdwatching facilities in the Doñana National Park, one of Europe’s finest wetland parks.

Or head for the the mountains in the Los Alcornocales Natural Park and Sierra de Grazalema Natural Park . . . you are literally spoilt for choice in every direction.

Here are just some of the species you can expect to see:

Audouin’s Gull Bee-eater Black-eared Wheatear
