Description:

The Algarve, internationally known as a touristic beach and golf destination, also benefits from an exceptional natural heritage as well as a great diversity of habitats, which shows that there is much more to discover in this little corner by the sea. From the mountains to the Ria Formosa by way of the Barrocal, it reckons with a privileged geographical location for the observation of migratory birds as well as of the thousands who winter over thanks to the mild climate. Seacret Tours, located in the Albufeira Marina, right in the centre of the Algarve, is only 15 minutes from the Salgados Lagoon and close to the main access roads to Barlavento (west) and Sotavento (east) of the Algarve as well as to the Alentejo plains.

Each activity is adapted to the interest and experience of the participants, whether the observers are little or very experienced. The site of Castro Marim, whose wealth is reflected by more than 200 species all year round, is one of the 10 most important wetlands for birds in Portugal.

The observation of birds such as the Little Bustard, the Slender-Billed Gull, the Spectacled Warbler, are some of the highlights in this natural reserve. This wetland is the only place in Portugal where the Lesser Short-Toed Lark nests and can be observed. In this natural reserve, we claim to proceed to the observation, -according to the highest standards of respect for nature – of resident and migrating birds all year round, in groups of 4 to 8 persons accompanied by a guide. In this area, the experience will last 4 to 8 hours (including transport and meal breaks).
