Punta Entinas-Sabinar

Punta Entinas-Sabinar (El Ejido)
This fossil dune ecosystem, together with the ponds, salt marshes and saltworks of Cerrillos, harbors a large number of species, some of which are in danger of extinction. It is an ideal place for the practice of ornithology and the sighting of birds like Audouin's gulls, herons, avocets, flamingos, waders and ducks.

In this natural area is the Tower of Cerrillos: a coastal fortification dating from 1575. It will soon be restored and preserved thanks to an agreement between the municipalities of El Ejido and Roquetas de Mar.
