La Mata Salt Lagoon, also known as the Blue Lagoon, is the closest to our location.
Its proximity to Hotel La Laguna Spa & Golf makes this protected natural area a mandatory stop for those who love nature. There are many ways to discover and enjoy this unique place, whether on foot, on horseback or on a mountain bike, the route is spectacular. In summer, it is recommended to avoid the central hours of the day, taking advantage of the twilight sky, avoiding the heat. During your walk you should pay attention to your surroundings as we have a high probability of spotting numerous local species of birds and some migratory ones.
Among all of them, flamingos stand out, we could say that they are the kings of the Blue Lagoon. With their elongated body and up to 170 cm wingspan, they stand out in their flight when they form large flocks to move between the coastal wetlands of the entire Mediterranean and Africa. The best time to spot them is from April to the end of summer, coinciding with their breeding season and their concentration in the area increases. If you cannot come during these dates, do not worry, you can also see them during the rest of the year since there are populations that permanently inhabit the nature reserve. The natural park has very good signage and strategically located bird watching points.
In addition to the ornithological part, on the route you can find the only autochthonous wine production of La Vega Baja del Segura. You can end your walk at sunset in the Blue Lagoon with a tasting of the local wines of La Mata, along with other typical products of the area. The microclimate generated by the location of the vines and their proximity to the Mediterranean Sea results in a unique flavor. The influence of the sea breezes cause its salinity to penetrate the grape, giving it an exotic body that is later reflected in the wine.
