Le Marais de Pampin is a marsh area that is very interesting for birding. The area is made up of a large reed bed (approximately 76,800 m2!). As well as several plots of brackish water, also surrounded by reeds. All a few steps from the beach! All kinds of water birds, waders and other birds can be observed, like Common Teal, Common Greenshank, Osprey, Water Rail and Short-eared Owl.
