Plage & marais de Bétahon is a feeding place for coastal shorebirds and seabirds, numerous shorebirds on marshes and a few nesting species. Very good for birdwatching. Some of the species you can see here are Bar-tailed Godwit, Black-winged Stilt, Avocet, European Turtle Dove, Little Ringed Plover and Common Ringed Plover.
