The coastal area of Amoudara has a lot of green bushes, parks and palmtrees. Nothing very special, no major or rare species, but if you stay in the area it's nice to stroll around looking for some birds. Because the species might not be very special, most of the birds are quit tame and good for bird photography. Birds you can run into are Hooded Crow, Sardinian Warbler, European Goldfinch and Greenfinch.



Along the coast you can park everywhere.
