The Old Salt Marshes

coucher de soleil sur les étangs

Bordered to the north by the Massif de la Gardiole Hills, to the south by the Ingril lake and connected to the Mediterranean Sea, the Salt Marshes of Frontignan  is a perfect place for hikers, cyclists, dog walkers and any outdoor enthusiasts . The 230 hectares of former saltworks owned by the Conservatoire du Littoral are protected natural wetlands and are classified by Natura 2000 (European Network of Ecological Sites).

Salt Marsh Trail

By bike or by foot,  this trail is a 15 km loop on flat ground around the Ingril Lake and opens onto wetlands, the old saltworks and the Aresquiers Woods. The wooden decking that crosses the lagoon ensures that the visitor is completely immersed in the fauna and flora of the salt marshes. A haven for migratory species, along the trail you will come across large colonies of flamingos, white-backed stilts, terns, ducks …….. Or you can simply enjoy a truly peaceful atmosphere with breathtaking views !!

 

To help you plan your walk, free trail maps are available at the Tourist Office or you can download the brochures on our website.
