Between mountain and sea, on the way to migratory birds.
Located between the Cap 3000 shopping center and the airport of Nice Côte d’Azur at the mouth of the Var, this bird reserve is a perfect place for migratory birds considered as the “Mini Camargue of Saint-Laurent-du-Var”.
Here, you will see little ringed plovers, sandpipers, common snipes, grey herons, little egrets, greater flamigos… 264 bird species have been observed which is almost half of those present in Europe.
Wood panels installed on the 'Green Walk' help you along the way to know the name of these birds and their main characteristics.
A natural aquarium
By the sea on the beach of Flots Bleus on limite with the Esplanade Les Goélands, a marine protected area has a total ban on fishing (order of the Mayor December 22, 2008). Indeed, a marine world where man and animals live in harmony has been recreated in an artificial cove in front of the promenade of Flots Bleus. The animals are almost tame.
